Beal Racing Signs Maxima Racing Oils to Exclusive Engine Oil Sponsorship for 2016

Maxima LogoSan Diego, CA – Beal Racing, a 300mph NHRA nitro funny car team, signs Maxima Racing Oils, a Southern California-based high performance oil products company, to an exclusive deal to be the official supplier of engine oil for Beal Racing in 2016.

“Engine oil is a critical component for delivering extreme performance and longevity in our high horsepower motors,” Chuck Beal stated. “To protect and lubricate a 10,000 horsepower nitro motor from the starting line to the finish line takes an engineering feat that few companies can achieve. Maxima’s oil can stand up to everything we throw at it.”

Beal Racing previously served as a research and development resource to help Maxima’s engineers fine tune their 70wt nitro engine oil.

“We are excited to partner with Beal Racing in 2016,” stated Chris Schell of Maxima Racing Oils. “The NHRA nitro cars are the most extreme proving ground for our straight weight engine oils, and Beal Racing will continue to show our commitment to delivering the highest quality performance automotive lubricants available.”

Beal Racing will compete in 8 races on the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series with driver Brandon Welch in 2016, starting in Houston, TX April 29-May 1.
