ap72 Guys, it could be three years of just driving it on and off a trailer. I would pop the pan off though and check the pump, pickup, and bearings.

Race car engine? 3 years trouble free? I'd say pull it and go through it! I build + race and go through them during the week to run the next week end let alone 3 years, You got a lot of life out of a race engine unless you haven't accumulated any hours on it over 3 yrs or 3 race seasons.

oil pressre

Do not run the engine any more till you have taken down the oil pan and verify that the oil pick up tube has not fallen/broke off. bearing damage etc. you already know it's not the gauge.Had the pick up break free on one my race engine years ago and it was expensive!!!!
