Dale Coyne Racing is pleased to announce that ENEOS, Japan’s leading oil company, has joined its family of partners by becoming the team’s Official Lubricant Supplier.
ENEOS is the brand name for products manufactured by JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy Corp. – the largest oil company in Japan and sixth largest in the world. ENEOS products are among the highest quality lubricants available in the marketplace today.
The products use advanced base oil and additive technology as the result of joint engineering, research and supply to all the major Japanese automotive manufacturers. ENEOS lubricants provide exceptional protection, performance and power for a wide variety of applications, from automobiles to diesel trucks, motorcycles and race cars.
While the company spans the globe, its US-sold products are produced in the United States at a plant near Birmingham, AL.
“We’ve been involved in many different racing series around the world, from Formula DRIFT and NASCAR to MotoGP and Formula One. Our next logical step was to partner with a team in the NTT IndyCar Series, and we’re delighted to have formed this partnership with Dale Coyne Racing as we look to broaden our brand exposure into different markets," said Shinichi Handa, CMO of JX Nippon Oil & Energy USA.
“I’m proud to welcome ENEOS to our team as our Official Lubricant Supplier," added Team Owner Dale Coyne. “Without question, ENEOS is among the best lubricant brands in the world. We look forward to working with them and benefiting from their understanding of high-technology lubricants."
The ENEOS logo will make its first appearance on the Dale Coyne Racing entries at this weekend’s 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500, in which the team’s cars are starting seventh (Sebastien Bourdais #18), 15th (James Davison #33) and 23rd (Santino Ferrucci #19). The race will be broadcast live on NBC from 11am ET, with a pre-race show on NBCSN starting at 9am ET on Sunday May 26, 2019.
