Roush Fenway Racing Team Reinforces Commitment To Winning Responsibly With Complete Shift To Valvoline NextGen™ Recycled Motor Oil

LEXINGTON, Ky. and CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Less than one year after the Valvoline brand introduced a revolutionary recycled motor oil that stands up to racing's demanding standards and high-quality performance, Roush Fenway has decided to switch all its Sprint Cup and Nationwide teams to Valvoline NextGen motor oil technology for the duration of the 2012 NASCAR season. RFR will kick off the shift at the 54 th annual Daytona 500 race on Feb. 26, 2012.

The announcement represents the culmination of a rigorous validation process that began last summer with drivers like Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards, and is a continued illustration of Roush Fenway Racing's commitment to going green on the track while keeping performance paramount.

NextGen motor oil is made of 50 percent recycled motor oil and delivers 100 percent Valvoline quality, offering optimum engine protection in a product that's also better for the environment. "Closing the Loop" – for professional drivers and everyday consumers alike – is a step towards reducing our dependence on foreign crude oil and preserving our existing resources by collecting and returning your used oil for recycling, and then refilling crankcases with NextGen. 

"We couldn't be prouder to have NextGen technology pumping through the engines of the world's elite stock car drivers on the sport's biggest stage at Daytona," said Darryl Gaines, NextGen brand manager at Valvoline. "Having NextGen technology running in all of Roush Fenway's racing engines is just one more way for people to be certain of NextGen quality." 

"The results of last year's NextGen motor oil testing spoke volumes about its possibilities from a performance standpoint," said Jack Roush of co-owner of Roush Fenway Racing. "We are confident that this recycled oil product will stand up to the rigors of our engines and it furthers our sustainability efforts in the process." 

High quality, stand-out performance and environmental benefits have helped make Valvoline NextGen motor oil the fastest-growing product introduction in Valvoline's 140 year-plus history. NextGen innovation combines recycled base oil of the same quality as crude-refined base oil with Valvoline's award-winning additive chemistry. The result is new oil made from recycling that exceeds API specifications and matches Valvoline's stringent standards.
