AMSOIL Will Be Official Oil Of AMA Pro Racing, Presenting Sponsor Of Daytona SportBike Class

The First in Synthetics, AMSOIL Continues Nearly Four Decades of Performance with AMA Pro

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 4, 2009) - AMSOIL has reached an agreement with AMA Pro Road Racing that will see one of the world's leading synthetic oil brands expand their presence in the motorsports community as the Official Oil of AMA Pro Road Racing and the presenting partner of the AMA Pro Daytona SportBike class.

Based in Wisconsin, AMSOIL introduced the world's first API-qualified synthetic motor oil in 1972. It has since developed an expansive line of high-quality synthetic lubricants, fuel additives and filtration products that continue to push the boundaries of lubrication science and redefine the performance possibilities of modern machinery and engines. AMSOIL offers products that deliver the same level of performance and protection to racers on the track and fans in the stands.

"It has been 36 years since AMSOIL brought the benefits of synthetic lubricants from jet engines to internal combustion engines, and we look forward to continuing this history of impressive performance in AMA Pro Daytona SportBike presented by AMSOIL," said Jeremy Meyer, Race Program Manager for AMSOIL, INC. "The new AMA Pro Daytona SportBike class should offer some of the most competitive motorcycle road racing ever seen in the United States and we are honored to be one of the high performance components in the new AMA Pro Road Racing."

A new class for 2009, AMA Pro Daytona SportBike presented by AMSOIL is a battleground between quick-handling 600cc motorcycles and a variety of big-bore bikes from Buell, Aprilia and Ducati. Daytona SportBikes are race-tuned descendants of some of today's top high-performance production motorcycles and the class promises to deliver some of AMA Pro Road Racing's best and most competitive racing.

"AMA Pro Daytona SportBike presented by AMSOIL is going to co-headline AMA Pro Road Racing and it is only because of the support of fine partners such as AMSOIL," said AMA Pro Racing President Roger Edmondson. "Along with the AMA Pro American Superbike class, the Daytona SportBike division will provide a perfect partnership showcase for companies such as AMSOIL and we are honored to have them on board."
