Friday, November 01, 2013


Race fans can now enter the 2014 K&N Horsepower Challenge Sweepstakes, where eight finalists will be given a trip to Las Vegas for the SummitRacing.com NHRA Nationals. In addition to winning the trip for two, the eight finalists will be given a chance to win the 2014 K&N Horsepower Challenge Edition vehicle, which is once again a fabulous Toyota Tacoma courtesy of Toyota Racing. 

“We’re thrilled to announce the sixth edition of the K&N Horsepower Challenge Sweepstakes, a truly unique experience for fans to gain behind-the-scenes access to NHRA racing," said Steve Williams, K&N vice president. “The race experience alone is enough to get someone excited, and then when we throw in the chance to win a brand new K&N Horsepower Challenge Edition Toyota Tacoma, the finalists can barely contain their excitement. Everyone should have this experience at least once in their lifetime, and we have Toyota to thank for providing the 2014 Tacoma.”

Toyota has been the official K&N Horsepower Challenge vehicle sponsor for the past two years, and they’ve promised another great Tacoma for the 2014 Sweepstakes. “Toyota is pleased to continue its partnership with K&N Filters in this popular fan-focused promotion initiative,” said Don Brown, National Motorsports manager at Toyota.

The longest-running specialty event in the NHRA, the K&N Horsepower Challenge is a unique race-within-a-race, pitting the seven Pro Stock racers who have accumulated the most qualifying points over the last year and one driver selected by the fans in a three-round, high-dollar shootout, with the winner pocketing $50,000. 

2013 K&N Horsepower Challenge winner Allen Johnson congratulated Vincent Jardine, who won a Toyota Tundra truck as Johnson's paired fan in the Challenge.

Each finalist is randomly paired with one of the eight qualified Pro Stock drivers, then the finalist whose driver wins the race will take home the "K&N Horsepower Challenge Edition Toyota Tacoma," a unique 2014 vehicle specifically created by Toyota Racing Development (TRD) and K&N Filters for this event.

As a two-time champion of this specialty race and the defending winner, Allen Johnson knows what the event is all about, and he’ll be shooting to win the title again in 2014. “The entire K&N experience is really great for our team; it makes us feel like royalty in with all the stars. The K&N family is an exceptional group of people. It’s a five-star experience for sure and to help Vincent win the truck was the highlight of the weekend.”
