American cars and trucks use over 3 billion quarts of motor oil annually – and at least 800 million quarts are not disposed of properly. Using NextGen helps ensure used oil doesn't find its way into our water supply, where it can have a myriad of harmful effects; just one gallon of improperly disposed motor oil can contaminate up to one million gallons of drinking water. Compared to production of non-recycled motor oil, NextGen's recycled oil content is produced using 48 percent less fossil fuels, 40 percent less harmful and acidic emissions, and has 20 percent less global warming impact.
NextGen's debut in the Sprint Cup Series is a journey that started last summer when NextGen's racing formulation was put through extensive validation testing by Roush Yates Engines, earning approval from some of motorsports' top teams. Roush Fenway Racing, home of Carl Edwards, Greg Biffle and Matt Kenseth, started using NextGen recycled motor oil technology in competition to protect the engines of their stock cars.
"In some cases NextGen formulas actually outperformed our non-recycled racing oil," said Doug Yates, co-owner of Roush Yates Engines and one of the foremost engine experts. "First and foremost, we are tuned in closely to performance, and there is no sacrifice with NextGen."
With NextGen making the grade in the lab and on the track, our motorsports partners continued to incorporate the technology in an ever-increasing number of vehicles throughout the 2011 season. And it turns out that "going green" translated to winning on the speedway and for the environment, with Nationwide Series wins from Carl Edwards (Great Clips 300, Atlanta GA; 5-Hour Energy 200 in Dover, DE; Dollar General 300 Miles of Courage, Charlotte, NC) and Trevor Bayne (O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge, Ft. Worth, TX) using NextGen recycled motor oil technology under the hood.Roush Fenway is no stranger to "green" practices. In fact, running NextGen technology in its vehicles is just one aspect of its sustainable operations.
