Mobil 1™ – Technology partner of TRD
Toyota Racing Development (TRD) relies on Mobil 1™-branded engine oil, chassis lubricants and gear oils to help its race teams in multiple programs worldwide compete and win championships.
TRD teams using Mobil 1 lubricants have captured multiple championships, including the 2015 NASCAR® Sprint Cup Series championship with Kyle Busch, and the 2017 NASCAR® Monster Energy Cup championship with Martin Truex Jr. behind the wheel. In fact, Mobil 1 motor oil is the only motor oil approved for TRD’s Monster Energy Cup Series’ engine program.
Official Technology Partner
In 2010, TRD named the Mobil 1 brand an Official Technology Partner to apply lessons learned on the track to help improve the performance engines in Toyota race cars and trucks across its racing programs. The relationship continues today and experiences are leveraged by both partners to help maximize engine efficiency and improve laps times, including those for the Generation-8 Toyota Camry driven in the NASCAR® Cup Series and the Toyota Tundra in the NASCAR® Gander Outdoors Truck Series.
TRD also competes in United States Auto Club (USAC) racing using Mobil 1 lubricants.
