As an official SFHR sponsor and technical partner, Quaker Chemical Corporation seeks to create proprietary greases and lubricants specifically engineered to combat the forces of friction, heat and wear for the unique demands of the Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing Team – including in the car driven by Josef Newgarden in the IndyCar Series and in the car to be driven by Bryan Clauson in the Indy 500.
“This is a great opportunity for Quaker to expand our advanced lubrication technology into the motorsports world," said Joe Berquist, Quaker VP and Managing Director North America. “We believe that both parties will greatly benefit from this exciting partnership; it provides us the opportunity to develop advanced engineered products and services in a real world, highly competitive test environment."
Quaker’s engineers will be working alongside the SFHR technical staff to develop technology for advanced lubrication and greases designed to provide SFHR with an “on- track" advantage in the IZOD IndyCar series. This ongoing research and development technical alliance will allow Quaker to continually develop superior lubrication technology for use within its core industries and customers.
“We proved last year that SFHR can compete against the best in IndyCar racing, and that we can beat the best," said car owner Sarah Fisher. “Like any good team, we are looking for a competitive advantage, and we feel Quaker Chemical Corporation will help us do just that so we can win on a regular basis."
