Team AMSOIL Offshore was invited by the American Power Boat Association (APBA) to compete in the offshore heat races conducted in conjunction with the 100th running of the Detroit Gold Cup Unlimited Hydroplane Race sponsored by Chrysler Jeep Superstores. The three day event started with testing on Friday. There were three exciting heat races on Saturday and two final heats on Sunday, in front of thousands of fans.

Team AMSOIL put on a great show battling with the other offshore catamarans on the tight 2 ½ mile, pear-shaped course. The tightest turn was in front of the grandstands and gave the fans a close look at some deck to deck racing.

AMSOIL Dealers were provided a premium display booth area that was staffed by Bill & Kathy Bernethy, Scot & Delores Brauer, and Berry Mugridge. The AMSOIL dealers were busy all day on Saturday and Sunday promoting products and providing technical information while the AMSOIL Offshore race boat was creating excitement.

At the awards, Team AMSOIL was presented with the perpetual Silver Cup where Bob Teague’s and Paul Whittier’s names will be added to the long list of previous recipients.

Next stop is the annual Saint Clair Offshore race on August 1st and 2nd. This will be a grand event with the merging of the OSS and OPA racing organizations. Team AMSOIL will have a product booth in its dry pit location staffed by AMSOIL Dealers at this event. The city is expecting to draw nearly 100,000 spectators this year.

Team AMSOIL captured virtually every title possible in the Cat Lite Class during the 2008 racing season, which would not have been possible without the continued support of AMSOIL Inc. The AMSOIL Dominator Racing Oil continues to be proven as the best choice for the Mercury Racing 525 EFI engines. The Team has also proven that the absolute best oil for a Mercury dry-sump VISSM drive is AMSOIL “MCF.” After two years of racing, Team AMSOIL’s VISSM drives are still in new condition. The company’s great sponsorship package, dedicated racing department team and superior lubricants all make it possible for Team AMSOIL Offshore Racing to achieve success! Teague Custom Marine is an authorized AMSOIL dealer and offers the complete line of high performance lubricants in its store and for purchase over the phone. United We Race!
