Dear, AMSOIL

Just a quick note to tell you how your AMSOIL Series 2000 20W-50 Racing Oil is working in my drag boat.

In 1989, I was racing a 1500 horsepower, 495 cubic inch, blown Chevrolet motor in my drag boat. I had been using another manufacturer's 20W-50 racing oil. By switching to the AMSOIL 20W-50 Racing Oil, I immediately cut off an additional 0.2 seconds from my elapsed time. This was a consistent 0.2 seconds decrease.

In late 1994, after a serious crash, I purchased another boat with a blown 565 cubic inch Aries Hemi, burning methanol for fuel. I continued to use the AMSOIL Synthetic Racing Oil.

Because of the AMSOIL Synthetic Racing Oil, I have not had a lubrication-related engine failure since 1989.

Today, this boat is capable of running 200 MPH in 6.00 seconds over the quarter mile. June 2000 I filled the motor with AMSOIL Series 2000 20W-50 Racing Oil. I am still using the same oil this year. I check the screen in the Osberg oil filter after qualifying each weekend. Without any metal residue onscreen, I merely clean and reinstall the screen in the filter assembly. About every 5 weekends, I will drain the oil and let the alcohol evaporate, and then run it through a bypass filter before I reinstall it back onto the motor.

Because of the AMSOIL Synthetic Racing Oil, I have not had a lubrication-related engine failure since 1989. This is remarkable, considering this Aries Blown Alcohol Hemi motor is capable of producing 3,000 horsepower.

With the help of your superior protection, this boat has been Central States Drag Boat Association High Point champion for the last 6 years and National Drag Boat Association High Point Champion in 1999.

Thank You!

Sincerely,
Jim Richards
