IT’S 400 MILES OF HIGH-OCTANE EXCITEMENT
And we’re keeping it that way. We're not ones for big, fancy marketing, so when we decided to sponsor a NASCAR race we chose one like us: tough and hard working. Each year, the motor oil known for durability puts its name behind the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway. Some of the hardest working names in the sport have earned their place in Victory Lane, including Kyle Busch, no. 18, in 2011 and 2015; Brad Keselowski, no. 2 in 2012, 2014 and 2016; and Matt Kenseth, no. 20 in 2013.
But the Quaker State 400 isn't just a test of toughness––it's a celebration of those who love speed. NASCAR boasts some of the sporting world's most dedicated fans and our race is for them. Each year we bring NASCAR fans a behind-the-scenes look at all the action on the track, so whether you're sitting with us in the stands at Kentucky Speedway or watching from home, you're part of the Quaker State 400.
ONE FOR THE BOOKS.
That’s a wrap for the 2017 Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway. We witnessed Tommy Pike rev his coveted 2017 Camaro SS for all to hear. Then, we were treated to a walk around of two classic West Coast lowriders courtesy of Joe Ray from Lowrider Magazine. Afterwards, we got to cast away with the Quaker State FLW Anglers Jimmy Houston, Matt Arey and Scott Canterbury. We kicked back with former NASCAR crew chief Larry McReynolds all weekend. Best of all, Quaker State announced the continuation of our partnership with Kentucky Motor Speedway, the toughest track on the circuit, for another five years.
All that fanfare will go down as the first course for an instant classic. The best fans in NASCAR got to experience an over-time shoot out at Kentucky Speedway after a late caution with two laps to go. It all ended with Martin Truex Jr. taking home the hardware and bringing the No. 78 car to Victory Lane.
All in all, It was one damn good weekend. Here’s why you should join the fun in 2018 and beyond.
