Comments Off on AIRAID RENEWS SPONSORSHIP WITH MANUFACTURERS SERIES IN 2014
AIRAID returns to the Manufacturers Series in 2014 as a sponsor at a select number of events to promote their new line of performance filters built specifically for racers.
“We’re pleased to continue our support of the Super Chevy, Fun Ford, and Mega Mopar Series,” said Trent McGee of AIRAID Filter Company. “The events have always been class-act, and we’re excited about having our brand associated with this growing series of events.”
Fun Ford Weekend, Super Chevy Show and Mega Mopar Action participants can expect Airaid goodie bag items such as, decals, pens and catalogs, as well see them lining the track fences in Sponsor Row.
“The Manufacturers Series is thrilled to have AIRAID as a sponsor again in 2014 and proud to have the opportunity to share relevant high-quality products with our participants and spectators, whether it’s AIRAID’s existing line of street performance Cold Air Intake systems or the new line of filters designed for the race track,” said Mfg. Series Director, Sara Griewing.
AIRAID recently unveiled the new purpose-built Track Day and Race Day Filters designed specifically for racing engines. Track Day Filters are designed for maximum flow while maintaining particulate protection. Track Day Filters feature the same quality construction as AIRAID’s regular air filters, including sturdy polyurethane casings, wire mesh construction, and layers of high flow cotton gauze. They are designed to provide restriction-free airflow while still maintaining adequate filtration. Track Days Filters are shipped dry but can be oiled by the end user if desired.
Race Day Filters are designed strictly to keep large debris out of the engine. Constructed with sturdy polyurethane casings and a durable wire mesh screen, they are built without any filtration media. Race Day Filters are intended for race day only and should only be used at on concrete or asphalt racing surfaces such as a drag strip or road course.
Both Track Day and Race Day Filters are manufactured in the USA and are backed by a 90-day warranty. These filters are not intended for street use and are not recommended for any off-the-shelf Cold Air Intake system that will be used in anything other than a controlled racing environment.
