Sponsoring a winning team
Mobil 1™, the Official Motor Oil of NASCAR®, provides full primary sponsorships on all four SHR premier series cars at various NASCAR premier series races throughout the year. Race fans can see full Mobil 1 sponsorships on:
- Kevin Harvick’s No. 4 car
- Aric Almirola’s No. 10 car
- Clint Bowyer’s No. 14 car
- Kurt Busch’s No. 41 car
The Mobil 1 brand is also an associate sponsor for all SHR drivers at all other races. Since 2011, ExxonMobil has been providing lubricant technology support to the SHR team, which helped drivers Tony Stewart and Kevin Harvick earn premier series championships for SHR in 2011 and 2014.
“ExxonMobil and Mobil 1 lubricant technology have been integral to my success with SHR and my 2014 championship. I’m honored to step in as the lead representative for the Mobil 1 brand both on and off the track.”
– Kevin Harvick, driver of the No. 4 car
Tony Stewart, who has represented Mobil 1 since the brand joined SHR in 2011, retired as a NASCAR driver at the end of the 2016 season. He remains a Mobil 1 brand ambassador in his role as a team owner, as he co-owns SHR with industrialist Gene Haas, founder of Haas Automation. Additionally, the Mobil 1 brand is an associate sponsor of SHR’s NASCAR XFINITY Series, where driver Cole Custer is behind the wheel.
The Mobil 1 team and SHR: A collaborative effort
After announcing the partnership in 2010, SHR and Mobil 1 engineers began working closely together to tackle racing challenges; the partnership between the Mobil 1 brand and SHR has never been just a logo on a car.
"With two championships already, our partnership with Stewart-Haas Racing has been pushing performance limits since day one. We’re ready to add more wins and titles to the collection. Our engineers are continuously working to advance our lubricant technology and SHR plays a large role in how we test our engine lubricants – ensuring consumers and race fans are getting the best product available."
– Kai Decker, global motorsports manager at ExxonMobil
This season continues a collaborative engineering relationship used to create lubricant packages and push technology limits. This relationship helps the SHR team win races and ExxonMobil improve the quality of Mobil 1™-branded lubricant products with improved fuel mileage, engine efficiency and reliability.
A successful partnership: "Smoke" says it best
The partnership with ExxonMobil has led to significant on-track success for SHR, compiling two NASCAR Cup Series championships, more than 45 race wins, more than 200 top-five finishes and more than 400 top-10 finishes.
"[SHR is] thrilled to continue [its] partnership with ExxonMobil for the 2017 race season and beyond. They’ve been an incredible partner. The success we’ve achieved has been greatly helped by Mobil 1 lubricant technology and our engineers working hand in hand with their engineers."
– Tony "Smoke" Stewart, co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing
In addition to ExxonMobil’s successful partnership with SHR, Mobil 1 is in its 16th year as the Official Motor Oil of NASCAR. And Mobil 1™ advanced full synthetic motor oil is used by more than 50 percent of all NASCAR teams.
