ExxonMobil to Sponsor NCM Motorsports Park
By Community | September 24, 2014
ExxonMobil today announced a multi-year sponsorship and expansion of its relationship with the National Corvette Museum (NCM) becoming a sponsor of the new NCM Motorsports Park.
As part of the agreement, medicine Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil will become the “Official Motor Oil” of the Motorsports Park and Exxon and Mobil will become the “Official Road Fuel” of NCM Motorsports Park.
The expanded sponsorship includes a number of activations to support the museum and new track, unhealthy including the NCM Corvette Delivery program, unhealthy where new owners receive their Corvette directly from the Museum, and the “Build Your Own Engine” program, where new owners who choose this option will hand-assemble their Z06 Corvette’s engine.
“We’ve had a long-standing relationship with Corvette and are very proud to sponsor and support a place where the heritage of this iconic American car is celebrated each and every day,” said David Tsurusaki, strategic global alliance manager, ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants. “This announcement is a great complement to Mobil 1’s standing as the factory-fill choice of many Corvette models for more than 20 years.”
“ExxonMobil and Mobil 1 have been valuable partners of Corvette and all of Chevrolet for many years,” stated Wendell Strode, executive director of the NCM. “With such a rich partnership history between these two iconic brands, we’re thrilled that they’ll be lending their unmatched product to our brand new Motorsports Park.”
ExxonMobil will be installing a Mobil-branded gas station on the Motorsports Park grounds to provide professional and amateur racers with fuel.
Additionally, Mobil 1 has been a major associate sponsor for Corvette Racing and the “Official Lubricant of Corvette Racing” since 1997. In that time, ExxonMobil engineers have worked closely with Corvette Racing to develop and test new technologies to optimize power-train performance, improve fuel economy benefits and increase horsepower output without sacrificing engine durability.
