ExxonMobil Lubricants & Petroleum Specialties Company, a division of Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE: XOM), today announced that the team behind Mobil Delvac heavy-duty diesel engine oils will sponsor the National Tractor Pullers Association (NTPA), America’s most competitive truck and tractor pulling circuit, for the 2012 season. The partnership gives Mobil Delvac a unique brand presence at more than 80 NTPA Grand and Super National events across the country.
Based in Worthington, Ohio, the NTPA is the oldest and most respected sanctioning body of truck and tractor pulling competition. The season kicks off on Friday, May 18, in Pinetops, N.C., and closes on Sunday, October 14, in Raleigh, N.C. Mobil Delvac previously sponsored a 2010 NTPA tour stop at the Budweiser Dairyland Super National in Tomah, Wis.
“Partnering with the National Tractor Pullers Association is a natural fit for the Mobil Delvac brand,” said Marci Crigger, lubricants marketing advisor, ExxonMobil Lubricants & Petroleum Specialties. “The NTPA has some of the most enthusiastic motorsports fans in the country and many of those fans, and the competitors, own and operate diesel powered trucks and equipment that they use on a daily basis.”
Whether on the road or on the job site, the proven performance of Mobil Delvac is designed for heavy duty application use in all types of diesel powered trucks and equipment to deliver long engine life—from big Class 8 trucks to heavy farming equipment and powerful diesel pickups. In fact, Mobil Delvac is the only 15W-40 viscosity heavy duty motor oil chosen by GM for their Dealer Oil Program.“Truck and tractor pulling is a sport enjoyed by working men and women across the country, and many of our NTPA fans and competitors rely on diesel powered trucks and equipment for their everyday livelihood,” said Greg Randall, general manager, National Tractor Pullers Association. “Mobil Delvac is a brand NTPA fans can rely on to provide dependable engine performance and we are thrilled to have the Mobil Delvac team on board for the 2012 season.”
