Maxxis-Sponsored Athletes Win Big at AMSOIL Championship


Recommended Posts

Maxxis’s sponsored athletes took ownership of the Big House, continuing the company’s dominance of AMSOIL Championship Off-Road racing.

Jimmy Henderson earned a career-first Pro 4 win at Round 3 and then went on to take first place again the next day, and Trey Gibbs took the Pro Lite victory on Sunday.

Other Maxxis athletes also turned in great results at AMSOIL Championship Off-Road Rounds 3 and 4, held June 24-25 in Crandon, Wisconsin.

Henderson’s determination turned Round 4 into a real barn-burner. After leading for most of the race, he was passed by another athlete, but he stayed close to the front car and was awarded first place after a review by race officials.

tires to victory.

“We have been close in years past with second- and third-place finishes, but now with the Maxxis advantage, we have our first Pro4 win,” he said. “The durability and grip created space for us to place the truck back on the first-place podium in Round 4.”

Henderson’s fellow Maxxis athlete Adrian Cenni, who is having an outstanding season so far, took second place at Round 4.

Gibbs, now in his first year as a Maxxis athlete, won Sunday’s Pro Lite race after taking second place the day before. Brody Eggleston also made the podium, taking third place in the class at Round 4. Maxxis’ athletes primarily rode the RAZR AT and

in Pro Lite at Crandon.

Also riding RAZR AT tires was veteran Maxxis athlete Mickey Thomas. Thomas was in the Pro 2 top three at both rounds, taking third place Saturday and second place Sunday.

Trey Eggleston was on the Pro Stock SxS podium in third place Saturday. Most Maxxis SxS athletes chose the Maxxis

for the weekend’s racing; Maxxis-sponsored athletes have won championships on both tires.

Nick Byng powered his way to the Super Stock Truck podium, taking second place at Round 4, and Maxxis driver Dylan Parsons made the Pro Spec top five.

AMSOIL Championship Off-Road Rounds 5 and 6 are scheduled for July 14-15 in Elk River, Minnesota.

      Christian Eckes finished second on Saturday afternoon for the third-straight season at World Wide Technology Raceway. The driver of the No. 19 Gates Hydraulics Chevrolet Silverado RST led for the 12th-straight race this season and delivered a 53-point performance, tied for the most of all drivers in the field. Eckes now holds a 31-point advantage in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series (NCTS) standings after 12 races with four remaining in the regular season.
      Eckes was near the front of the field for the entire weekend in St. Louis. On Friday afternoon, he posted the second-quickest lap in practice and qualified second. After cloudy and rainy skies gave way to bright sunshine on Saturday afternoon, Eckes fired off in the second position and threatened for the lead. A restart on lap 16 gave him the opportunity to briefly claim the race lead in the 12th event this season. While he battled a tight handling condition, Eckes maintained the second position for the balance of Stage 1 to earn nine points on lap 35.
      Crew chief Charles Denike elected to put four tires on Eckes’ Gates Hydraulics Chevrolet during the stage caution as varying strategies developed. Eckes restarted 12th on lap 42, but swiftly made his way back towards the front. He restarted eighth on lap 55 after a quick yellow and immediately rejoined the top five on lap 56. The balance on his Chevrolet was improved but a tight condition still lingered. He took the third spot on lap 64 and reclaimed second on lap 67. He collected another nine points at the end of Stage 2 on lap 70.
      During the second stage caution, Eckes took another set of fresh tires, but an issue on the left front relegated him to restart 12th on lap 78. Despite the setback, Eckes locked in and drove forward yet again to blitz his way back into the top five on lap 91. A long green flag run set up a cycle of green flag pit stops beginning at lap 118. Eckes pitted for the final time on lap 122 under green for four tires and a minor adjustment. He narrowly unlapped himself before the race’s final caution flew on lap 130. Eckes cycled to third for the event’s final restart on lap 137. He seized control of a podium position on the restart and moved into second on lap 150. Eckes began to reel in the leader in the waning laps but took the checkered flag in second position for his sixth top-five finish of the season.
      “The whole weekend was second,” Eckes said. “We practiced in second. We qualified second. Second in both stages and second in the race. Consistent on that, but just definitely let one slip there. I felt like we should have won that race and felt like we had the best truck, but just got behind on track position and never could get it back up. Just super hard to pass and here we are running second. Can’t thank Gates Hydraulics, NAPA, Chevrolet, and everybody enough, and Sparks Tire & Auto.”

      Redemption was served on Saturday night at Bristol Motor Speedway (BMS) as Christian Eckes was victorious after leading 144 laps and swept the night for his first victory at “Thunder Valley”. The driver of the No. 19
      link hidden, please login to view Chevrolet Silverado RST atoned for his runner-up finish at BMS last September in convincing fashion by pacing practice, earning his seventh-career pole award, and leading the most laps. The sixth NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series (NCTS) victory of his career vaulted him to fifth in the championship standings after earning a race-high 57 points.
      Eckes put the entire field on notice during practice that his NAPA Auto Care Chevrolet would be the truck to beat. He posted a quick time of 15.55 seconds in practice and backed it up with MHR’s third-straight pole on the BMS concrete, and his second-consecutive. At the green flag, Eckes jumped out to a quick lead and paced the opening 52 circuits. A loose handling condition hindered him from collecting a playoff point in the first segment but still earned nine points in second position at the end of Stage 1 on lap 65.

      Crew chief Charles Denike kept Eckes on track during the first stage caution to employ a one-stop strategy in an effort to maintain track position. The race ran without incident from lap 77 through the end of Stage 2 on lap 130. During the run, Eckes continued to wrestle with a loose condition on corner entry and was scored third to earn eight points at lap 130 before coming to pit road for his only pit stop of the night for four tires, fuel, and adjustments.

      The NAPA Auto Care team gained a position for Eckes on the stop and allowed him to restart on the front row for the lap 143 restart. He began to pressure Kyle Busch for the race lead on lap 154 and reclaimed the top spot on lap 159. Eckes perfectly executed a restart on lap 227 and created a comfortable gap over the final 24 circuits. In the waning laps, Eckes was able to fend off Busch’s response for the lead and banked his first BMS win. His victory also marked a historic night for MHR as teammates Zane Smith and NCTS points leader Tyler Ankrum joined him in the top-five, marking the first time the organization has had three of the top-five finishers.

      “Oh, man, it’s so sweet” Eckes said. “There’s just so much behind this win from last year, missing out on the Championship 4 and losing the race with six (laps) to go. To come back and redeem ourselves was our number one goal, and not only that, but the first three races, how terribly they’ve gone. We had a lot of issues, and to come back and run really good just show the resilience of the team.”

      AMSOIL has added a new 0W-40 viscosity to its line of OE 100% synthetic motor oil to better meet the emerging demands of advanced automotive technology.
      The new OE 0W-40 is primarily for newer RAM HD trucks equipped with the 6.4-liter Hemi engine, AMSOIL noted.

      AMSOIL OE 100% synthetic motor oil is specifically designed to deliver maximum wear protection, fuel economy and emissions control for the longer drain intervals recommended by OE manufacturers, according to the company.  
      The motor oil is licensed by the American Petroleum Institute (API) to meet and exceed the requirements commonly found in owner’s manuals. AMSOIL OE 100% synthetic motor oil also is friendly toward modern emissions-control systems to promote proper operation of catalytic converters for optimum service life and low exhaust emissions, according to
      link hidden, please login to view.   Low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI) is a common issue found in today’s advanced engines and is much more destructive than typical pre-ignition. OE 100% synthetic motor oil achieved 100% protection against low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI), based on testing required by the GM dexos 1 Gen 2 specification. 
      The motor oil provides 47% more wear protection than required by the GM dexos 1 Gen 2 specification, based on independent testing cited by AMSOIL.
      “AMSOIL OE 100% synthetic motor oil has a 100% synthetic, pure chemical structure engineered to remove harmful contaminants and provide long-lasting engine protection and performance,” AMSOIL said in a news release. “It features an advanced detergent and dispersant additive package designed to protect against sludge and deposits to deliver maximum engine cleanliness.”
      AMSOIL OE 100% synthetic motor oil is available in the following viscosities: 0W-16, 0W-20, 5W-20, 5W-30, 10W-30 and 0W-40.

      Christian Eckes was one of the early favorites at Atlanta Motor Speedway before a brake issue put a halt to his strong afternoon. The driver of the No. 19
      link hidden, please login to view Chevrolet Silverado RST led 20 laps in the opening segment enroute to a stage win and captured his first playoff point of the season. However, Eckes’ afternoon resulted in a 32nd-place finish after completing 50 circuits.
      Eckes took the green flag in fifth position as he and his MHR teammates dominated qualifying, with all four trucks occupying the top-five spots in the starting lineup. In typical fashion, Eckes wasted no time making bold moves towards the lead. He grabbed the second position on the opening lap and took the lead on lap 11. Shortly after a restart on lap 22, Eckes radioed his NAPA Auto Care team that his brake pedal was going to the floor and that he did not have any brakes. Despite the alarming discovery, Eckes drove to the stage win on lap 30, but was forced to pit under the stage caution.

      Crew chief Charles Denike and the MHR team attempted to resolve the issue, but Eckes was forced to retire early and was credited with the 32nd-place result.

      “We had a really fast NAPA Auto Care Chevrolet,” Eckes said. “We drove straight to the lead early and was able to control the race for most of the first stage. The brake pedal went to the floor towards the end of the first stage and had some fluid inside the truck, so its really unfortunate for our team and everybody at NAPA that was out here today with us. We’ll go to Vegas and try to make up for it”

      Chase Elliott started the Daytona 500 from the fifth position after earning a second-place finish in the first of two Duels on Thursday at Daytona International Speedway The 2020 NASCAR Cup Series champion claimed the stage one victory, earning a coveted playoff point Elliott narrowly missed a multicar incident late in the final stage, which resulted in a red flag, and he made a charge for the front before ultimately finishing the 500-mile race 14th The driver of the No. 9 link hidden, please login to view Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 leaves Daytona fourth in the Cup Series points standings Chase Elliott and the No. 9 NAPA Auto Parts team started fifth in Monday’s Daytona 500, which had been postponed due to rain. Elliott earned the top-five starting position after finishing second in the first of two Duel qualifying races on Thursday evening. It didn’t take long for the first caution of Monday’s race to occur. The field was slowed at lap six for a multicar incident deeper in the field. Elliott pitted from the sixth position for fuel only and restarted inside the top 10 on lap 12. The driver of the No. 9 NAPA Auto Parts Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 continued to run in the bottom lane before making moves to take over the lead for the first time of the race on lap 45. He held point for multiple laps before bringing his Chevrolet to the attention of his crew for a few seconds worth of fuel. Elliott returned to the track and battled hard in the closing laps to win the first stage of the race.

      Under the stage-ending caution, crew chief Alan Gustafson called Elliott to pit road for four fresh tires and fuel. Elliott lined up inside the top 10 to start the second stage on lap 70 and the field went three-wide early in the run. The 28-year-old driver eventually moved to the top lane to try to gain some ground after the inside lane he had been running in lost momentum. Elliott regained some track position after a pit stop for fuel on lap 115. He ran as high as second before his lane began to fade and he finished the second stage in 19th. 

      The Dawsonville, Georgia, native came to pit road twice during the stage break, first for four tires and fuel and then he returned to top off the tank. He took the green flag for the final stage on lap 137 from the 24th position and worked his way up inside the top 20, where he spent much of the remainder of the race. Elliott pitted from the sixth position on lap 183 and was scored in fifth after a multicar incident brought out the red flag with eight laps to go. The NAPA Chevy received only minor damage as Elliott miraculously worked his way through the melee. Opting not to pit once the red flag was lifted, Elliott lined up in the top lane for the restart with four laps remaining. Elliott was determined to battle for the win, but ultimately finished 14th after he got shuffled out of the preferred lane and lost ground to the leaders.

      Elliott and the No. 9 team leave Daytona fourth in the Cup Series points standings.

      “I made a mistake there on the last lap and not sure I would have got to the front row, but certainly would have been a better finish for us,” Elliott said. “I hate that because we had a solid day otherwise. Happy for William (Byron) to kick off the 40th year of Hendrick Motorsports with the win.”

      Points Standing / Total: 4th / 42 pts.
