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 UpdatesJoe Carroll Talks About Engine Building and AMSOIL
Many of the builders here are modest, and highly respected, among them Joe Carroll of Stonewall, Louisiana. According to competition director Wes Roberson he's a very astute builder. "He does very detailed work and leaves very little to chance."
After pulling some strong numbers we took a few minutes to learn more about his passions.
Joe Carroll: I used to work at an engine shop years ago, and it‚Äôs turned into a hobby. I‚Äôm a lineman, that‚Äôs how I make my living. If I had to build engines for a living then I‚Äôd probably be living in a cardboard box somewhere. It‚Äôs a hobby, it‚Äôs kind of a passion that me and some friends of ours do.
How did you get into Engine Masters?
JC: We began coming to Engine Masters when a friend of mine came in 2006 and we went to NYC and fell in love with the idea and the people around. It‚Äôs kind of turned into a family reunion every year so we just enjoy coming up here visiting, bringing a piece and see how we stand up against everybody.
Have you been coming every year?
JC: We‚Äôve come every year since 2006. We came with our own piece in 2007 and have been here ever since.
Your take on AMSOIL?
JC: We love the Break-In Oil. We tried some before in another brand and the motor would kind of huff for a while when we did a Ford years ago. When we got on the AMSOIL, you‚Äôll see a little almost steam come out of the breather before we pull. Then everything seals up and you can tell the numbers pick up on the dyno. That was our dead giveaway on it. The fuel numbers went up so that was a big plus for us. We left it in for I think 15 pulls and we left it in through the whole time. Then we came here and we dropped it and put the real deal in and we saw a little bit more horsepower, so that was a little more of a bonus for us this year.
Have you used AMSOIL in the past?
We‚Äôve used AMSOIL in the past, and we‚Äôve now gone to running it in our dirt bikes. We use the 2-stroke oil, too. It burns real clean so we‚Äôve been impressed with everything that they‚Äôve had. We‚Äôve had to kind of shop around for it but we end up getting it and that‚Äôs all we‚Äôve been running anymore.

As of 2:00 p.m. Joe Carroll is still in the hunt.

-Why is there a time limit ‚Äď in addition to a mileage limit ‚Äď on motor oil?
Even when you‚Äôre not driving, chemical changes take place within motor oil that lead to degradation and the need for an oil change. Oxidation is a prime culprit. The interaction between oxygen molecules and motor oil molecules naturally leads to chemical breakdown. Just as oxygen causes a cut apple to brown or exposed metal to rust, it breaks down base oils and reduces motor oil‚Äôs effectiveness. Although synthetic base-oil molecules are naturally much more resistant to oxidation than conventional base-oil molecules, they eventually succumb to oxidation‚Äôs attack. Oxidation can lead to increased oil viscosity, which negatively affects energy efficiency. It also causes the formation of harmful deposits and sludge.
Your vehicles are also subjected to temperature swings, even when not in use. Temperature swings cause condensation to form inside the engine, leading to water contamination. Not driving for extended periods ‚Äď or taking short trips that don‚Äôt allow the engine to fully warm up ‚Äď allows water to remain in the oil rather than evaporating and exiting through the tailpipe. Water contributes to engine corrosion.
When you do drive, contaminants form as natural byproducts of combustion. Acids lead to sludge formation and corrosion, and those acids and other contaminants continue to affect chemical changes in the oil, even while not driving.

-SEMA Feature of the Week: David Gutierrez DARK300
Gutierrez is now preparing DARK300 for the SEMA Show as a feature vehicle for XIX Wheels, and approached AMSOIL to ensure his engine performs as well as the rest of his ride looks. We caught up with Gutierrez to get an idea of where it all began, and what it‚Äôs like to own a ride that‚Äôs about to make its Hollywood debut.
Is this your first project/show vehicle?
What drew you to the Chrysler 300 model?
When Chrysler first presented the 300 to the public I was immediately drawn to the look of the car. It seems to me to have the perfect balance of luxury and with a look of meanness to it. It is a very comfortable car to drive, whether it‚Äôs just down the street or road trip to Las Vegas!
Not very many people know that this was actually an option that Chrysler offered for the 2007 and 2008 300‚Äôs. Chrysler wanted to get their foot in the door in the livery service market. To do this they needed to compete with Lincoln Town Cars and the BMW 7 series. The long wheel base gives a total of 46.2 inches of rear seat leg room, 10.2 cubic feet of additional interior space, wider rear door openings for easy entrance & exit and many other added optional features that the regular 300 doesn‚Äôt offer.
What is it about this vehicle that makes it ‚Äėyou‚Äô?
There are so many things that I've done to the car to add my own personal touch. One of the biggest I would say is my ‚ÄėDay of the Dead‚Äô girl logo. It has been custom etched into the front emblem, the trunk wing, the door sills and many other locations on the car. It follows the ‚Äėdark' theme that the car has, not necessarily evil but certainly leaning toward the ominous.
Is this your first time attending the SEMA show?
2014 has been a good year for taking home car show awards and trophies. How many are you up to, and which one means the most to you?
At a quick glance I have been awarded over 20 trophies, plaques or certificates. One of the ones that stand out to me was from this year‚Äôs Extreme Autofest in Anaheim. The competition was very steep that day, there were many very nice looking cars and for them to award me a trophy that day was an amazing experience.
Can you tell us about the DARK300‚Äôs film debut?
My DARK300 will be in the Magnet Films release of the ABC‚Äôs of Death 2 on October 31st. It is a small part, but again for the director to personally ask for my car to be in the film is such a great feeling.
Hmmm, there are so many choices!! I think a 1931 Ford Model A would be something that I would like to work on. I would make it a Rat Rod but with my own personal touches.
Why did you choose AMSOIL? Any favorite AMSOIL product?
My whole family has been using AMSOIL products in all of our cars for as long as I can remember. I‚Äôve never heard any complaints from them about any AMSOIL products. AMSOIL‚Äôs 100% synthetic oil has always worked great!
Do you have a favorite quote or motto that describes you?
I‚Äôd rather be looked at as the guy who‚Äôd try anything, rather than the guy who did nothing.
