Oil...

Hey guys- Question- I am running this weekend at Road Atlanta in the ARRC. The weather is supposed to be in the 40's at night and about 65-70 during the day... What oil should I race on... 20W40?

I like the Valvoline racing 20w-50 too. It seems to maintain higher pressure at sustained high rpms than anything else I tried.

Thanks guys- That is what I am going to run. I just wanted someone else's input- Some people will say that 20w50 is to much for the cold weather... but my response is that... the engine is already warm by the time you go out on the track anyway... Thanks again!
