AMSOIL and Racing
Many oil companies produce specialty racing oils for elite groups and do not offer them to the general public.
For instance, several popular oil manufacturers produce racing oils offered only to NASCAR racers. AMSOIL
receives inquiries as to why the company does not offer "special," higher-quality or NASCAR oils.
However, all AMSOIL synthetic motor oils are already formulated to a higher level than competitors' oils, and AMSOIL Dominator Synthetic Racing Oils are no exception. They provide maximum performance and superior protection to all racers, regardless of their level of competition. The same AMSOIL Dominator Synthetic Racing Oils that are used in the engines of AMSOIL corporately-sponsored racers such as Scott Douglas and Brady Smith are available to everyone.
Every professional race car in the world uses synthetics, and most of them have been using AMSOIL for decades. Many have a lot of money at stake with their "big oil" sponsors, who want you to believe that what is advertised on the car is what's running in the engine.
Indy Car racing legend Bobby Unser spoke at the AMSOIL 30th Anniversary Convention. Unser is a 3-time Indy 500 winner, has 25 overall Indy Car wins and is a 13-time Pikes Peak Hill Climb winner. He told the audience how his race car differentials could not survive more than one race up Pikes Peak without needing to be rebuilt, until he started using AMSOIL lubricants. This experience in Bobby's early years of racing began his long relationship with AMSOIL synthetic motor oil and lubricants in all his race cars. Bobby went on to say that "AMSOIL is the Best Synthetic Lubricant made, the Standard to which all others are judged." Hear it from Bobby himself in the video below.
Extended Drain Intervals mean Less Waste Oil, Less Pollution, a Cleaner Environment
"Improperly disposed used oil," according to the Environmental Protection Agency, "is the largest single source of oil pollution fouling our nation's waters. According to the American Petroleum Institute, it amounts to "up to 200 million gallons of used motor oil... dumped every year down sewers, drains or in the ground." API reminds us, too, that, "A single quart of oil can foul thousands of gallons of water."... Continue reading this article
AMSOIL News UpdatesWhere to Find AMSOIL Locally
|The Original, 1972|
Twenty years later, things began to change. Due in part to pressures to improve fuel economy, and in part due to the increased performance demands of internal combustion engines, most of the major oil companies followed the AMSOIL lead and began to add synthetic oil to their product lineups. What they didn't have, however, was the two decades experience in formulating premium synthetic lubricants for any and every kind of engine application, and the lessons learned from billions of miles service by real life customers.
In the beginning people asked what it was. Today, people understand the value of AMSOIL synthetic oils and and fluids, and the question now asked is, "Where can I find it?"
AMSOIL is available at our online store at amsoil.com, but you can also use our Online Locator to find an AMSOIL Dealer or retail outlet in your own home town.

-SEMA Feature of the Week: 6Pack Prepares for SEMA Debut as Cameras Roll
We caught up with Vallery to get his take on his first SEMA-bound project, having his build filmed from start to SEMA, and how it came to be known as ‚Äė6Pack‚Äô‚Ä¶and it‚Äôs not only because it rolls on six semi-truck wheels.
Is this your first time attending SEMA as a project builder?
Michael Vallery: This is my first year attending SEMA with a project. I've always been interested in cars and trucks. I started modifying them myself with my first truck, my grandpa's 1986 Chevy C10, at the age of 15.
What are your favorite modifications that make this truck ‚Äėyou‚Äô?
MV: I would have to say my favorite mods to this truck would have to be the bodydrop and the 24" semi wheels. We knew going into this that the bodydrop was going to be a huge amount of work. But me and my builder Jake McKiddie both wanted it done. There are not that many Chevy duallies out there that are bodydropped with the Duramax diesel under the hood. The motor is gigantic. We both knew that most likely, it was going to be the only bodydropped 2015 Chevy dually at SEMA this year. I've always loved lowered trucks. I've built a lifted truck before, but I always end up coming back to the lowered side. The semi wheels make the truck for me. I've grown up in a family owned and operated trucking business, so I've been around 18- wheelers my whole live. I think it's safe to say that trucks are in my blood.
You‚Äôve got a video feature planned with Solo Films DVD. Can you tell us about that?
MV: SoloFilms is in the process of filming the build of the truck from start to finish. The upcoming DVD will include interviews with myself and Jake, as well as footage from the shop with Jake doing his thing on the truck. The plan is for the crew to ride out to SEMA with us. They'll be able to film along the way and catch the truck in the booth at the show, as well as the rest of the show.
Any other upcoming media features/coverage?
MV: Truckin‚Äô Magazine has also agreed to do a full feature article on the truck. If I'm lucky, you might be seeing it on the cover! Slam'd Mag is a new online magazine. They are quickly on the rise and I knew I wanted to be able to have the truck grace the pages of their publication. Be on the lookout for a full feature from Slam'd Mag also!
Is there a story behind the truck being named ‚Äú6Pack‚ÄĚ?
MV: When I started this project, I knew I needed a name that was "short and sweet." I thought about it for a few days. Most of the "catchy" names that I thought of were already taken. I wanted something that I personally haven't heard of. I enlisted the help of a friend, and he mentioned that it should be something involving the word "six" or the number "6" since the truck has six wheels. We both looked around at what we were doing, and there it was‚Ä¶"6Pack".
If you could select any car in the world to customize to your specs, what would it be?
MV: When we start talking about choosing just one car in the world to modify, it's hard to choose. There are several that I can quickly think of that I want to put my own touch on. One in particular that comes to mind though, is a 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396. That was my dad's first car. I would love to be able to get my hands on one in order to build it the same way his was, for him. It was a pretty slick car. It was blue with white dual racing strips with a white vinyl top.
Why did you choose AMSOIL?
MV: I chose AMSOIL products mainly due to the great things I have always heard concerning their products. Obviously, anyone would want only the best when it came to a brand new truck with only 600 miles on the odometer!
Do you have a favorite quote or motto that describes you?
MV: As far as a quote that describes me, I've always liked "You must always push the limits, because if you never fail, you will never succeed." As I was growing up, I had a poster on my bedroom wall that had that quote on it. Sometimes I can be a little conservative but for the most part, I like pushing the limits on everything I do‚Ä¶except when it comes to speeding. I hate paying tickets!

-Day Four: Big Guns at the AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge
|In second place after good dyno run.|
Team captain Ron Stanislawczyk (left) has been building engines since he was a boy. His company, RCS Racing Engines has been building them for over 30 years. "We‚Äôre a pretty big facility. We built over 5,000 race engines in the past thirty years. We do dirt, asphalt, limited classes, crate engine classes. From NHRA Pro Stock, IHRA Pro-Stock, all the way down to the competition classes," said Stanislawczyk.
In the next cell Adney Brown of Performance Crankshaft was setting up. Brown selected Dominator 5W-20 for his 414 cu. in. Chevy engine, which took fourth place the first year he brought it. But the technology has changed significantly since then and he's thinking it may be time to step up. "It‚Äôs always been a good experience, good people, really an enjoyable competition," Brown noted.
|The numbers tell the story.|
Bradley Built Engines is on Dyno 2 getting ready to run, and then we'll break for lunch. Here are a few photos from today's action thus far.

-Day Two: AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge is Movin'
|Team 24: Raceheads|
The AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge is as much about imagination as it is mechanics, physics and chemistry. If this year's crop of contenders brings as much imagination to the challenge as last year's teams, we'll have another week of drama, and perhaps even some laughs. AMSOIL Technical Product Manager Len Groom is on the scene watching the numbers as day two moves through the paces.
According to Hot Rod magazine, "The Engine Masters Challenge was the brainchild of Scott Parkhurst and the Popular Hot Rodding magazine staff way back in the year 2000. The idea was simple: they shoot out three different engines on the same dyno under the same conditions and with a clear set of rules used to establish a single winner. Fourteen years later the rules are far from simple and the entries more diverse, but today‚Äôs AMSOIL-sponsored event has boomed into an industry accepted standard of excellence and innovation that rewards competitors with big cash payouts based on parts contingency."

Pay special attention to the manner in which spacers are being used or prohibited. We saw some very creative configurations last year. Another area of differentiation we'll see is in the oil viscosity selection. All will be using AMSOIL synthetic motor oils, but some have chosen to go with the thinner Dominator 5W-20 oil, whereas others sprang for the thicker 10W-30 or 15W-50.
The competition runs from October 6-10 with 29 builders and 30 engines duking it out for points on the Superflow/DTS dynomometer at the University of Northwestern Ohio‚Äôs High Performance Motorsports center. Stay tuned!
-Day One: AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge
|Buck Hinkle's beautiful 409 Hemi.|
Ed Zinke and team have once again spent a year in preparation for this intense week of competition. Today is day one.
Monday is generally a lighter day of action and this year is no exception, but it's a good day for getting a feel for how things are going to play out. And it has to be a thrill to be in the first set of competitors because the top six are placed in a holding area until a bigger dog pushes you out. At least for the time being each of the first engines are in the running.
Buck Hinkle of Hinkle Performance Engines was slated to run first, followed by Eric Weingartner and his team, Weingartner Racing II. Third on the schedule is Barry Rabotnik of Survival Motorsports.
It's a great experience for every engine builder and a fantastic learning opportunity for the students who have the privilege of contributing to the overall success of the event.
Stay tuned. It's going to be an exciting week in Lima, Ohio.
