Prolong Super Lubricants Announces Tony Pedregon Sponsorship

Tony Pedregon-ProlongTwo-time National Hot Rod Association funny car world champion Tony Pedregon has chosen Prolong Super Lubricants as his primary lubricant sponsor for the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. Pedregon has had 43 career wins, with a career-best elapsed time at 4.041 seconds, and he holds the record of quickest quarter-mile run in funny car history at 4.659 seconds.

Pedregon says he trusts Prolong products to protect the 10,000 horsepower engine in his funny car. His crew uses Prolong’s newest Nitro Racing Oil, designed to deliver extra protection and performance in alcohol- or nitromethane-fueled race engines. In addition to Prolong’s Nitro Racing Oil, he also adds the company’s performance-enhancing Engine Treatment and Oil Stabilizer. Even Pedregon’s transport vehicle gets a boost from Prolong products, with Diesel Injector Cleaner and Diesel Fuel System Cleaner to help improve mileage as the team travels. And the company’s Waterless Wash & Shine and Super Protectant keep both the transporter and the racecar looking clean.

“We are excited to sponsor Tony Pedregon throughout this racing season. Our products are proven to protect engines and bearings from wear during the extreme pressure of high horsepower engines,” said Jon Apogee, general manager: marketing, domestic sales and motorsports, Prolong Super Lubricants. “Not only do Prolong products help prevent metal-to-metal wear by bonding to the metal, but our oil also limits dilution from the nitro and therefore protects bearing surfaces for the entire run. This means teams can utilize key parts run after run saving thousands of dollars.”

Prolong Nitro Racing Oil features a blend of premium synthetic base oils and additives and is available in 40, 50 and 70 weight versions. All Prolong Oil, Engine Treatment Fuel Products and Oil Stabilizer products are formulated with Prolong’s Anti-Friction Metal Treatment technology to protect against high temperature oxidation, wear and viscosity breakdown during severe use, the company says. Made in the United States and meeting the demand of high-horsepower, high-RPM engines, these advanced products feature highly-effective detergent dispersants and corrosion inhibitors to keep engine parts clean and free of sludge, varnish and rust, according to Prolong.
