Valvoline extends its sponsorship as official motor oil of ARCA

Officials from the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) announced today that Valvoline has extended its Official Motor Oil of the ARCA Racing Series partnership through 2018.

"The Valvoline Pro-V racing line has achieved outstanding success over the past two seasons across a variety of racing series," said Jamal Muashsher, Valvoline's vice president of marketing and customer experience. "We are excited to continue our partnership with the ARCA Racing Series, helping teams, drivers and crews reach victory lane."

The announcement, made Saturday at Talladega Superspeedway, includes the news that Valvoline Pro-V Racing 0W30 motor oil will continue to be the exclusive oil for use in the ARCA Ilmor 396 engine package.

The ARCA Ilmor 396 engine, with Valvoline Motor Oil, debuted at the Daytona ARCA 200 in 2015. The Valvoline / ARCA Ilmor 396 combination is undefeated in the 43 events contested since, and has also won every General Tire pole award.

Ilmor engineers utilized the Pro-V Racing 0W30 motor oil extensively during the development, feasibility and durability testing of the ARCA Ilmor 396, including extensive testing on the engine dyno, SpinTron, chassis dyno and on-track.

The extensive testing convinced both Ilmor and ARCA that the Pro-V Racing 0W30 was the right product to help both ARCA and Ilmor achieve the performance standards established.

"Valvoline is an iconic motorsports brand long synonymous with winning and on-track performance," said ARCA president Ron Drager. "Valvoline Pro-V Racing was selected as the exclusive oil for the ARCA Ilmor 396 engine package based on its high quality in testing. Now in its third season and after thousands of miles of on-track competition at 200 mph superspeedways, dirt and paved short tracks and road courses, Valvoline Pro-V Racing has been in the engine of every winning race car for 43 consecutive races."
