Avon, Ind. (April 11, 2001) K&N -- the "Worlds Best" Races with Championship Off-Road Racing

K&N Engineering, Inc., "manufacturer of the world's best air filters", has been the innovative leader in the air filter technology since 1963, serving the needs of the automotive market plus motorcycle, marine, industrial and military markets.

Located in a new 280,000 square foot building in Riverside, Calif., K & N now employs over 400 people at this location. K & N also has a manufacturing plant in the UK, which covers Scandinavia, Russia, the Middle East, and the European market.

Today, K & N equips about 80% of all off-road racing vehicles with wins in every major off-road event in the world, including Pikes Peak, the Baja 500 & 1000, and the grueling Paris to Dakar race. K & N also dominates the world's most prestigious and technical racing association with nine of twelve Formula One teams using K & N air filters. Every one of the last five Formula One World Champions have won using K & N Filters. Most recently, the Viper GTS-R team won at LeMans (with a K & N air filter) making this the first time ever an American manufacturer has won this prestigious event with a production-based car.

"The CORR EXXON Superflo Series is sure to benefit with increased performance from K & N products and we are thrilled to be on board with this series," said Race Support Manager John Shelton. "This will be an exciting year for K & N and we are eager to see the series get underway at the Midwest Off-Road Raceway in Fort Dodge, Iowa, and observe how the season unfolds," added Shelton.
