ExxonMobil and NASCAR Partnership

 29th Jan 2013

ExxonMobil and NASCAR® today announced a multi-year partnership extension, making Mobil 1™ the “Official Motor Oil of NASCAR” and “Official Lubricant Technology Partner of NASCAR” through 2017. The 2013 NASCAR season will mark the 11th consecutive season in which the Mobil 1 brand is an official partner of NASCAR, the premier motorsports series in the United States.


Taking the technology partnership into the digital space for the first time, ExxonMobil and NASCAR will explore NASCAR’s world-class automotive technology. 

Using the ‘NASCAR Automotive Technology Center’ online platform, Mobil 1 will deliver automotive technology-related information through original feature stories, photos, videos and other social interactions. Full details on the project are set to be unveiled at a future date.

Today, Mobil 1 is the world’s leading synthetic motor oil brand, a feat in no small part due to it's association with NASCAR’s three national racing series. Rebecca Aldred, the Global Brand Manager for Mobil 1 quotes “As the lubricant technology of champion drivers and race teams, the renewed association between Mobil 1 and NASCAR allows us to engage motorsports fans by leveraging the excitement of racing”. 

“We’re excited about continuing our partnership with ExxonMobil and helping extend the Mobil 1 brand’s rich legacy in our sport,” said Jim O’Connell, Chief Sales Officer, NASCAR. “As an extension of this partnership, both NASCAR and Mobil 1 look forward to engaging fans through new technology platform that promise fans a unique perspective into the technology that drives this sport.”

Mobil 1 racing lubricant technology is chosen by over half of teams competing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The durability and high performance capabilities of Mobil 1 engine oils, gear oils and Mobilith SHC spline shaft grease are endured by rigorous racing conditions on a weekly basis on the NASCAR track.

Mobil 1 motor oils are specifically formulated to meet the demands of modern engines and driving conditions. From stop-and-go driving to extreme hot and cold temperatures and high performance applications, a range of Mobil 1 synthetic motor oils are available to keep engines running like new:

  • Mobil 1 ­ Delivering exceptional performance for vehicles of all ages, Mobil 1 advanced full synthetic motor oil keeps engines running like new by combating sludge, reducing wear and controlling oil breakdown.

The new partnership complements ExxonMobil’s relationship with Stewart-Haas Racing and Tony Stewart’s No. 14 Mobil 1/Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet Impala in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. The ExxonMobil and Stewart-Haas Racing partnership combines experience, expertise and innovative thinking to deliver performance.
