The AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge is accepting 10 applicants for each designated class, with all other applicants becoming alternates. Entry fee is $350 per applicant. Using JE Pistons’ SuperFlow dynamometer, each competitor’s engine will be put through a series of tests designed to measure torque, power, and performance, where the best combination of torque and horsepower scores wins the class.
