Royal-Purple-Synthetic-Oil-Logo-6-3-14Porter, TX – Premium synthetic lubricant manufacturer, Royal Purple, today announced that it will sponsor Red Bull Global Rallycross (GRC) driver Sarah Burgess in her inaugural foray into the rally car series for the 2014 season. Burgess will enter her first Red Bull GRC race at the X Games in Austin, June 7, at the Circuit of the Americas.

A native of Australia, Burgess has been drift racing for the past three years in the United States, most recently in the Xtreme Drift Circuit at the wheel of a 2013 Ford Mustang. The excitement of checkered flag racing is just one of the reasons Burgess made the transition to the Red Bull GRC series. Burgess is one of two female drivers competing in Red Bull GRC this season, and she welcomes the opportunity to be a role model for other women while competing in her 2.0L Ecotec-powered Chevrolet Sonic.

Chandler, AZ
— Global lubricant leader Royal Purple has stepped up to support “Pink” UTV racer Lacrecia Beurrier as she tackles The Mint 400 this year. The DragonFire-sponsored driver is the defending Sportsman Class champ, but she is looking to challenge the top pros this year. Since its first running back in 1967, The Mint has developed a well-deserved reputation for destroying cars and defeating drivers — exactly the sort of challenge Lacrecia is looking for and the ideal proving grounds for Royal Purple’s products.

Feb. 18, 2011 (Porter, TX) – What happens when the creative minds at Royal Purple and Xtreme 4×4 get together? The result is Xtreme 4×4’s Blog Buggy presented by Royal Purple.

The project is a first time, unique opportunity for fans of Xtreme 4×4 to be directly involved in a custom build. Xtreme 4×4 picked the chassis, but the rest is up to the online voter. The 17 categories to vote on cover everything from axels to paint and transfer cases to lockers.

“We wanted to find a way to get the viewers involved. Usually you see pre-spec builds on shows, but this time what goes in and on the vehicle is decided exclusively by the vote,” said Royal Purple’s Randy Fisher. “It’s a huge mix and match to choose from, and we can’t wait to see how this Blog Buggy turns out,” he added.
