Red Line Synthetic Oil Signs as Official Oil Sponsor to ChumpCar World Series

Red Line Offers Contingency to Grassroots Racing Series

(Morgan Hill, CA - 17 December 2012) - The ChumpCar World Series announced today that Red Line Synthetic Oil Corp. is a new Series Sponsor and the official oil for ChumpCar's 2013 season. Red Line Oil is offering over $10,000 dollars in contingency awards for ChumpCar World Series race teams who are competing in the series using Red Line products.

The ChumpCar World Series is the fastest-growing segment in North American motorsports, featuring over sixty 7- to 36-hour long endurance road races for amateur, semi-pro and professional race teams in the US, Canada and Mexico. Emphasizing inexpensive racing and close competition, the series holds events annually at some of North America's greatest race tracks, including Daytona International Speedway, Mosport-Canadian Tire Raceway, Texas Motor Speedway, Watkins Glen, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Road Atlanta, Sonoma-Sears Point, Sebring and Road America.

"ChumpCar is all about our customers," states Red Line Oil VP/COO, Cameron Evans. "Red Line produces a broad line of products that is made for both the street and the track, and what better way to prove the effectiveness of our products than to have them used by street cars under extreme racing conditions."

John Condren, ChumpCar's CEO added, "Red Line Oil is the best possible engine oil for what our competitors put their cars through - 14, 18 and 24-hour endurance races using street-stock engines and transmissions - making this the most demanding form of motorsports. This is where Red Line Oil out-performs the rest."

And, Red Line Oil is going well-beyond traditional series sponsorship, with the company building and campaigning two cars in the ChumpCar series.

Working with other Red Line Oil professional racing teams, Red Line Oil has joined forces with RealTime Racing who, after capturing their 10th SCCA Pirelli World Challenge title with their race-prepared Acura, was excited to build a car and compete in ChumpCar's laid-back but competitive environment. The Milwaukee-area team purchased a $500 1992 Honda Civic with more than 200,000 street miles on car. RealTime Racing then prepped the Honda with the required safety equipment and introduced the car last October at Wisconsin's famous Road America racing circuit. Team drivers included Red Line's Cameron Evans, Cam Douglass (VP-Marketing Optima Batteries), as well as RealTime Racing team manger Nathan Bonneau and lead mechanic Troy Wenzel.

BimmerWorld Racing, a leading BMW performance parts provider that competes in Grand-Am and NASA endurance racing, has also teamed-up with Red Line Oil on a second ChumpCar race entry. Led by James Clay, BimmerWorld's CEO and owner, the collaborative crews built a ChumpCar race car using a 1993 BMW E36 3-Series (with 197,000 miles on the odometer). BimmerWorld recently had a busy December debut with the car, first competing in ChumpCar's Regional Chumpionship event at Sonoma Raceway, as well as racing the company's E92 M3 in the 25 Hours of Thunderhill on the same weekend - two races, two events, 60 miles apart.

"ChumpCar is thrilled to have Red Line Oil as our newest sponsor," reports ChiefChump, John Condren, "and we're excited to have pro-race teams like RealTime and BimmerWorld join our series. These two professional groups now join the ranks of Riley & Scott, Tony Stewart Racing, Hendrick Motorsports and other pro-racing teams that enjoy our retro-racing approach, along with nearly 8,000 other 'Chumps' racing in our series. Red Line's support of the ChumpCar series and our race teams is outstanding, and the fact that they have built two cars to compete in our events proves that they're not your average race sponsor - there guys are racers. Red Line Oil, RealTime Racing, Optima Batteries, BimmerWorld... it's the best of the best and we're honored to have them be a part of our team."

ChumpCar is an endurance road racing series that is open to anyone and everyone. A throw-back to an era when racing was fun, competitive and cheap... when Bondo beat carbon-fiber; when a crescent wrench was the most valuable tool in your box; when home-made engineering made everyone sit up and take notice; and when adding a little theme or personality to your car didn't get you laughed off of pit lane.
