AVONDALE, Ariz. -- K&N Engineering of Riverside, Calif., a leading innovator of filters in the automotive industry, has signed on as the presenting sponsor for the USAC Silver Crown Series and as the official oil and air filters of USAC, effective today.
The two-year agreement extends through the 2007 season and includes contingency and year-end award postings.
"We're very happy that after three years as a sponsor that K&N has stepped up its program and become the presenting sponsor for the USAC Silver Crown Series," said Steve Farmer, USAC's National Director of Sales and Marketing. "We look forward to building an even longer lasting partnership with K&N as we build the program for future expansion."
Added Charles Maier, K&N Engineering Director of Sports Marketing: "The USAC organization is the best place for grassroots racing, which encompasses the majority of our customer base, at least that's the way we see it. Our company employs several grassroots racers, so it's something that we're part of. It seems a natural fit to be the presenting sponsor of the Silver Crown Series and an official sponsor of USAC."
