DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — NASCAR announced a multi-year agreement to renew its official partnership with Safety-Kleen on Wednesday.
Safety-Kleen is among several companies renewing their commitment to NASCAR. The company will continue as the official environmental services supplier of NASCAR.
The news comes amidst NASCAR’s second-annual NASCAR Race to Green initiative, which informs teams, tracks, drivers, NASCAR partners and fans about the theme of protecting and preserving the environment.
Safety-Kleen, an official NASCAR partner since 2004, provides on-site trackside support with its cleaning products and through its oil recycling and re-refining services at more than 200 NASCAR-sanctioned races a year.
“Safety-Kleen’s efforts each and every race weekend have greatly contributed to NASCAR owning the largest recycling program in sports,” said Norris Scott, NASCAR’s vice president of partnership marketing. “Simply stated, Safety-Kleen has been a staple in our sport for years, and we are thrilled to extend our official partnership.”
Safety-Kleen became a founding partner of NASCAR Green at the inception of the platform in 2008. Since entering the sport, Safety-Kleen has collected enough race-used oil to power the Empire State Building for more than an entire year. In 2013, Safety-Kleen collected and re-refined more than 200,000 gallons of NASCAR oil at tracks and team shops.
