From the high banks of
Talladega to the hallowed grounds of
Indianapolis, from the dirt of Knoxville
to the flat quarter-mile at Pomona, plus
every other short track across America,
the bright Pennzoil yellow is as familiar
to race fans as tire smoke, speed and
excitement. In 1999, Pennzoil's
motorsports plans are as big as ever,
bringing new faces to a growing family of
like auto racing," said Tom Floyd,
senior vice president, lubricants
marketing for Pennzoil-Quaker State
Company. "It makes sense for us to
make our customers happy, but we also
like the competition on the track, where
we can show the quality of Pennzoil®
brands. The commitment to the country’s
most spectacular spectator sport from the
maker of America’s No. 1-selling motor
oil is unprecedented in 1999. And I think
our customers will like who we've added
to our team."
Race fans probably best
know Pennzoil’s involvement on the
NASCAR Winston Cup Circuit with Steve
Park and his Dale Earnhardt Inc.
teammates. After sitting out several
months in 1998 due to an injury, Park
returned to the #1 Pennzoil Monte Carlo
late in the season to resume his rise
from NASCAR's Modifieds and Busch Series.
Park is ready to show the world his and
his second-year team's ability.
Park will have a new
teammate for five races in 1999, and
Pennzoil adds a new face to its family of
drivers as Dale Earnhardt, Jr., with the
backing of The Outlaw® fuel additive
brand as an associate sponsor, begins his
assault on the Winston Cup series.
Earnhardt, Jr., winner of the 1998 Busch
Series title, will race a full Winston
Cup schedule in 2000.
The Dale Earnhardt Inc.
team is joined in the Pennzoil stable by
Joe Gibbs Racing in 1999, as the latter
carries Gumout® -- Pennzoil's sister
brand of automotive chemicals -- on the
Winston Cup cars of Bobby Labonte and
Tony Stewart, the Busch series car driven
by Labonte and J.D. Gibbs, and NHRA cars
of Cruz Pedregon and Corey McClenathan.
Pennzoil® is now the official motor oil
of Joe Gibbs Racing.
Speed Association driver Jimmy Johnson
carries the Pennzoil colors in that
Midwestern oval racing series in 1999.
Johnson is one of the bright young stars
of the sport, sure to make headlines soon.
In open-wheel racing,
Scott Goodyear and his Pennzoil Panther
Racing team return for a second year
after finishing fourth in the 1998 Indy
Racing League point standings. In drag
racing, Eddie Hill drives the Pennzoil
Top Fuel car in the NHRA. The Pennzoil
drag racing lineup also includes Mike
Ferderer, Mike Thomas, Bill Kent and
Bruce Allen. Pennzoil also has two NHRA
Jr. Dragsters driven by sisters Erica and
Pennzoil’s role in
motorsports is more than just as a team
sponsor. Pennzoil® became the official
motor oil of the Indianapolis 500® in
1996 and has been one of five corporate
sponsors of the Brickyard 400® since its
inaugural race in 1994. Pennzoil also
serves as the series sponsor for the
Pennzoil World of Outlaws and is the
official motor oil of the Indy Racing
League, the United States Auto Club,
Indianapolis Motor Speedway and New
Hampshire International Speedway.
