Default Byrons Contingency Program... Does it work?

Hello all,

I'm looking at switching our shop brand over to Byron's and I am seeking feed back. One major reason we are switching is that Byrons Racing fuel is hard to come by in our area so we'd like to carry it for those who would like to use it.

Another big selling point is their contingency program. It appears that the average racer (Sportsman/Non Pro) could benefit by using and placing or even winning some events with their fuel which is not only a great selling point but a huge help for those racers who support them.

The question is: Would you switch to Byron's knowing that you could earn some cash?

This thread is for your thoughts on this subject and NOT that you run "XYZ" fuel and "its awesome!"


Discuss.......

From what I have heard, Bryons is a very good fuel brand.
If my shop were to switch to it I would use it, and would encourage them to switch with their new contingency program.
I think it is good for novices and pros alike as not only do they have the chance to beinfit from the program but they also get the benigits of a great fuel that seams to always be of high quality (from what I have heard).
The fuel I use it OK for me as I don't race, but if I did I would probaly switch to a fuel that offers a contingency program, simply so I get some return on the fuel (and it may even pay for itself!).
I'm not sure what your current fuel brand is, or the quality of it, but I'm sure your customers would be happy to pay a little more (?) for the added beinfits of the quality of the fuel and the chance to enter the contingency program.

i use byron's as well, my shop does carry it and i have a few team drivers in my area. their cont. program does work and i think it's a great program. i know some drivers who made a ggod check by doing well at some of the larger events. even if they didnt have the program i would still use it great fuel.

Hi jimmy!!

I can tell you 100% without a doubt that the byrons contingency pays out !!
I have gotten checks from byrons after the end of the points series races for finishing top ten .

Whether there was a cont. Program in place or not there is no other fuel I would run as byrons fuels are the best , the most precisely blended , top notch lubrications and the best overall package in the business !!


I would say all this about byrons whether I was sponsored or not , top quality products deserve praise .

I have to say contigincy program or not its great fuel. I highly believe its the best fuel for the money on the market today. I am not sponsored or paid to say good things but i have used other fuels and see there price tag and Byrons is by far the best. I wish my LHS carried it so i didnt have to ship it in or pick up at a race.

I've been getting Byron's Race Fuel from Dynamic Hobbies in Hemet for years. They were the only shop I knew relatively near me that carried Byron's plus their prices are pretty good too. Your shop in Winchechster would be a lot closer drive for me to buy fuel. I hope you can beat their price.

I dont have anybody that buys Fuel from me for that reason. The fuel is the best on the market imo and most people just want good fuel.

Bryon's is a good fuel to use, I been using bryon's for a few year's now and it's an excellent lubricant with the oil content I personnally use the 30% with 11% oil in my motors because of lubrication

I do not use afterun oil with Byron fuel, never see any rust in my motors.

I am stoked the X-Fest in Minnesota is on the Contingency list this year!
