CONCORD, N.C. — Safety-Kleen and its premium refined motor oil brand, EcoPower, have signed a team-wide sponsorship agreement with Roush Fenway Racing.
While EcoPower will be the official oil partner for Roush Fenway Racing, it will also be the primary sponsor for multiple races on the No. 17 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series car driven by Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
“We are pleased to have EcoPower on board as our official oil partner,” said team owner Jack Roush. “The partnership reflects Roush Fenway’s commitment to both sustainability and using highest quality products. EcoPower protects engines and protects the environment.
“We have had great success in our race cars with re-refined oil and we look forward to continuing that success with EcoPower, while promoting environmental responsibility throughout this season and into the future.”
“The environmental benefits of re-refined oils have been rigorously evaluated and proven,” said Curt Knapp, Safety-Kleen executive vice president, marketing and oil re-refining sales. “Fleet operators and consumers want to be absolutely confident that the oil will protect their valuable investment. We can’t think of a stronger, more authentic endorsement for EcoPower than Jack Roush using it in his race cars to achieve peak protection and performance.”
EcoPower re-refined oil helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80 percent. And it requires up to 85 percent less energy to produce than oil made from virgin crude, because it has already been refined.
