I started using Penn Grade 1® SAE 20W50 in 2006 after I had a bad run with a couple of motors. I was investigating additional ways to keep the engine together longer and came across Penn Grade 1® that was distributed by my local speed shop, Winner’s Circle in Joliet, Illinois.
My Engine Builder, Tuff Guy Racing Engines in Orland Hills, Illinois had been using Penn Grade 1® for about 8 years and uses it exclusively. He told me there was no other oil on the market that clings to bearing surfaces as well as Penn Grade 1®.
Recently, after two seasons and hundreds of runs, we tore the motor down for a freshen up. The motor looked practically new. With this engine, I had gone through numerous heat cycles and ran the car very hard. Still, the cam and main bearings looked brand new with very little wear. Penn Grade 1® simply lives up to its reputation with no unnecessary hype. It doesn’t require an excessive premium or price to use. You pour it in, and you will get outstanding results.
I recommend Penn Grade 1® to friends and fellow racers. It’s simple outstanding insurance. Besides, it’s best to win when your competitor has the fewest excuses as possible!
