Charlotte, NC – Greg Finnican, director of the Race Engine Challenge Dyno Competition, has announced that San Antonio-based VP Racing Fuels has been named Title Sponsor of the 2018 competition.
“We are excited to have VP on board with us as our title sponsor,” Finnican said. “This partnership will provide our competitors with the fuel for the dyno runs (VP MS 109) as well as the viscosity of synthetic oil they prefer.”
The inaugural American Iron 2-valve Shootout Race Engine Challenge will be held October 2-6, 2018 in Charlotte, NC. The event will feature 15 engine builders from across the United States putting their most creative builds against each other in a dyno racing competition.with the two top engines battling each other on Saturday, Finnican says. Scores will be determined by averaging three of the best HP dyno pulls out of the up to 10 pulls permitted. The contest will use a cubic inch divider to compensate for varied engine displacement. Scored test RPM range is 4,000-7,500 RPM; the dyno correction factor will be SAE J607. Pulls will be made on a SuperFlow Powermark engine dyno.
