Champion Oil, a recognized leader in racing and enthusiast lubricants, congratulates Brett Hearn who reached a rare milestone Friday night at Albany-Saratoga Speedway, notching his 900th documented win in a career that dates to his first Sportsman win in 1976 at Pennsylvania’s Nazareth Speedway.
Clinton, MO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/07/2017 -- Victory number 899 came last week in a relatively easy run after weeks of struggling, but this time around the action in front of Hearn was wild and crazy and he barely escaped getting caught up in the mayhem.
Hearn was third and when DeLorenzo went over turn two, he then got to second. At the same time, defending track champion Johnson began making ground on the extreme bottom, working through the top five to pass Hearn on lap 23, just before the yellow flew waved again.
Hearn got a great jump on the ensuing restart and easily ran away from Johnson, who crossed second ahead of Flach, Stratton, and Tremont. "He's the old pro," said Ronnie Johnson. "Passing him isn't easy and second to Brett is nothing to be ashamed of."
Hearn, sponsored by Champion Racing Oil, has a career record which includes 557 Big-Block Modified wins, 339 victories in Small-Block Modified/Sportsman competition, and 2 wins driving a URC Sprint Car and 78 track and series sponsorships.

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.

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.
