With the most anticipated weekend of off-road racing coming up, Crandon International Off-Road Raceway plays host to the annual Labor Day Weekend Championships.  An important milestone to this year’s weekend of short course races is AMSOIL’s announcement of a larger purse in the AMSOIL Cup. This is the third straight year the AMSOIL will sponsor the race and the increase in prize is in line with the AMSOIL’s celebrating 40 years in the automotive engine oil industry.
Chad Hord took home the AMSOIL Cup last year, worth a first prize of $25,000. It was only the third time in the race’s running that a PRO2 won the race. This year if Hord is lucky enough to win the cup once more, he will be walking away with an even bigger pot- $40,000 all thanks to AMSOIL, the industry number 1 in innovative and premiere lubricating oil.
AMSOIL Race Program Executive Jeremy Meyer has expressed his anticipation of the upcoming race and has stated high hopes for the cup.

The AMSOIL Cup was first run in 2010 and featuring the competition between popular TORC PRO 2WD and PRO 4×4 trucks over 10 laps. What makes the playing field more even is the 12-second initial start handicap given to PRO 2WD trucks. Hord won last year while the inaugural title was claimed by Scott Douglas. With the recent Chairman’s Cup being held at the Crandon’s as a season opener this year (June 16), the excitement keeps on mounting for the upcoming AMSOIL Cup tournament.
In the Chairman’s Cup Brush Run, the race came down to a RAM/Mopar factory Pro2WD with Rob MacCashren claiming the win by outdriving a persistent Adrian Cenni of Real Tree Energy on a PRO 4x. Cenni lost his chance at claiming the cup when he busted out one of the rear tires and skidding off track after a top speed dash and eventually placing him behind MacCachren’s tracks.
Crandon International Off-Road Raceway’s Cliff Flannery also mentioned his excitement and gratitude to the continuing support of AMSOIL. In a statement, Flannery expressed Crandon’s enthusiasm about the partnership in promoting highly anticipated off-road projects. He acknowledged AMSOIL’s generous participation to the Crandon races. He also mentioned that drivers from all over the country join the Crandon fall events and that with the $40,000 first prize, the AMSOIL Cup has become an even bigger attraction.

It’s been roaming around that GM is all set in redesigning all of its existing and incoming pick-up trucks and in the list is its Chevrolet Silverado and Sierra pick-ups.

GM’s decision of redesigning has been getting around for the reason of offering better fuel economy for trucks and pick-up line ups. Not only GM trucks and pick-ups will have new chassis but also will be sporting new interior and exterior styling, a way too far from its previous styling concept. To make it a better choice for drivers, GM’s trucks will have improved aerodynamics and not to mention engine improvements to make it a lighter but high performance with an eight-speed automatic transmission. GM’s reaction is based on its decision to invest heavily on technology and thus boosts its campaign for fuel economy on its pick-up and trucks side.

It is expected to see more than 1500 newly redesigned pick-ups early this years and in the coming next year, another 2500 redesigned variants to reach dealer’s lots. All with new sheet metals and new cosmetics beaming with proud interior improvements.

With some tweaks on the grille and new hood and front fascia, GM fanatics won’t complain of getting too far from its general image as a one tough road pick-up. Expect to see the arrival of these light-duty 1500 trucks next year when GM starts delivering on dealer’s garage.

New Chassis and suspension plus some steering changes were given to GM’s Silverado and Sierrra 2010 models and a re-engineered diesel engine make this two GM’s pride to make grand entrance for the year 2010. However, both the Silverado and Sierra still have to go with this GM’s redesigning idea.

In the past, GM has been in recall troubles and financial crisis however, with newly build-up enthusiasm for GM’s trucks and pick-ups, the once trouble-gripped carmaker is now bouncing back to its top position. GM is all out in investing to technology to speed up its claim to a better and efficient fuel economy for its trucks and pick-up. With its redesigning decision, GM is keen on getting even more improved sales for its trucks and pick-ups. GM’s Silverado and Seirra generations are not giving its competitors a leeway of domineering the sales but more of giving them a tough competition. With GM’s redesigning move, car buyers can expect to own an efficient and better fuel economy GM trucks.
