TOP 1 Oil To Showcase ‘World’s Fastest Motor Oil’ at AAPEX Show

BURLINGAME, Calif., Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- TOP 1 Oil, a leading American brand of high quality lubricants into international markets, will be showcasing the only lubricant durable enough to help set a new motorcycle world land speed record of more than 360mph. The family-run oil products company will have its specially-formulated oil on display at its booth (#1675) during the AAPEX Show at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada November 4-6. The AAPEX Show is the world's largest business-to-business event for the $295 Billion Automotive Aftermarket Industry.

Chosen by land speed racing legend Mike Akatiff for use in his 900hp, twin Hayabusa-powered ACK Attack streamliner, TOP 1 Oil's SMO-8000 Series lubricants are fully synthetic multi-viscosity motor oils engineered to provide maximum protection for all engines over a wide range of operating conditions. TOP SMO-8000 Series resists thermal breakdown in extreme driving conditions. It stays intact under severe engine stress, providing excellent low-temperature fluidity and superb resistance against high temperature oxidation and oil thickening.

On September 26, 2008 the TOP 1 Oil ACK Attack joined an elite group of teams that conquered the challenges of the Bonneville Salt Flats. After five days of pushing their motorcycle to new limits at the TOP 1 World Land Speed Shootout, Akatiff, driver Rocky Robinson, and crew beat the existing absolute FIM motorcycle land speed record with a blistering 360.913 mph run. Details about and a link to video of the record-setting feat are available at

"TOP 1 Oil's SMO-8000 is the only oil I trust will work at more than 350mph," said team owner Mike Akatiff. "Without TOP 1's quality products, there's no way we would have been successful."
