Mobil 1™ – Official Motor Oil of NASCAR®

The Mobil 1™ team driving three wide

Top-notch performance on the track means pushing limits. Custom racing engines need to endure high RPM and operating temperatures, so they require specially formulated, advanced motor oils. It’s a big reason why Mobil 1 is the Official Motor Oil of NASCAR® and more than half of all NASCAR® teams use Mobil 1 motor oils for proven performance in the most extreme conditions.

The Mobil 1™ team ran three wide for Pocono. Filmed at Stewart-Haas Racing headquarters in Charlotte, N.C., this video provides a unique behind-the-scenes look at the wrapping of the No. 4, No. 10 and No. 14 Chevrolets with Mobil 1™ primaries as they are prepped for the Pennsylvania 400 at the Pocono Raceway (aka the "Tricky Triangle").

Full tilt from start to finish line
Mobil 1 Racing™ oils are engineered to deliver outstanding power output while boosting levels of wear protection in a wide range of engine applications. More than 30 years of collaboration with some of the top motorsports teams in the world have helped ExxonMobil develop motor oils that meet the demands of numerous racing series.

In NASCAR®, a single race can keep 43 stock cars running at full throttle for 500 miles. That’s a serious test of the engine’s motor oil, which further illustrates why you can find Mobil 1 lubricants in so many NASCAR® vehicles.

Tony Stewart isn’t just blowing smoke
Mobil 1 NASCAR driver Tony "Smoke" Stewart knows a thing or two about winning. He’s captured three NASCAR Sprint Cup championships, an Indy Racing League championship and a USAC Triple Crown championship.

So he’s understandably excited about having Mobil 1 as a primary team sponsor: "It's fun having [Mobil 1] on board from the standpoint that we’re always going to be on the cutting edge of technology. And the fact that they just don’t stop; they don’t say, 'This is good enough.' They always are looking [for ways] to make things faster, how to make them more efficient ... It’s cool to have the technology added to what we do."

Winners like an edge
Racers from NASCAR® to grassroots and beyond believe in the unique properties of Mobil 1 oils. And the full synthetic lubricant technology of Mobil 1 Racing oils have proven their mettle on the track by helping to:

  • Maximize horsepower during race conditions
  • Reduce friction
  • Deliver outstanding wear protection – even under high loads and temperatures

NASCAR® teams know that Mobil 1 oils can help support exceptional engine performance while enduring the punishment of a long race. In NASCAR®, the difference between first and second place can be measured by the blink of an eye. Winning teams work hard to gain every advantage, and the Mobil 1™ NASCAR® team is no exception.
