Valvoline Inc.'s Oilympics is a nod to the world Olympic games and included 39 regional Valvoline Inc. service center teams from across the U.S. and Canada that competed to perform a perfect quick lube service experience in the quickest time. Teams competed locally to secure a spot at the international Oilympics competition, representing the top 1% of all Valvoline service center technicians. While speed is a factor just like in the Olympics, quality of the service delivery ultimately determines gold, silver, and bronze spots on the podium.

The tradition began in 1994 and has grown into an international competition to include Valvoline Inc.'s 1,900-plus company-owned and franchised service centers in North America under the Valvoline Instant Oil Change and Great Canadian Oil Change retail brands.
