ExxonMobil to sponsor NASCAR champion Tony Stewart

| November 03, 2010

ExxonMobil signed a multi-year sponsorship agreement with two-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion Tony Stewart and Stewart-Haas Racing beginning in 2011.

“With Mobil 1’s long tradition of partnering with world-class race teams around the globe, we are proud of our new association with one of NASCAR’s top drivers,” said Nigel Searle, vice president marketing, ExxonMobil Lubricants & Petroleum Specialties Company. “We look forward to helping Stewart-Haas Racing secure a Sprint Cup Series championship and add to the list of successful teams that Mobil 1 has supported for more than 30 years.”

Stewart has been one of the most successful Sprint Cup drivers since joining the series in 1999. He has 39 career wins, including championships in 2002 and 2005.

Mobil 1 will serve as the co-primary sponsor of the No. 14 Chevrolet Impala with Office Depot. Mobil 1 will be prominently featured on the hood of Stewart’s car for 11 races, while taking a high-profile associate role in the remaining 25 races, as well as the two non-point races.

In addition, ExxonMobil will provide Mobil 1 lubricant technology and engineering support to Stewart-Haas Racing and Mobil 1 will be an associate sponsor of Ryan Newman’s No. 39 Chevrolet Impala, which is also fielded by Stewart-Haas Racing.

Mobil 1 has been the Official Motor Oil of NASCAR since 2003 and is used by more than 50 percent of the teams in NASCAR’s top-three series.
