RFK Racing announced on Thursday that they have extended their partnership with lubricants manufacturer Castrol that will see the company continue to serve as official oil and lubricant supplier for the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season and beyond. The deal will also see Castrol expand their partnership on Brad Keselowski’s No.6 Ford Mustang.
President of RFK Racing Steve Newmark commented on the news saying:
We’re thrilled to continue our relationship with Castrol, as they have been an invaluable partner for our organization in every aspect of our business.. “Their leading, best in class lubricants and technology have helped to improve our performance on the track, leading us back to victory lane this season, along with many other strong runs.
“Off the track, our collaboration around sustainability continues to generate feedback across our sport and beyond. As a team we are dedicated to maintaining our carbon neutral efforts, and take pride in being the first team in our discipline to do so. Castrol has been the driving force behind that program and we’re looking forward to benefitting from their guidance and expertise in 2023 and beyond.”
Chris Buescher’s No. 17 Ford will carry the iconic Castrol colors in three races in 2023, first at Richmond Raceway (April 2) – a track where he finished third at in 2022. He will also carry the Castrol banner at Michigan (Aug. 6) and the Indianapolis Road Course (Aug. 13).
Buescher enters his eighth full season of Cup Series competition in 2023, and comes off the best season of his career with 10 top-10 finishes and the memorable win in the Bristol Night Race. Keselowski embarks on his 14th full season in the NCS in 2023 and second as co-owner and driver at RFK.
