CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Mobil 1 brand announced today that it will begin its fourth consecutive race season as an official technology partner of NASCAR® Green. This year as part of the NASCAR Race to Green™ initiative, the brand will highlight its latest product, Mobil 1TM Annual Protection motor oil, which allows drivers to go one full year – or up to 20,000 miles – between oil changes.
By allowing motorists to drive longer between oil changes, Mobil 1 Annual Protection helps to safely reduce the amount of used oil generated through regular oil changes. In fact, if every driver in the U.S. extended their oil change interval to one full year by using Mobil 1 Annual Protection, this could reduce up to 587 million gallons of used oil.*
“As the Official Motor Oil of NASCAR, we take pride in supporting its green initiatives and helping make an environmental impact,” said Kai Decker, global motorsports manager at ExxonMobil. “We are once again thrilled to support Race to Green this year with Mobil 1 Annual Protection, which helps reduce used oil and enables cars to go longer between oil changes.”
On April 21, Danica Patrick, driver of the No. 10 Ford, will help convert the motor oil on an American Medical Response branded NASCAR safety vehicle at Bristol Motor Speedway to Mobil 1 Annual Protection in recognition of the full NASCAR-owned track safety fleet converting to this cutting edge lubricant. AMR is the “Official Emergency Medical Service Partner of NASCAR®,” providing doctors and paramedics ready to respond immediately to any on-track incident that occurs during a race.
To showcase the low environmental impact of Mobil 1 Annual Protection, the brand has created an infographic that will be unveiled by Patrick. For the weekend’s race fans, the infographic illustrates how much used oil would be saved if every driver in the United States switched to Mobil 1 Annual Protection.
“I am excited to help Mobil 1 support NASCAR Race to Green, an initiative that is so important to our sport and shows how our industry is helping to protect the environment,” said Patrick. “The amount of used oil that can be saved by switching to Mobil 1 Annual Protection is indicative of its sustainability benefits. I’m proud to be a part of this program with NASCAR and Mobil 1.”
The sustainability initiatives of Mobil 1 extend beyond NASCAR Race to Green. Since 2004, ExxonMobil has supported Earth 911 to help consumers with the challenge of properly disposing used oil. Through its website, www.Earth911.com, consumers can find information about reducing, re-using and recycling their used products, and identify nearby locations specifically for used oil collection.
