Valvoline Inc. Annual National Oilympics Competition


Valvoline Inc’s one-of-a-kind version of the Olympic Games that celebrates service center skill, teamwork and speed. Each summer, Valvoline Instant Oil ChangeSM (VIOC) and Valvoline Great Canadian Oil Change service center teams from across the U.S. and Canada come together to compete to see who can execute a perfect oil change in the fastest time.


Started in VIOC in 1994, the event is now legendary at Valvoline Inc. As our family of brands and store count has grown, so has the competition. Our more than 1,700 Company-owned and Franchised service centers in the U.S. and Canada our invited to compete locally to determine the best-of-the-best team in their market or system. Each send one regional qualifying team to Nationals.


Challenging each other to be great is embedded in our culture. Store technicians complete more than 270 hours of professional training. Oilympics puts that training to the test in a fun, unique way! VIOC store teams master the proprietary service process called SuperPro™. There are 178 steps required to execute the perfect VIOC oil change service experience for our guests. Our senior leadership team serves as judges to time and score each team performing an oil change.


In previous competitions, only one second or point has separated first and second places. The top three teams are awarded bronze, silver and gold medals. Gold medalists also win a huge trophy to keep at their service center and are awarded a Company-paid destination vacation where they can play hard after working hard. In 2023, 36 teams competed for the gold, including the 2022 defending champions from Lexington, Kentucky who placed third this year. Our 2023 winning teams were from Nashville, Tennessee (gold), Richmond, Virginia (silver) and Lexington (bronze).
