Mobil 1 To Stewart Haas Racing Next Season?

Posted By Michael J Smith On August 7, 2010 @ 3:44 pm In Uncategorized | No Comments

In Marty Smith’s Door 2 Door column on  ESPN.com [1], Smith answered a question on Tony Stewart’s sponsorship for next season.

He wrote:

Old Spice’s decision to leave the sport left a financial void at Stewart-Haas Racing. Mobil 1, who will leave Penske Racing at season’s end in the wake of the Shell-to-Kurt-Busch deal, is a likely replacement.

Old Spice decided to leave the team [2] after this season, citing  a “change in our marketing strategies” as the reason. Office Depot will remain with the team next season.

As part of the Shell-Pennzoil-to-Penske-Racing [3]deal, Shell would become the official oil of Penske, meaning Mobil 1 will have to leave the team. ExxonMobil said they would partner with another team next season [4].
