Larry Dixon to Sign Autographs at Prolong SEMA, AAPEX Booths

Three-time National Hot Rod Association Top Fuel champion Larry Dixon will be in the Prolong Super Lubricants booth at the AAPEX Show (#6506) on Tuesday, Nov. 5 from 1 p.m. to  4 p.m. and the SEMA Show booth (#33237) on Wednesday, Nov. 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

SEMA and AAPEX attendees are encouraged to stop by the booths to learn more about the Prolong product line and receive a complimentary hero card autographed by Dixon. 

Prolong sponsored Dixon throughout the 2013 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. “It’s exciting to have a driver of Dixon’s reputation and character choosing Prolong, allowing audiences to see our products and technology in action at a professional level,” said Jon Apogée, General Manager, Domestic Sales, Marketing and Motorsports, Prolong Super Lubricants. 

In addition to winning three NHRA Full Throttle World Championships, Dixon has racked up 62 national event victories, 51 top qualifying spots, 46 low elapsed time runs and 33 top speed passes. 
”We’ve used Prolong’s Nitro Racing Oil for the 2013 season and haven’t had an oil-related failure. That says a lot, especially when dragsters have a 10,000 horsepower engine,” said Dixon. “We also use Prolong’s Engine Treatment, Super Heavy Duty Oil Stabilizer and Waterless Wash & Shine. The products provide extra engine protection and give the dragster’s exterior a polished look.”  

The company’s Nitro Racing Oil features a blend of premium synthetic base oils and additives, and is formulated with Prolong’s advanced Anti-Friction Metal Treatment(tm) (AFMT) technology to protect against high temperature oxidation, wear and viscosity breakdown during severe use. AFMT bonds to metal surfaces, diminishing the effects of metal-to-metal friction and redirecting the engine’s fuel-combustion energy straight to the horsepower necessary for optimum performance and fuel economy. 

In addition to Nitro Racing Oil, Dixon uses Engine Treatment and Super Heavy Duty Oil Stabilizer, which both feature AFMT. Engine Treatment helps protect the engine in the event of an oil or coolant loss and helps restore engine efficiency to optimize fuel economy. Prolong’s Super Heavy Duty Oil Stabilizer stops oil leaks, reduces oil burning, eliminates engine noise, reduces exhaust smoke, increases compression, extends oil life and protects engines against a cold start. 

Dixon uses Prolong’s Waterless Wash & Shine as it delivers a beautiful car wash in less than 15 minutes without the need for water, rinsing or drying. The formula features special lubricating agents to encapsulate dirt, sap, tar and bugs so they can be removed with ease and without scratching the paint.
