FAIRFAX, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ExxonMobil Lubricants and Petroleum Specialties today announced that it has expanded the availability of its Mobil 1™ Racing oils by adding three leading racing product distributors.

The inclusion of these new distributors into the Mobil 1 Racing network expands the availability of Mobil 1 Racing oils and provides racers, engine builders and performance shops easier access to the ultimate in racing lubricant technology.

Previously, Mobil 1 Racing oils were available exclusively through and select ExxonMobil distributors. The decision to expand the distributor network is in response to the consistent demand for Mobil 1 technology from grassroots racers nationwide. With additional distributor locations, ExxonMobil can deliver the very best in racing lubricants directly to racers, when and where they need it.

“At ExxonMobil we understand that maximum engine performance is as critically important to grassroots and semi-pro racers as it is to our championship racing teams,” said Rebecca Aldred, Mobil 1 global brand manager, ExxonMobil Lubricants & Specialties. “Now thanks to our new network of distributors, grassroots and semi-pro racers have easier access to the same technology that is used by our championship race teams including Stewart-Haas Racing, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes, and newly-crowned World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship-winning team, Tony Stewart Racing.”

Mobil 1 Racing oils are available in 0W-30 and 0W-50 viscosities and include fully synthetic, race-proven technology which is engineered to deliver maximum performance and protection for a variety of race conditions, including circle track, drag, sprint and road racing. This line of engine oils are designed for on-track use only and are not recommended for general automotive street use.

“ExxonMobil understands that coming in second place isn't an option for our customers,” said Roger Hood, Mobil 1 U.S. motorsports technical advisor, ExxonMobil Lubricants & Specialties. “We believe expanding our distributor network provides racers with easier access to the race-proven technology engineered into the Mobil 1 Racing line of lubricants.”
