Science and Engineering Working Hand-In-Hand

Shell scientists work hand-in-hand with Doug Yates and the engineers at Roush Yates Engines to co-engineer special racing oils for the high-powered engines that go into Team Penske's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR XFINITY Series race cars.

The extreme test bed of the NASCAR track helps Shell scientists optimize the special formulation of Pennzoil racing oil that Joey Logano uses to win race in his No. 22 Pennzoil Platinum Ford Fusion. What's even more exciting is that this knowledge, gained at the track, is used to develop the next generation of high quality products for our customers.

I love engines. I love the technology.

00:10

But it's all about what happens on a Sunday.

00:18

In racing you win with advantages,

00:20

and working hand in hand with Pennzoil, we've created advantages

00:23

with our engine for their team.

00:26

-...and then obviously the team's asking us to run harder and harder.

00:29

-Yeah, that's always a challenge.

00:31

We push the engine to its limits and find its weak points,

00:34

and we go back to the drawing board and re-engineer

00:36

and work with the engineers at Pennzoil

00:38

to come up with a better oil or a better component.

00:42

The technology that goes into the engine oil in the NASCAR

00:46

is a unique product.

00:48

It's unique to Team Penske.

00:51

We custom develop the oil to give us that balance

00:55

of the durability and performance.

01:01

The PurePlus Technology allows us

01:03

to do things differently with our engines than a normal oil would.

01:07

The result has been since 2013 we have 48 wins,

01:11

36 poles and three Xfinity Owner Championships.

01:14

When you come out of the box and you win the Daytona 500

01:17

and then you win the Indy 500...

01:18

...those are the two crown jewels that we're racing for every year.

01:22

The partnership with Team Penske, Pennzoil and Roush Yates

01:25

and Ford Performance truly is a word-class race team.
