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 UpdatesBringing It All Back Home: AMSOIL Street Rodder Road Tour Visits Youngstown
With Jerry on the road the heavy lifting was left for Mary Ann who recruited her friend Dawn Damron. It was a beautiful drive that included a little excursion through Amish country. When they arrived at suppertime, even Jerryâ€™s mother Barbara Dixey and brother Jack joined in the festivities which included a great meal of sloppy joes, vegetarian chili and tasty desserts. Jerry gave everyone a tour of his garages, toy boxes and house. The road warriors had a chance to see that Jerry not only enjoys talking about cars, heâ€™s also a collector, albeit on a slightly smaller scale than some of the incredible collections heâ€™s had the privilege of sharing over the years in other places and spaces.
-Some Inventions Don't Always Pan Out As Anticipated
"The future isn't what it used to be." ~ Arthur C. Clarke
Popular Mechanics magazine is now more than 110 years old. The publication was launched in 1902 when the 20th Century was emerging as the most remarkable era in human history. Idealism ran rampant and creative minds conceived the most amazing designs.
Articles about what the future would be like have been a recurring feature of this forward-looking magazine. And now, with more than a century of material to sift through, the editors of Popular Mechanics have published a book featuring many of these contraptions and ideas in a book titled The Wonderful Future That Never Was.
There were people who thought we'd live in houses with furniture you cleaned with a hose. Or that our cars would fly (1928, 1943) or ride about on a cushion of air as Jeanne Dixon predicted in 1966. One of the stories is about Louis Brennan's monorail car that would ride atop a cable and stay balanced by means of gyroscopes.
Many stories were written about what cities of the future would look like, from taller skyscrapers to underground cities built layer upon layer. Hopefully you don't mind a house with no windows or landscapes to manicure. As for food, what do you think about the idea of eating synthetic food made from coal? It was proposed and written about. Yum!
The good part about the world of inventors is that they often continue to dream in spite of all odds. How the internet came to pass, or microprocessors and the variety of expressions of invention that we take for granted, is a mystery we seldom think deeply about. Fortunately we don't have to understand organic synthesis or compression ratios to drive a car to the grocery store.
For the fun of it, here's an invention that may never come to pass, but you'll enjoy the inventor's enthusiasm for his product, the Chrysler Turbo Encabulator.
On the other hand, some dreams really do come true. You can read about the AMSOIL story here.
-How Fast Does A Model T Go?
There are car collectors who still love their Model Ts though. One of our local car clubs here in Superior, WI did 120 miles of cruising this weekend, and a good time was had by all.
Not only have the colors of cars changed dramatically over the years, the speed at which they travel has likewise changed. It takes a lot less time to drive from New York to Boston than it did 100 years ago.
Not everyone has the same need for speed, but it's comforting to know you've got it when you need it. Here's a trivia factoid you may find interesting: When railroads began to carry passengers, there were great debates about their safety because some scientists proposed that if a train went faster than 25 miles per hour it would suck the air out of everyone's lungs and they would die.
In the event that you really were interested in knowing how fast the old Model T Fords went, you can Google it and it might lead you to a forum where Model T owners are discussing this very thing.
If you're wondering which motor oil to use for your Model T, you'll find the answer to that question somewhere else. In the event that you have a vehicle of more recent vintage, the best place to find the correct viscosity is the lookup guide on our home page of AMSOIL.com. Check it out.
-We Love Our Trucks
The piece begins by noting, "The best-selling American car isn't a car at all. It's a pickup truck." He then goes on to provide a brief history of how pickup trucks came to have such an appeal. In the piece Jeanes notes that pickup trucks may at one time have been all about utility, but over time design and style came to have more influence so that by the late nineties only 14% of all pickup-truck owners listed "use in line of business" as their main purpose in owning such a vehicle.
Whether you're hauling hay, or towing a boat to the lake, pickups are practical. And in rural regions with deep snow, you'll get out of a drift more easily than with a low-slung sports car.
If you love your truck, make sure you take care of her. With AMSOIL.

-It's All About Power: 2014 AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge Just Around The Corner
The AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge is an engine builders dyno competition that was spawned by Popular Hot Rodding magazine and resulted in the creation of Engine Masters Magazine, a quarterly publication that covers all the action and insights from this event. The competition takes place at the dyno facilities of the University of Northwestern Ohio (UNOH), which hosts the event. In addition to the magazine staff, UNOH gives 40 students a chance to rub shoulders with some of the best performance engine builders in the country. The students, two teams of twenty serving morning and afternoon shifts, help with dyno setups and engine teardowns under the able guidance of their instructors. AMSOIL is title sponsor and exclusive oil.
This year's AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge presented by HOT ROD magazine is just a month away. One thing a competition like this does is provide builders an opportunity to showcase their skills, especially with regard to innovation. Because of it's connections to the media, and entire industry can zoom in and "watch over our shoulders" so to speak.
If you're not familiar with the ins and outs of a dyno challenge with many of the continents leading builders, then tune in here and listen to Master of Ceremonies Clarence Barnes preview last year's event.
In about thirty days we'll be on location in Lima, Ohio for the 2014 AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge
