CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing Inc. (NASCAR) and ExxonMobil will remain linked, as ExxonMobil renewed a long-standing commitment with NASCAR for its Mobil 1 motor oil and Mobil brand of lubricant products.
The 2009 NASCAR season marks the seventh consecutive season in which Mobil 1 is the "Official Motor Oil of NASCAR" and the Mobil brand of lubricant products are the "Official Lubricants of NASCAR." The new agreement extends that official partnership through the 2012 season.
"Partnering with NASCAR gives us an excellent platform to fully demonstrate our products," Alan Kelly, president of ExxonMobil Lubricants & Petroleum Specialties Co., said in a statement. "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."
The Mobil family of automotive lubricants includes motor oil, transmission fluid, gear lubricants and greases. Used by more than 50 percent of the teams in NASCAR’s top three circuits, Mobil 1 is the world's leading synthetic motor oil and meets the industry’s toughest standards.
"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 of 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."
A long-time supporter of NASCAR racing, 2009 marks Mobil 1's 18th season as a major sponsor of Penske Racing’s NASCAR team. Mobil 1 is the primary sponsor of Sam Hornish Jr. in the #77 Mobil 1 Dodge, an associate sponsor of veteran driver Kurt Busch in the #2 Miller Lite Dodge and an associate sponsor of driver David Stremme in the #12 Alltel Dodge.
