Joe Gibbs Racing Oil Joins Fun Ford Weekend As Presenting Sponsor in 2012
Kansas City, Mo., March 6, 2012 - Fun Ford Weekend Series officials are proud to announce Joe Gibbs Driven Racing Oils as one of the series’ presenting sponsors for the 2012 season.
The new synthetic oil has been formulated specifically for the needs of high-performance racing engines – a great need for the Fun Ford Weekend participants who make their Blue Oval entries fly down race tracks all over the country.
“The Fun Ford Weekend series is such a unique series because it attracts veteran car show and racing participants as well as a new crop of Blue Oval fanatics,” Fun Ford Weekend President Gabrielle Stevenson said. “Having such a dynamic partner like Joe Gibbs Driven Racing Oils on board is exciting for the series owners and will certainly benefit our participants.”
Joe Gibbs Driven Racing Oils will have dealer representatives at each one of the 2012 Fun Ford Weekend events to meet with participants and answer any questions they may have about their line of racing and high performance oils and lubricants.
“We are very excited about the opportunity to be a part of the Fun Ford Weekend Series in 2012,” said Lake Speed, Jr, general manager of Joe Gibbs Driven Racing Oil. “We love the fact that this series focuses on the grassroots of Ford racers, autocrossers and car show participants. A lot of enthusiasts might not associate Joe Gibbs Driven and our products with Ford vehicles, but we’re looking forward to changing that perception.”
According to Speed, Joe Gibbs Driven Racing Oil is one of the first to create a synthetic oil specifically to meet the high-performance oil requirements of the new generation of modular Ford engines.
“Ford was one of the first companies to have a 5W-20 oil requirement, not just for passenger cars, but their high performance engines as well,” noted Speed. “I grew up building and racing Fords, so personally, I’m excited about the opportunity to bring the company’s FR20 synthetic performance oil to today’s Ford racers and excited about working with the staff and owners of the Fun Ford Weekend series.”
Joe Gibbs Driven Racing Oil’s FR20 is a new 5W-20 synthetic performance motor oil is formulated with Ultra High Viscosity Index base oils designed for high output Ford modular engines. The new FR20 also features a high zinc content to protect aggressive cam profiles and the advanced synthetic formula delivers high temperature protection from viscosity breakdown.
