Gary Clark began his journey in the seat of a drag racer. When his personal life prevented him from continuing doing what he loved, Mr. Clark looked for a way to be a part of the speed and power that can only be felt when 1000's of Horse-Power meets pavement. That is how he was inspired to create and patent the Petron PlusFormule 7 and the rest is history. Here are a few of the hundreds of race teams that have relied on PPG over the years. Many race cars today have a competitors sticker on the hood, but P.P.G. is in the engine. Thank you Gary for the Greatest lubricant know to man.
Customer Challenge: A major NASCAR team dyno tested their race engines and made assorted changes to try and get more horsepower.
PPGI Solution: After running many times on the dyno, and making all sorts of changes, they added Petron Plus The Engine Conditioner to the engine. At 8,000 rpm the Petron Plus treated engine was producing 6.6 more horsepower and using less fuel to do it.
Customer Challenge: A second NASCAR team after dyno testing several of their race engines and made all sorts of changes to try and get more horsepower. They had a rep. from the factory stand-by while they ran another dyno test using Petron Plus products.
PPGI Solution: The engine after being treated with Petron Plus The Engine Conditioner made peak horsepower at 8,000 rpm. It also made 17.4 more horsepower. It also produced 19.6 more foot pounds of torque. The factory rep. was most impressed by the 1/4 mile per gallon increase in mileage.
Customer Challenge: A U.S.H.R.A. World Champion Truck Puller reported his oil pump drive belt broke as he approached the starting line, the oil pressure warning light failed to come on, and he ran at 8,000 rpm for over 15 seconds under full load with zero oil pressure! Then in returning to the starting line the flagman, gave him his broken oil pump drive belt.
PPGI Solution: The team has been using Petron Plus The Engine Conditioner, Transmission & Gear Box Supplement, and High-Temp Polyurea Grease for 2 years. They reported, upon tearing the engine down they found that they only had to polish the crankshaft and replace the rod bearings which had minimum damage- the main bearings were fine!
Customer Challenge: In the NASCAR Winston West race in Bakersfield, CA a race team reported: While coming out of turn two, the driver cut a tire down and the car sideswiped the wall. This particular car had not been converted over to bottom engine mounts and still had an engine plate mount in it. When the driver struck the wall this caused the engine plate to separate 1/8” from the block, causing the water to leak out slowly enough enabling us to detect it. After putting tires on the car and sending him back out, the water and oil temperature gauges both reached 280°F. When returning to the shop and pulling the engine, they noticed the cylinder heads had melted below the header flanges which was spraying melted aluminum on the top of the chassis. While pulling the cylinder heads, they found they had melted to the block, and while pulling the oil pan, the oil had thickened to the consistency of molasses.
PPGI Solution: They reported: They had been using Petron Plus The Engine Conditioner in their engines for sometime, and to their amazement, they found no damage to the crankshaft, rods, rod bearings, custom skirts, cylinder walls, or any lower engine components.
And the list goes on and on. These are not just phantom claims, we have letters from the race teams describing what happened, including the actual Dyno's from the N.A.S.C.A.R. teams.
