FOND DU LAC, WI (April 19, 2017) — Quicksilver is proud to announce that Quicksilver Powersports Lubricants is joining the MotoAmerica series for the first time as a Supporting Sponsor of the 2017 MotoAmerica Series.

In addition to its sponsorship, Quicksilver Powersports Lubricants will also be a part of the MotoAmerica Safety Council, as a service provider in the MotoAmerica paddock and will participate at the events with trackside consumer displays.

“This is our inaugural year of working directly with MotoAmerica and we’re excited about telling our very unique story as the season unfolds”, said Eric Reilley, product marketing manager of Quicksilver Powersports Lubricants. “As the original equipment parts and lubricant division of Mercury Marine – the world’s largest manufacturer of recreational and commercial marine engines – Quicksilver’s expertise in formulating oils and designing uncompromising products translates well into the motorcycle industry, and especially into motorcycle racing. We’re not here simply to sponsor races; we’re here to learn, grow, support and share our nearly 70 years of American experience with this industry.”

“Quicksilver is our newest partner and it’s nice to have them on board as part of our sponsorship package for 2017,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “They are in the motorsports business and they take this very seriously. We know that Quicksilver is using MotoAmerica as a way of developing new products in a competitive environment. MotoAmerica is all about competition so it’s the perfect fit for both of us.”


Since 1950, discriminating customers have depended on the Quicksilver brand for premium quality marine and powersports parts, accessories, and engine care products. Quicksilver is one of the most trusted brands in the markets we serve. It has earned a loyal following by providing the highest quality products for more than 60 years. Quicksilver is a brand of Mercury Marine and Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC).
