800 laps and the bearings look like new

We are excited to share a remarkable story from one of our loyal customers, Steve Askew, who uses Daytona 1 products in his racing engines. Steve's experience is a testament to the quality and reliability of our lubricants. Below are his updates demonstrating the exceptional performance of his engine over multiple racing seasons.

"I've been using Daytona 1 Performance Lubricants loyally for years, and the results speak for themselves. My engine has lasted an approximate 800 laps of hard racing, and the bearings and rings look like they could go another 800 laps."

April 28th Update:
"We did a compression test this morning, and it has 180-190 on all cylinders. This will be our fourth season without a refresh. Decided to freshen up some parts after 800 laps ... look at the pics, they look brand new. I would not be afraid to run them another season."

This car performs double duty, with Butch Anderson running it in Sportsman and Deborah Gladney in B-Sportsman. This means the car races in both classes.

"Daytona 1 Performance Lubricants has truly made a difference in the longevity and performance of my engine. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to get the most out of their racing equipment." - Steve Askew

We are proud to support racers like Steve, who push the limits and rely on Daytona 1 to keep their engines running smoothly and efficiently. Their success is our success, and we look forward to many more stories of endurance and performance.
