Premium synthetic lubricant manufacturer Royal Purple announced today the addition of separate car and truck classes for its third annual Show It Off at SEMA contest.

The truck portion of the contest will be hosted on the Royal Purple Inc. Facebook Fan Page, with entries accepted August 1 – 8.

Royal Purple will announce the winning car on September 6 on the Royal Purple Inc. Facebook fan page.
