Default Team Amsoil Offshore #77 Wins In Ocean City, Md

Team AMSOIL attended the OPA season opener in Ocean City, Maryland which is the first race of the Geico Triple Crown series. Saturday testing required several setup changes including switching gear ratios to accommodate the rough conditions of the Atlantic Ocean.

After some severe weather, the conditions on Sunday were even rougher, presenting challenging conditions for the offshore teams. Team AMSOIL started in the first start of the main event with the other top class catamarans. Team AMSOIL’s arch rival in the Northeast, Motley Crew, was unable to make the start, which enabled Team AMSOIL to run unchallenged in the Super Cat Lite class. Team AMSOIL ran hard anyway, finishing fifth overall against the higher class Turbine powered, Extreme, and Super Cat 750 boats.

During the race, the severe sea conditions provided for a lot of super air time. Team AMSOIL’s Skater performed flawlessly, enduring the brutal conditions. This was a great run to prepare for the upcoming attempt to beat our own endurance record from Miami to Bimini and back, which will be attempted on June 12th off Sunny Isles Beach, Florida.

After the Sunny Isles record run and race, Team AMSOIL will be headed to Sarasota, Florida to compete in the annually well attended race on the 4th of July weekend.

The AMSOIL Dominator Racing Oil continues to be proven as the best choice for the Mercury Racing 525 EFI engines. Oil tests conducted after races continue to indicate minimal engine wear. This oil allowed Team AMSOIL to log over 4000 racing miles on its Mercury Racing engines last year with not one engine problem. 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.

Team AMSOIL captured virtually every title possible in the Cat Lite Class during the 2008 racing season. The Team is the current OPA Cat Lite High Points Champion, OSS National and High Points Cat Lite Champion, and SBI Super Cat World Champion. Team AMSOIL is also the holder of the OSS World Endurance record for Miami to Bimini and back, and captured the POPRA World Kilo Record in its class with an official average speed of 131.981mph.

The AMSOIL Offshore Race Team is extremely proud to have the continued support of AMSOIL Inc. 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 online. United We Race!
