CORONA, Calif. (April 23, 2015) – Showing continued appreciation for grass roots motorsports across the United States, K&N Filters has expanded its 2015 Team Lucas involvement to encompass multiple racing series this year.
For 2015, K&N Filters has been named “Official Sponsor of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series” and “Official Filter of the Lucas Oil Modified Series.” Furthermore, K&N Filters has stepped up to provide sponsorship to the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series, Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series and the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League. Overall, K&N Filters will have a presence at several hundred racing events this year.
Ryan Fellman, K&N Filters Team and Driver Support Manager, noted that the company has continually partnered with Team Lucas for several years because Lucas Oil events provide the air and oil filter manufacturer the perfect venue to support competitors while showcasing the company’s superior product line to on-site spectators and the millions of dedicated race fans watching on television.
“K&N Filters and Team Lucas have had an extensive relationship for many years,” Fellman said. “Competitors using high-performance Lucas Oils need the high-performance air and oil filters engineered by K&N Filters. Spectators that walk through any Lucas Oil racing paddock will quickly notice how many top-notch competitors have K&N Filters affixed to their performance vehicles. We believe that speaks volumes when it comes to the quality of our products.”
Bob Patison, Lucas Oil Executive Vice-President, said: “Be it dirt, asphalt or water; K&N Filters has lent support to Lucas Oil racing efforts from the very start. It is safe to say that K&N Filters has played a major role in the success of multiple Lucas Oil racing series, and have been equally influential in the success of many racers around the world for a very long time.”
