AMSOIL Dealer Wins Memorable Experience at NASCAR Bank of America 500 Race

This summer at the AMSOIL 35th Anniversary Convention, Dealers were given an opportunity to enter a drawing sponsored by WIX Filters for tickets to the NASCAR Bank of America 500 Race. As guests of AMSOIL and WIX, the winner received two tickets plus exciting perks such as pit clearance, a walk-through of the NASCAR garages, and all access passes at the races. Held at Lowe’s Motor Speedway in Charlotte, NC, the main event happened on Saturday, October 11th.

AMSOIL Dealer Charlie Koch from Lowden, IA won the drawing and with son Tim in tow experienced the weekend of a lifetime, a trip they won’t soon forget.

Charlie had never been to a NASCAR race before, and Tim had never attended a night race though he is a serious racing enthusiast. “It was a great, great experience…even for a person who hasn’t been previously associated with NASCAR. The WIX folks went above and beyond the call of duty to entertain us on both Friday and Saturday night races… Saturday nights’ race was certainly the highlight,” Said Charlie, who recently achieved Direct Jobber level with his AMSOIL Dealership. “I’ve been a livestock person all my life, and got associated with gear heads once I got involved with AMSOIL in 2004.”

This weekend’s NASCAR event was certainly a big one. Jessica Simpson performed a one-hour concert before the race, with many other celebrities in attendance. Jeff Burton (Chevy #31) ended up taking the win at Saturday’s race, followed by Kasey Kahne (Dodge #9). Rounding out the top 5 was Kurt Busch (Dodge #2), Kyle Busch (Camry #18), and Jamie McMurray (Ford #26), respectively.

Congratulations to Charlie Koch for his exciting win to attend the NASCAR Bank of America 500 Sprint Cup Race!
