Promoting sustainability and environmental awareness, Mobil 1 will begin providing lubricant and fuel-efficiency technology expertise to the NASCAR broadcast compound vehicles and power generators.

For the second consecutive season, Mobil 1 – who proudly serves as the Official Lubricant Technology Partner of NASCAR – will support the NASCAR Race to Green initiative as an official program partner.

Building on last year’s conversion of NASCAR’s fleet-and-service vehicles to ExxonMobil’s fuel-efficient motor oils, this year’s support of NASCAR Race to Green will expand to begin offering lubricant technology and engineering counsel to the vehicles and generators of the NASCAR broadcast compound. The broadcast compound consists of 36 generators and 50+ vehicles, including tractor trailers and golf carts.

ExxonMobil fuel-efficient motor oils include Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy, which can help increase engine efficiency and improve fuel economy by up to 2%, and Mobil Delvac 1 LE 5W-30, which is shown to enhance fuel economy potential in heavy-duty diesel engines.

In 2014, as a first-time NASCAR Race to Green partner, Mobil 1 began converting NASCAR’s 65 fleet-and-service vehicles and 16 power generators to Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy or Mobil Delvac 1 LE 5W-30. This collection of vehicles included the Air Titan 2 track-drying systems, which received Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy, as well as several diesel haulers that were converted to Mobil Delvac 1 LE 5W-30.

To broaden Mobil 1’s support of NASCAR Race to Green, Tony Stewart’s No. 14 Mobil 1/Bass Pro Shops Chevy SS will be adorned with a special Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy logo on the vehicle’s rear TV panel during the TOYOTA OWNERS 400 on Saturday, April 25.

“In four seasons working with ExxonMobil, our entire Stewart-Haas Racing team has seen significant efficiency and performance benefits on the race track, helping us to two Sprint Cup Series championships,” said Tony Stewart, driver of the No. 14 Mobil 1 Chevy . “Mobil 1 lending this same lubricant technology expertise to the NASCAR Green program is important as we work to improve sustainability in racing.”
