Two weeks ago, Michael Beard and the Duck Tape Crew won the Stock/Super Stock Iron Man Classic at Roxboro Motorsports Dragway in Roxboro, North Carolina. One week ago, the Duck Tape Volare returned to Roxboro for the season finale of the Stock/Super Stock Series. In his second race at the facility, Beard came away with his second victory.

“The K&N Engineering Products are great as always,” said Beard. “I change the oil in the Volare several times a year, using the K&N Gold Oil Filters. I wash the K&N Air Cleaner and FIPK (Fuel Injection Performance Kit) elements a couple of times a year and re-oil them. K&N is high-performance and low maintenance, I never have to worry about my K&N Products.”

To get from race to race Duck Tape Racing also uses K&N FIPKs (air intakes) and K&N Performance Oil Filters (HP-3002) on its tow vehicles. “We pick up a lot of power with K&N,” said Beard.

The IHRA racer also plans to participate in the $20,000 Footbrake Race on Thanksgiving Weekend. That will occur at Piedmont Dragway in North Carolina.
