All Eyes Were on Joey Logano and Leah Pritchett as They Took on the
Shell Pioneering Performance Stage at 2018 SEMA Show

Houston – October 31, 2018. At the 2018 SEMA Show, Joey Logano, Leah Pritchett and Pennzoil executives showcased the brand’s newest ad campaign, ‘My Car’. The Campaign, features professional motorsports drivers who have Made the Switch and rely on Pennzoil Synthetics for protection and performance in their cars, cars that share similar needs to the average daily drivers. The My Car campaign features Pennzoil motorsports drivers, Daytona 500 winning Joey Logano, record-setting NHRA Top Fuel dragster driver Leah Pritchett, and three-time Indy 500 champion Helio Castroneves, in a collection of professional series bringing to life how the relationship between a motorsports team and motor oil goes well beyond a paint-out.

“Through the My Car campaign, we demonstrate the unique relationship Pennzoil has in supporting our sponsored drivers and their vehicles from Team Penske and Don Schumacher Racing,” said Patty Lanning, Vice President of Shell Lubricants North America Marketing. “In racing, tenths of a second make the difference, so every bit of performance counts and that’s why these motorsports athletes rely on Pennzoil Synthetics for the confidence they need to help them get ahead and stay ahead on and off the track.”

From the 200MPH speeds that Joey reaches in his cup car, the extreme accelerations Leah pushes her vehicle to, and the demanding driving conditions Helio races his car in to your daily driver – Pennzoil Synthetics is the common denominator.

“This is the first time that Pennzoil is bringing our professional drivers together from multiple motorsports disciplines,” said Patty Lanning. “The My Car campaign reinforces that if Joey Logano, Leah Pritchett and Helio Castroneves feel confident behind the wheel with Pennzoil Synthetics under the hood, so can you.”

The partnerships provide Pennzoil with the ability to test existing and new motor oil technology, developed by Pennzoil’s industry leading scientists and engineers, to gain insights from the track that translate directly into the formulation of its consumer motor oils. Pennzoil continues to push the advancement of its motor oil technology and develop formulations to help maximize ultimate performance and engine reliability for the team throughout the race seasons.
