ExxonMobil said it has renewed a long-standing official partnership with NASCAR to keep its Mobil 1 motor oil and Mobil-brand lubricant products as NASCAR’s “Official Motor Oil” and “Official Lubricants.”
The new agreement extends the partnership to 2012.
The 2009 NASCAR season will mark the seventh consecutive season in which Mobil 1 has been the official motor oil of NASCAR, and the Mobil-brand lubricant products are the official lubricants of NASCAR.
"We are excited to extend this relationship with such well known and respected global brands like Mobil 1 motor oil and Mobil lubricants,” said Mike Helton, president at NASCAR. "Race fans know that when using Mobil 1 and Mobil lubricants, they’re getting similar performance benefits as those experienced by the world’s top racing teams.”
An industry leader in the development of innovative, problem-solving lubricants, including synthetics, the Mobil family of automotive lubricants includes motor oil, transmission fluid, gear lubricants and greases. Used by more than 50% of the teams in NASCAR’s top three circuits, race-proven Mobil 1 is the world’s leading synthetic motor oil and meets the industry’s toughest standards, outperforming all conventional oils.
“Partnering with NASCAR gives us an excellent platform to fully demonstrate our products,” said Alan Kelly, president of ExxonMobil Lubricants & Petroleum Specialties Company. “This agreement with NASCAR showcases the engine protection and performance that Mobil 1 delivers for both NASCAR drivers on the track and race fans traveling to the track. Everyone at ExxonMobil is looking forward to another exciting NASCAR season in which Mobil 1 plays such a prominent role.”
A long-time supporter of NASCAR racing, 2009 marks Mobil 1′s 18th season as a major sponsor of Penske Racing’s NASCAR team.
