For most of the year K&N Engineering’s Truck and Trailer Program is in high gear. From February through November our custom 18-wheeler can be seen at races and events throughout the United States. It is stocked with K&N products and manned by experts prepared to answer any questions

“Our truck and trailer is a rolling billboard,” said K&N Event and Trailer Specialist Tony Yorkman. “It shows people we have support for our programs. In our mobile showroom, consumers can view the product first hand and get one-on-one interaction.”

We consider this program a mobile classroom, and a chance to tell our consumers what is new, said K&N Vice President of Product Development and Engineering Steve Williams. “People who come to the K&N 18-wheeler can touch our products and get all their questions answered,” he said. “Sometimes it is easier to retain information by seeing our products, handling them and understanding how they work. This type of interaction is the difference between communicating face-to-face rather than on the phone”

At the events, K&N experts also let consumers know immediately where they can get our products. “We have the potential to reach more than one million people across the United States,” said Williams. “There will be 27 stops in 2007.”

The K&N Truck and Trailer Program staff has access to a diverse crowd, from racers to consumer event show attendees. “On an average weekend we have access to anywhere from 20 thousand to 200 thousand people,” said Yorkman. “Every person who visits the K&N 18-wheeler and opts to fill out a survey has the opportunity to win a K&N Intake System for their vehicle. We give away one or two intake systems a day at every major race or event.”

K&N also has an independent repair facility sign up program at our mobile showroom. “We sign dealers up and put them on our website,” said Yorkman. “They receive updates and point of purchase materials. It also builds a relationship between K&N and the dealers. We are the factory support without being direct.”

At the K&N Truck you’ll be able to see our latest videos and commercials on our plasma television. There are occasionally racing celebrities and calendar girls at the events to sign autographs.

“We are also proud of our charity events,” said Yorkman. “In 2006 we have 100 percent of our proceeds from our coloring project for charity to the juvenile diabetes fund.”
