Class Concepts Announced for AMSOIL Masters of Motors Presented by JE Pistons

Due to rapidly growing support from the performance aftermarket industry, the 2020 Masters of Motors already has a current event purse totaling $60,000.

For the 2020 running of AMSOIL Masters of Motors presented by JE Pistons, the following class concepts will take place at JE Pistons’ Mentor, Ohio headquarters from September 28 through October 1, 2020. Official technical rules and requirements packets will be announced and posted in February.  

Due to rapidly growing support from the performance aftermarket industry, the 2020 Masters of Motors already has a current event purse totaling $60,000.

The following class concepts were designed to open the competition up to more builders than ever before, substantially reduce engine build costs, and provide for an exciting, intense and innovative competition with a huge potential payoff.

Holley Performance Everyman’s LS Class

With the goal of encouraging innovation without breaking the bank, the Holley Performance Everyman’s LS class will be heavily focused on inspiring builders to push the factory LS architecture into the stratosphere. Engines will be limited to 388 cid, forgoing a cubic inch factor, and require an OEM, serial numbered GM LS 15º cylinder head. All OEM engine blocks and select aftermarket blocks will be permitted as will both fuel injection and carburetion. Hydraulic lifters will be required, and the scoring range will be from 3,500 to 7,500 rpm.

Early Iron Class

The Early Iron class will carryover 90% of rules from last year’s competition, welcoming all 1968 and earlier production, pushrod V8s to compete. The class will again require production blocks and production iron heads and highlight a builder’s ability to coax big power from an early engine architecture. Notable changes from last year’s rules will include the allowance of non-car-chassis headers (dyno headers) and non-car-chassis oil pans will also be permitted.

Potential competitors can expect a registration page, complete rules, and additional information to be posted on www.mastersofmotors.com in early February. Happy building!
