ExxonMobil And Toyota Racing Development U.S.A. Extend Lubricant Technology Partnership

Since the 2010 season, TRD-supplied NASCAR engines have been filled with specifically customized synthetic motor oil based on the same technology of Mobil 1 engine oils.

 

FAIRFAX, Va. & CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Underscoring the performance benefits of high-quality motor oil technology, ExxonMobil has renewed its multi-year technological partnership with Toyota Racing Development U.S.A. (TRD). ExxonMobil will continue to provide its Mobil 1 racing oil technology to TRD-supported NASCAR teams.

Since the 2010 season, TRD-supplied NASCAR engines have been filled with specifically customized synthetic motor oil based on the same technology of Mobil 1 engine oils. The TRD-specific Mobil 1 motor oils deliver a unique low-friction synthetic lubricant technology and anti-wear additives to protect and extend the life of engine hardware during high-performance applications, the company states.

“We are excited to renew our partnership with a company that has such deep expertise in racing technology,” said David Wilson, acting president and general manager, TRD, U.S.A. “Mobil 1 experts, utilizing the resources of one of the world’s leading racing oil suppliers, will continue to help ensure that our team’s engines are running at peak performance, ultimately helping us win more races.”

This season alone, teams using TRD-supplied NASCAR engines with Mobil 1 technology have claimed 12 fastest lap times, 12 pole positions and 14 Sprint Cup wins, according to Mobile 1. NASCAR Sprint Cup teams that currently utilize TRD technology with Mobil 1 motor oil include Joe Gibbs Racing and Michael Waltrip Racing.

The extended partnership with TRD complements Mobil 1’s “Official Motor Oil of NASCAR” status and ExxonMobil’s lubricant technology relationship with Stewart-Haas Racing and sponsorship of Tony Stewart’s No. 14 Mobil 1/Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet Impala in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. In NASCAR’s top three series, Mobil 1 racing lubricant technology is chosen by more than 50 percent of race teams for exceptional engine performance and protection.
