Charles Morris of Performance Counts Racing Engines began using Penn Grade 1® High Performance Oils a few years ago and now says, “All of Performance Counts racing engines are now broken-in on the dyno with Brad Penn break-in oil, and are delivered to the customer filled with Brad Penn® Partial Synthetic High Performance Oil “The Green OilTM”.  We do not recommend any other oil in our engines”.

“Our High Performance Oils are becoming the talk of the racing industry.  What separates us from the competition is a unique blend of our Penn Grade base oils and a selected balance of anti-wear additive.  Racers and engine builders alike have recognized the unique green color and enjoyed the superior performance when using our Penn Grade 1 High Performance Oil.  In response to requests from many racing engine builders and from the success of our current High Performance Oil line, we felt the timing was right to add an elite High Performance break-in oil to round out our product offerings in this specialized market segment.” stated Jennifer Taylor, Marketing Specialist for Brad Penn® Lubricants.

Brad Penn® Penn Grade 1® High Performance Oils are formulated in five viscosity grades, partial synthetic SAE 10W-30, partial synthetic SAE 20W-50, SAE 50, NITRO 70 and the new SAE 30 Break-In Oil.  For more information about Penn Grade 1® High Performance Oils you can visit our website at
