quote:How does this work against them?
AMSOIL does have a presence in NASCAR, but we aren't a sponsor of a team or NASCAR. That works against us. We have looked into many different avenues of involvement and spoken with several teams. When the right opportunity comes up we will move ahead. I suspect we'll be in NASCAR more sooner than later. Thanks ~ John Schuldt Racing Manager

When I start street racing every second of every day and completely re-building my daily-driver engine every 500 miles, then I'll care. Just because an oil is used in racing applications such as this doesn't mean it makes a great oil for on-road applications....

I'm hoping to get a C5/C6 in the next few years and I would have no problem putting what NASCAR uses in that car. And as I understand it, Mobil 1 R, Redline and other special oils are found in those engines. 500 laps of 8-9k rpms with 800hp engines is a nice testament of how durable these oils are. That is why Mobil 1 R should be considered by many who race, regardless of how thin it is. Sump capacities are much higher and oil coolers are present but I'm sure these engine builders strive for the lowest engine wear possible. [ April 16, 2004, 08:35 PM: Message edited by: buster ]
