Team AMSOIL Update

Summer is in full swing, race fans! Which means Team AMSOIL is busy, busy, busy. Let me take a moment from taking in all the exhaust fumes and evaluating my farmer’s tan to let you know what we’ve been up to and where we’re headed.

On the Track

AMSOIL GNCC

AMSOIL GNCC wrapped up racing for the summer June 6-7 in Dunkard, Pa., a new stop on the circuit. #TeamAMSOIL members Chris Borich and Team Babbitt’s Josh Strang found themselves atop the podium heading into the summer break.

Be sure to catch our recap from the Snowshoe GNCC here.

Swap Moto at Milestone

The second of three AMSOIL Swap Moto Race Series kicked off this past weekend at Milestone MX Park. The Terra Firma Series will run through August. Racers who compete in this mini series are eligible to win AMSOIL products and gift certificates as part of our partnership with the entire series.

Take a trip around the Expert track below.

In the Staging Area

Sprint Week

Eight races, 10 nights. The USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Championship expands to its largest schedule for its 32nd running this year. Racing starts this Thursday in Gas City, Ind. and runs through Saturday in Haubstadt, Ind. The drivers take Monday and Tuesday off to gas up for the remaining stretch.

We followed along last year with Chad Boesplug during Sprint Week. Check out the video below.

Expedition Colorado

Veteran off-road racers (and brothers) Brad and Roger Lovell are at it again. This year, Expedition Colorado starts near Grand Junction, Colo. and heads toward Moab, Utah. The route then heads southeast through the San Juan Mountains, ending in Lake City, Colo.

Check out all the scenery from last year’s trip below.

As always, stay up to date on all the AMSOIL action via FacebookTwitter and Instagram.

We’ll see you at the races!

Can a 1943 Jeep survive this?

Remember when we asked that question? It’s been almost a year since the first AMSOIL Expedition Colorado, which sent veteran off-road racers Brad and Roger Lovell on a 550-mile trek from Colorado Springs, Colo. to Moab, Utah. Here’s a recap in case you missed it:

Well, the Lovells are back at it. But this time they’re retracing their steps from Moab back to Colorado Springs. And this time they’re inviting you to join them. Well, kind of.

Last year’s expedition drew an overwhelming response from viewers. As a way to further bring you along for the ride, the Lovells will be planting prizes from their sponsors along this year’s 615-mile course. After their trip is completed they will release a GPS map with the coordinates of all of the geocache locations.

Prizes include…

  • Two sets of BFGoodrich tires
  • A WARN Zeon winch
  • A $500 gift certificate from yours truly (AMSOIL INC.)
  • A pair of $250 Rugged Radios gift certificates
  • An ARB 4×4 Accessories recovery kit

Pack your GPS and a lunch. You might also need a tent and a raincoat because finding the prizes won’t be easy. Once a prize is collected, the recipient must post a picture on either Facebook or Instagram using #expeditioncolorado to let others know the prize is claimed.

Keep your eyes on the AMSOIL Community website Aug. 3 for the release of the route with coordinates of the prize locations. Until then, stay up to date on all the planning for AMSOIL Expedition Colorado on Facebook. To see some of the AMSOIL products the Lovell’s use in their off-road vehicles, go here.

Finally, be sure to sign up for AMSOIL Signature Series videos sent to your inbox. Subscribers will get the video documenting this year’s expedition before it’s made public.
