Yesterday we recapped the AMSOIL product news and events that took place in the first half of the year. Let’s continue our walk down memory lane with the conclusion of the 2015 AMSOIL Year in Review. From summertime road trips to the grand SEMA Show, AMSOIL was in all corners of the engine-driven industry right along with our fellow enthusiasts.
The 2015 Top Truck Challenge, one of the most grueling off-roading events in the nation, commenced in Hollister Hills, Calif. After a week of grueling challenges meant to test the mettle of these mighty trucks, Dan Osterhout of Edmonton, AB secured the win in his 1970 GMC Jimmy.
The AMSOIL Street Rodder Road Tour also kicked off in June, celebrating its 20th Anniversary with one of the most exciting tour schedules ever. Jerry Dixey led participants across the country in a sweet 1961 Ford Sunliner that turned heads and got people talking everywhere they went.
With summer officially underway, AMSOIL saw lots of spectators and enthusiasts at the Car Craft Summer Nationals. This long-time event drew thousands of street machines to its new home in Milwaukee, Wisc. for a weekend of sight-seeing and automotive nostalgia. AMSOIL was there as the Official Oil with some impressive automotive eye candy prominently placed in our booth.
AMSOIL attended the Chrysler Nationals as the Official Oil of Carlisle Events. The AMSOIL booth featured the 2015 Dodge Challenger ‘Rapture Challenger’ that had been previously unveiled at the 2014 SEMA Show. The Chrysler Nationals was just one of several Carlisle Events that AMSOIL attended over the summer, and we’ll be back in 2016.
AMSOIL expanded the European Car Formula line to include 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil for European gasoline and diesel engines.
AMSOIL hit the 75th Anniversary of the famed Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, once again as the Official Oil. Nearly one-million bikers descended on Sturgis, SD for the ultimate bike rally.
The inaugural 742 Marketing Race.Wars LA event took place at the legendary Irwindale Speedway in Los Angeles, Calif. AMSOIL headlined as title sponsor and Official Oil, which drew drag racing and show car enthusiasts out in droves for a chance to race at this historic speedway before its closure later in the year.
The AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge Presented by Hot Rod Magazine kicked off at the University of Northwestern Ohio in Lima. Some of the nation’s top engine-building talent showed up to compete in a battle of horsepower and performance. Despite some big format changes and even a little bit of fire-drama, the event proved to be another success with five winners in various engine classes.
November is one of our favorite months here at AMSOIL, thanks to the SEMA Show that lends a huge platform to showcase our company and products to industry leaders. 2015 saw our most impressive booth display yet, along with our biggest batch of entries into the New Product Showcase. There were hot tuners on display in the AMSOIL booth, but Gordon Tronson’s Equadoline stole the show with his unique four-engine pick-up that stopped attendees in their tracks all week.
The AMSOIL Devoted to Protection sweepstakes also launched at SEMA, which will see one lucky winner drive off in a fully modified 1972 Ford Mustang Mach 1 next fall. If you haven’t already, make sure to submit your entry and it could be yours.
AMSOIL introduces new Synthetic Air Tool Oil for pneumatic equipment commonly used by mechanics and craftsmen.
