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 UpdatesWhat's Your Take On Driverless Cars?
A Harris Poll showed that 88 percent of U.S. adults would be worried riding in a driverless car. Nearly 80 percent would worry about equipment failure of some kind, from brakes to sensors. And then there are the liability issues. If your car is driving itself and hits a dog or a child, is it the automaker's fault or yours?
Then there are those who fear a hacker will break into their computer system and either steal the car or maliciously drive it off the road.
The fears are many, and even if 95% of what we worry about never happens, it's going to be a hurdle for those who will be pushing for widespread acceptance. Then again, maybe the up-and-coming generation is going to have a different attitude here, living a life surrounded with technology from cradle-to-grave.
One thing for sure, cars will continue to have maintenance needs, one of these being the need for lubricants to protect engines and drivetrain components. Whatever you drive, make sure you take care of yours.

-Free Oil Change Reminder Service
Historically, when motorists get their oil changed the lube shop places a sticker on the windshield with information regarding when to come back to have it changed again. If you change your own oil, it may be helpful to discover that we have a reminder service that can send you an email to let you know it's time for an oil change.
A special feature of this reminder email is that you can set it for whatever parameters you want within in your comfort zone. Even though the 3,000 mile oil change has been long demonstrated to be a myth, many people are uncomfortable going further because "Pa always changed his oil at 3,000 miles and that's how I was taught."
Times have changed though. Most auto manufacturers have significantly longer oil change intervals in their owners' manuals. According to the article Stop Changing Your Oil! at Edmunds.com the shortest oil change interval that a few automakers are recommending is 5,000 miles. Nearly half of today's 34 automakers now use oil monitoring systems to let people know when to change their oil, including all three U.S. manufacturers.
One thing you want to do is learn how to check all your fluid levels periodically, including oil. And to set up that reinder service, whether for three months, six months or one year, visit us at AMSOIL.com. You'll find the Free Oil Change Reminder Email link on the right of your screen just below the Why AMSOIL? link.
-Ellis Reflects On Parker 425 and Looks Toward Baja
A few weeks ago we covered Randy Ellis as he prepared for the Parker 425 Best in the Desert event in Parker, Ariz. This race is an unrelenting journey through 425 miles of desert conditions that can take out even the mightiest of rigs. Its demanding terrain leaves many racers facing flat tires, broken parts and bruised egos as it methodically eliminates competitors along the entire course.
Ellis and his team started strong but ran into an obstacle (literally) almost 300 miles in. They went out in spectacular fashion after a valiant effort, but the Parker 425 had claimed another casualty. Read below for a recap of how it all went down in Ellis’ own words.
Off the line at 8:30 a.m. and into the sun for the first 27 miles of dust with very limited sight. We made good time and passed a few cars but kept a reserved pace, it was going to be a long race. We had moved up to 12th on the first lap of 145 miles and pulled into our scheduled pit stop for fuel. The team made a very fast fill and check of the car, and we did not lose any position. About 8 miles out from the pit an unlimited car hit us hard and pushed us off course. Flat tire, but Awesome Burmer changed it fast.
Now on our second lap we could tell the course was getting rougher, but we pushed a little harder and moved up a few more spots. Towards the end of the second lap in 6th position, about 290 miles in, we had a problem. We flew over a road crossing and landed pretty hard and a little sideways, straightened the car up and went to grab 5th gear at about 85 mph. That’s when it happened; the steering became unattached from the rack and we kicked a little sideways, straight for a large steel power pole. It was full brakes and hold on, BAM! We hit it with the right front tire. The pole spun us around and we came to a stop in a cloud of dust. Wow, we were OK! Two guys ran up to us and were so excited, saying “DUDE THAT WAS FREAKING AWESOME!!! ARE YOU ALRIGHT?!!!” We both answered yes.
That was the end of the race for us. Broken spindle, steering rack and bulkhead torn off, upper and lower control arms bent, mounts at the chassis bent and numerous other things. All said and done, we ended up 19th in class with a good amount of points to carry forward into the season.
The 2014 Score Baja 1000 will start in Ensanada and end in La Paz, about 1130 miles for 2014. The race is November 12th-16th. "This will take a lot of planning and logistics, we are starting this procedure now," he added. We'll keep you posted.
