How AMSOIL Racing Oil beats out the competition in Motorsports

Motocross Racing Oil

Bob Tasca Sr. used the phrase “win on Sunday, sell on Monday” in the 1960’s.  He said it after he noticed a trend of customers at his dealership when they won a NASCAR race on a Sunday afternoon.  Does that phrase still hold true in 2020?  Probably not.  Many top racing organizations use vehicles that barely resemble today’s production road-going vehicles. But brand loyalty in racing oil still has merit to some consumers shopping for a new car.

AMSOIL is a Winning Brand

If winning in high-level motorsports doesn’t guarantee sales, how can AMSOIL products compete in today’s market?  The answer is simple: make and sell the highest quality synthetic racing oil for consumers. We’ll take a peek at some of AMSOIL’s direct involvement in motorsports and racing.  And we’ll also highlight how customers are winning with AMSOIL Racing Oil.

Multi-Viscosity Racing Oils.   AMSOIL has three different multi-viscosity racing oils that keep performance at its peak:

Each option offers a durable formulation to resist viscosity loss due to mechanical shear.  And each maintains a strong protective oil film on wear surfaces.  All three options are fortified with zinc and phosphorus anti-wear additives.  This provides additional protection against scuffing and wear in severe racing conditions.  Each AMSOIL DOMINATOR Racing Oil version is usable in any event series.  They maximize horsepower potential with a proprietary friction modifier to reduce energy lost to friction.  That keeps maximum horsepower available with cooler engine temperatures.  In other words, these oils promote improved lap times and longer-lasting components.

About AMSOIL Racing Oil

DOMINATOR® 20W-50 Competition Diesel Oil.  Diesels may not be your first thought when you think about drag racing.  But diesel engines can generate a tremendous amount of power and torque with modifications.  All of that power creates heat.  And AMSOIL Dominator 20W-50 Competition Diesel Oil is used by many race teams in the Outlaw Diesel Super Series to keep their engines performing at their best.

DOMINATOR® SAE 60 Racing Oil.  The AMSOIL SAE 60 Racing Oil provides superior performance and maximum protection.  High-performance and racing applications use it.  The singular viscosity better withstands elevated rpm, high temperatures and shock-loading common to racing.  All levels of drag racing, Top Fuel classes, Pro-stock tractor pulls, and diesel racing use it.  DOMINATOR® SAE 60 Racing Oil is formulated specifically with friction modifiers to maximize horsepower and torque.  And it keeps wear to a minimum with anti-wear additives for extra protection.

Briggs & Stratton Synthetic 4T Racing Oil.  A competitive racing series for modified riding lawnmowers formed in 1992.  It was called The United States Lawn Mower Racing Association.  As silly as it sounds, these mowers are strictly built strict competition and their engines are modified for maximum power output.  AMSOIL Briggs & Stratton Synthetic 4T Racing Oil handles the extra heat and high RPMs easily and keeps competitors in the running.

DOMINATOR® Synthetic 2-Stroke Racing Oil.  Riding your snowmobile on the weekends can put some wear on your engine.  But probably not as much as competitors in the Snocross Championship.  Racers push their snow machines to their peak performance.  They rely on AMSOIL DOMINATOR® Synthetic 2-Stroke Racing Oil to keep wear reduced while engines scream at redline.

About Racing Engine Rebuilds

Most racing series utilizes some form of internal combustion engine, and all motorsports require engine rebuilds.  When it’s time to rebuild your four-stroke engine, use AMSOIL Engine Assembly Lube during the assembly process.  It ensures all wear surfaces will have protection at the time of initial start-up.  The assembly lube also makes it easier to turn over the crankshaft and camshafts to measure correct timing of components.  Assembly lube dissolves in oil to eliminate oil port clogging and deposit formation.  If you have to store an engine before initial break-in, the lube also inhibits rust and corrosion.

The best part of an engine rebuild is that initial start-up.  All of your hard work finally roars to life and is ready for break-in cycles.  AMSOIL Break-In Oil (SAE 30) is perfect for protecting your new engine for the first few heat cycles.  It offers maximum protection while bearings break in and piston rings seat to the freshly honed cylinder walls.

Racing Oil Compatibility

Each AMSOIL DOMINATOR Synthetic Racing Oil is compatible with leaded and unleaded gasoline, diesel, alcohol, nitromethane and nitrous oxide fuels.  It should be acceptable lubrication in all organizations and levels of motorsports across the United States and around the world.  AMSOIL also manufactures Ea® Racing Air Filters (EAAR) that are specially designed for racing competitors and enthusiasts who need maximum air flow and protection to stay at the front of the pack.

When competing, the vehicle owner is responsible for determining an appropriate oil service interval.  DOMINATOR Racing Oil is not intended for long-term use in passenger cars/light trucks.  You may need to frequently change the oil based on your type of racing, your fuel type, and length of each event.

Keeping your racing engines in great shape and performing at their peak is often a challenge.  Oil breakdown can happen when engines are pushed to their extreme performance.  The best prevention can keep your equipment running smooth and keep your engines out of the repair shop.  Adding AMSOIL products from Buy Great Oil is also the best way to reduce your maintenance for extra piece of mind.
