Shell Racing Solutions and Q Racing Engine Oils announce a new partnership with Billy Drake Racing featuring the Shell formulated Q Racing Engine Oil.

Billy and his engine builder Mike Mullvain have been working closely with Shell Racing Solutions and testing the new Q Racing Engine Oils in his super late model engines on the dyno at Mullvain Motorsports. Billy is pleased to announce this new partnership with Q Racing Engine Oil and the opportunities for Q Racing Engine Oils to gain market share in the dirt late model industry.
"I am really excited to be a part of the Q Racing Engine Oil program for the dirt late model industry. Don VanValkenburgh at Shell Racing Solutions is really great to work with and hopefully we can grow this relationship into a long term deal. I couldn't race without great sponsors and this partnership is just another great opportunity for Billy Drake Racing," stated Billy.
