ValvoMax: Mike Burns Named a 2022 SEMA GEN III Innovator of the Year Finalist

I Dream of GENIII

ValvoMax CEO Mike Burns has been named one of the three finalists for the 2022 SEMA GEN III Innovator of the Year. That’s a big nod to his work and the ValvoMax Quick Twist Valve that makes oil changes a lot easier. The award will be presented at the SEMA Industry Awards Banquet on Thursday, November 3rd, at 7PM in the Westgate Paradise Event Center.

The GEN-III Innovator of the Year recognizes a young, entrepreneurial individual, 40 years old or younger, who is creating new innovative breakthroughs within the area(s) of industry opportunities, advancement, best business practices, technology and/or trends.

ValvoMax’s Quick Twist Valve lets you drain oil in 10 minutes or less. The stainless steel valve replaces your existing oil drain bolt. It also eliminates the need for tools and leaves no mess behind. Each kit comes with a valve, steel cap with embedded rubber seal, drain tube assembly, and aluminum crush washer for installation.
