Feld Motor Sports® and the International Hot Rod Association® (IHRA®) announced today that AMSOIL INC. has signed a multi-year agreement to be the official and exclusive oil of IHRA, Nitro Jam®, Thunder Jam®, and presenting sponsor of all IHRA Summit Racing Equipment sportsman programs.
The multi-year agreement marks the company’s first partnership with the IHRA. AMSOIL already exhibits a strong presence in the IHRA sportsman community -its products power some of the top racers in the sport today. Partnering with the IHRA and all of its Summit Racing Equipment-backed programs, including the Pro-Am Tour, SuperSeries, Team Finals, Tournament of Champions, Sportsman Spectacular and Junior Dragster programs, gives AMSOIL a great opportunity to showcase its industry-leading synthetic lubricants for the drag racing community.
“The International Hot Rod Association sponsorship helps give us a strong presence in the drag racing and hot-rod community,” said AMSOIL Race Program Manager Jeremy Meyer. “Sportsman racing is the backbone of the IHRA and its racers and fans are some of the most loyal, hard-working people in motorsports. We look forward to working with the IHRA and its extensive lineup of racing programs and providing the racers and fans a high-quality product and great service that they won’t find anywhere else in racing.”
In addition to being the Official Oil of IHRA, Nitro Jam and Thunder Jam, AMSOIL will serve as the presenting sponsor of all IHRA Summit Racing Equipment sportsman programs and will have a strong presence at many of the top IHRA events throughout the year, including the revolutionary Sportsman Spectacular program, individual Team Finals and Pro-Am events and the year-end Summit Racing Equipment Tournament of Champions.
“The rich history of AMSOIL and the company’s eagerness to be more involved in sportsman drag racing makes them a perfect partner for some of the biggest and fastest growing sportsman programs in the sport today,” said IHRA President Aaron Polburn. “AMSOIL has a top-notch track record as a partner in the world of motorsports, including partnerships with the leading off-road racing series and drivers. Now AMSOIL brings that expertise to the world of drag racing and we very much look forward to what this partnership brings to the table.”
AMSOIL partners with top series and racers, including Monster Energy Supercross™ and championship racer Kevin Windham, AMA Arenacross Series™, the TORC Series presented by AMSOIL and 11-time champion Scott Douglas, the AMSOIL Offshore Powerboat Series and perennial champion Bob Teague, the AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series and many more.
