AURORA, IL – September 24, 2014 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Feld Motor Sports® announced today that AMSOIL® will once again be the official and exclusive oil of the Monster Energy Cup taking place at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas on Saturday, October 18.
AMSOIL, an industry leader in synthetic lubrication technology, first began sponsoring motorcycle racing in 1999 and currently gearing up for the 4th year as the official and exclusive oil and lubricant of the widely popular Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship.
“The Monster Energy Cup has turned into one of our biggest annual events. It’s a great showcase for the sport, and it falls nicely between the end of the outdoor season and the start of the Supercross season,” said AMSOIL Race Program Manager Jeremy Meyer. “It has really grown and it’s the perfect way to get supercross fans pumped for the coming season of racing.”
For the second consecutive year, AMSOIL will step in as the name-in-title sponsor for the “AMSOIL Arch.”
The AMSOIL Arch is a 150’ sweeper turn so mammoth that it will extend into the grandstands. “It will be cool to see these guys take the AMSOIL Arch and then come down into the massive sand rollers,” says 2014 Monster Energy Cup track designer and five-time Monster Energy Supercross Champion Ricky Carmichael. “These sections require a lot of technical maneuvering, so the racers definitely need to be prepared for both mentally and physically.”
During the pit party festivities, the current AMSOIL product line will be on-site at the interactive AMSOIL display. AMSOIL specialists will also be on-site showcasing industry-leading AMSOIL lubricants so fans can learn more about the products that top riders like Eli Tomac and Justin Bogle use to land them at the top of the podium.
“Having AMSOIL back for the third year in a row as the official and exclusive oil of the Monster Energy Cup is very exciting,” said Todd Jendro, vice president of two wheel operations, Feld Motor Sports. “AMSOIL’s commitment to the motor sports industry is second to none and we couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome them back this year.”
AMSOIL has a rich heritage that can be traced back more than 40 years to when their products first hit the shelves. Since1972, their synthetic lubricants have stretched the limits of lubrication science and redefined the performance potential of all modern machinery and engines. All AMSOIL products are now distributed worldwide.
The 2014 Monster Energy Cup features an all-new track design inspired by 15-time AMA National Champion Ricky Carmichael. The Carmichael-inspired track design will consist of supercross and motocross obstacles unlike any other racetrack design in the world. The Monster Energy Cup posts a $250,000 purse with the winner walking away with a $100,000 check, and any rider that wins all three Main Events will take home $1 million.
