Oil's Well That Ends Well
Many of today's off-the-shelf oils often lack ingredients critical to your engine's well-being-namely, the additives that prolong engine parts life, not shorten it. Enter Synergyn Lubricants. On the scene to help alleviate "oil anxiety," Synergyn is a name some folks may recognize from their 20-plus years of experience in producing high-end racing lubricants widely used in the highest levels of motorsports, including NASCAR and NHRA competition.
Recently, Synergyn has ramped up product development by consulting with some of the heavyweights of the industry, such as COMP Cams, Lunati, and TCI Automotive. The result is a new line of engine oils, transmission fluids, gear lubricant, fuel treatments, and specialty additivess to meet the unique needs of street rodders and performance enthusiasts. Top among the list of products to be introduced will be a line of engine oils and additives that specifically address the zinc needs of flat-tappet cams. While we are told that the product line is still receiving the finishing touches, you've got to feel like good things are ahead when you have such established industry players directing the effort. After all, who knows more about the lubrication needs of your truck than the guys who make the parts?!
New Events And New Venues AddedTo Goodguys 2008 Schedule
Two brand-new events and a venue change are just some of the highlights of the 2008 Goodguys Rod & Custom Association event schedule. The two new events include the Goodguys Blue Suede Cruise September 5-7 at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio, and the Goodguys Nostalgia Nationals, October 17-19 at Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Also new for 2008 is a trip to Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pennsylvania.
Goodguys will aim to take the famed Blue Suede Cruise to new heights. The event, celebrating its seventh year in 2008, will be held the weekend following Labor Day and will combine a rod and custom car show with a full-scale vintage drag race on the famed Norwalk quarter-mile dragstrip. The award-winning facility is renowned for its pristine grounds and world-class dragstrip.
The Goodguys Nostalgia Nationals will feature the best of both worlds and include a rod and custom car show and a vintage drag race. Historic Beech Bend Raceway Park combines a quarter-mile dragstrip (complete with covered grandstands) with a full-scale amusement park, campground, and water park.
The Great American Nationals will move from Hershey Park in Hershey, Pennsylvania, to its brand-new location-Pocono Raceway. The legendary triangular-shaped 2 1/2-mile Pocono Raceway will be a spectacular home for the fourth edition of the Great American Nationals. The event will be staged throughout the entire acreage of Pocono Raceway, including portions of the infield, garage area, infield paddock, as well as the grassy infield road course.
Goodguys will hold a total of 24 events in 2008, anchored by the largest and most prestigious event on the calendar-the 11th PPG Nationals, held July 11-13 at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio. For more information, please visit www.good-guys.com.
