US Lube Returns as Official Oil Additive of the Battle of the Bluegrass
US Lube, a name very familiar to the sport of pulling, has returned as the Official Oil Additive for the BOB Series. “US Lube has proven itself to be the leader in heavy duty additives and we are glad to return to the Real Deal with US Lube,” said BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell. “Many of our pullers were asking about the Oil Enhancer Product, and US Lube created that product, and we are glad to have it available to both pullers and fans of the sport as well.”
US Lube is owned by Dave Latimer. Latimer was one of the founders of the Petro Truck Stop Chains, and has worked in the heavy duty industry since the late 1970’s, pioneering such changes in the trucking industry that includes full service truck centers and quick lube services, that today are taken for granted, but were not when Latimer debuted them in the industry. Latimer’s return to US Lube has sparked much interest, as Latimer is known for creating products that really work well. “I take a lot of pride with my products. I make sure that the products used in 2000 horsepower pulling motors are the same products used in over the road trucks and farm tractors. I use the sport of pulling to test and design the best additives I can and if they can withstand the test of pulling a sled, then US Lube can handle anything any farmer or trucker can put to it.”
US Lube’s product line includes its famous Oil Enhancer, which is known for extending the life of your engine, as well as its Fuel Enhancer, known for its fuel savings and horsepower increases. Clint Corwin, driver of the “Dilligaf” Dodge, has been using US Lube for several years and says “I am glad US Lube is back. The products are simply the best. I used some other products the last two years, and again, I cannot tell you how happy I am to be back with US Lube.”
US Lube is currently looking for dealers, distributors and WD’s. For more information about becoming a dealer or distributor please contact Nadia at 502-271-8978. For more information about US Lube please go to their website at www.uslube.us.
