Champion Oil, a recognized leader in racing and enthusiast lubricants, announced today that Sam Hafertepe Jr. won his fifth consecutive race to start the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network season Saturday at the Missouri State Fairgrounds. Champion Racing Oil sponsored teams finished 1-2-3.
Asked about his fifth win in as many starts, Hafertepe replied, “This is incredible. We really didn’t have the best car early on. We were way to tight and I had to start making it work, especially in three and four where they were just eating us up but just hats off to my guys and Champion Racing Oil.”
Fighting the tight race car though the opening laps, a restart on Lap 8 would prove pivotal for Hafertepe who was able to maneuver out of dirty air. Advancing into the chase for the lead, Hafertepe trailed Johnny Herrera, another Champion Racing Oil sponsored racer, by just shy of a half straightaway as the pair began to find traffic at the races midpoint.
To the approval of his hometown fans, Jonathan Cornell would run third in the Champion Racing Oil / Starline Brass No. 28.

Champion Racing Motor Oils contain a proprietary TVS® (Thermal Viscosity Stabilizer), special lubricity modifiers, and a premium level of anti-wear additives which includes a high quantity of ZDDP. These additives are proven to meet the lubrication demands of competition engines, create a tough film strength, which controls wear and provides more horsepower and torque in Dynamometer testing.
Champion Racing Oils are suitable for use in all competition and race engines especially those using flat tappet and/or roller cams operating at high RPM’s and requiring high-pressure valve springs. These “purpose-built” racing oils are offered in a popular range of multi-viscosity SAE grades and formulated to meet the demands of most of today’s high performance race engines.
