SUPERIOR, Wis. — AMSOIL Inc. is collaborating with Menzies Motorsports to reinforce its focus on off-road racing.
The partnership will be introduced coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the Baja 500, which starts June 2 in Baja California Peninsula, Mexico.
Bryce Menzies and his new co-driver, five-time Dakar Rally winner Cyril Despres, will race in a Trophy Truck prepared by Mr. Menzies on the tracks around Baja.
In addition, Menzies will use AMSOIL products in other events, including in the desert, on short-course tracks at the Crandon International Raceway.
Kevin Kastner, AMSOIL racing and events manager, said the renewed relationship "is part of our strategy to focus on teams, events and racers who demonstrate the quality of our synthetic lubricants while generating the most excitement for our fans, customers and Dealers."
Mr. Menzies said he's excited to reunite with AMSOIL.
"They were one of my first partners when we were racing the TORC Series, and I've always wanted to work with them again," he said. "Their products are the best on the market and definitely give us an added performance factor."
AMSOIL supported Menzies Motorsports in 2011 when the team won the TORC PRO 2wd class championship as well as its first Baja 500 championship. The team has continued to rely on AMSOIL synthetic lubricants since then.
