AMSOIL® Signs on as Official and Exclusive Oil of the 2012 Monster Energy Cup
AURORA, Ill. (September 13, 2012) – Feld Motor Sports® announced today that AMSOIL®, based in Superior, Wis., signed on to be the official and exclusive oil of the 2012 Monster Energy Cup, which takes place at Sam Boyd Stadium on Saturday, October 20.
The 2012 Monster Energy Cup marks AMSOIL's first year as the official oil of the lucrative event, which posts a purse of $1 million. AMSOIL, an industry leader in synthetic lubrication technology, first began sponsoring motorcycle racing in 1999 and currently serves as the official and exclusive oil of the widely popular Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, and the AMA Arenacross Series.
“Partnering up with the Monster Energy Cup is a great opportunity for AMSOIL,” said AMSOIL Race Program Manager Jeremy Meyer. “It is a high-level production and perfect tie-in to our on-going partnerships with Feld Motor Sports in both supercross and arenacross.”
In addition to signing on as the official and exclusive oil of the Monster Energy Cup, AMSOIL steps in as the name-in-title sponsor for the “AMSOIL Mechanics Area”, a highly visible track feature that allows mechanics to communicate with riders during each lap.
During the pit party festivities, AMSOIL specialists will be on-hand showcasing their industry-leading lubricants and interactive displays to the thousands of fans. AMSOIL's current product line will also be featured during the live SPEED TV broadcast of the Monster Energy Cup.
“We are excited to welcome AMSOIL as the official and exclusive oil partner of the Monster Energy Cup,” said Todd Jendro, vice president of two-wheel operations, Feld Motor Sports. “Their emerging commitment to world of motorcycle racing continues to evolve and we are honored to have them part of this prestigious event.”
AMSOIL's rich heritage can be traced back nearly 40 years ago when their products first hit the shelves. Since then, 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 2012 Monster Energy Cup features an all-new track design inspired by five-time Supercross Class Champion Ricky Carmichael. The Carmichael-inspired track design will consist of supercross and motocross obstacles unlike any other racetrack design in the world. More than 200' of the track will be built into the grandstands, and the riders exit the stadium and race through the Monster Energy Fan Zone outside of the stadium and through the pit area before they catapult back into the stadium. 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.
