JE Pistons has announced Automotive Racing Products (ARP) has come onboard for the 2020 AMSOIL Masters of Motors presented by JE Pistons event as the title sponsor of the Early Iron class.
“ARP got its start producing high-quality fasteners for engine building and we are very excited to support our core demographic through the Masters of Motors dyno event,” said Bob Florine of ARP. “A huge portion of our customer base is professional and enthusiast engine builders and this event was a natural fit for us.”
ARP’s involvement, along with several other great companies such as AMSOIL, Holley Performance Products, JE Pistons, School of Automotive Machinists, Superflow Dynos, and more, serves to increase the winner’s purse and ultimately put more money in the winning engine builders’ pockets.
“We are excited to welcome ARP to the Masters of Motors team,” said Mark Gearhart of JE Pistons. “The amount of support from the industry to keep this event alive and facilitate a healthy competition for our engine building customers has been overwhelming and greatly appreciated.”
Masters of Motors is set to take place at JE Pistons’ Mentor, Ohio headquarters September 28th through October 1st, 2020 and Official technical rules and requirements packets will be announced the week of February 3rd.
The following are class concepts 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.
ARP 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.
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 388ci, 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.
Potential competitors can expect a registration page, complete rules, and additional information to be posted on www.mastersofmotors.com in early February. Happy building!
