TEAM AMSOIL OFFSHORE IS AWARDED THE SILVER CUP AT THE DETROIT APBA GOLD CUP RACES JULY 10TH, 11TH, AND 12TH

Team AMSOIL Offshore was invited by the American Power Boat Association (APBA) to compete in the offshore heat races conducted in conjunction with the 100th running of the Detroit Gold Cup Unlimited Hydroplane Race sponsored by Chrysler Jeep Superstores. The three day event started with testing on Friday. There were three exciting heat races on Saturday and two final heats on Sunday, in front of thousands of fans.

Team AMSOIL put on a great show battling with the other offshore catamarans on the tight 2 ½ mile, pear-shaped course. The tightest turn was in front of the grandstands and gave the fans a close look at some deck to deck racing.

AMSOIL Dealers were provided a premium display booth area that was staffed by Bill & Kathy Bernethy, Scot & Delores Brauer, and Berry Mugridge. The AMSOIL dealers were busy all day on Saturday and Sunday promoting products and providing technical information while the AMSOIL Offshore race boat was creating excitement.

At the awards, Team AMSOIL was presented with the perpetual Silver Cup where Bob Teague's and Paul Whittier's names will be added to the long list of previous recipients.

Next stop is the annual Saint Clair Offshore race on August 1st and 2nd. This will be a grand event with the merging of the OSS and OPA racing organizations. Team AMSOIL will have a product booth in its dry pit location staffed by AMSOIL Dealers at this event. The city is expecting to draw nearly 100,000 spectators this year.

Next stop: OPA/OSS Race - St. Clair, Michigan - August 1 & 2, 2009
