At the same time, ExxonMobil will further leverage the star power of SHR drivers by bringing back Kevin Harvick as the face of Mobil 1 Annual Protection motor oil marketing campaign. Mobil 1, the "Official Motor Oil of NASCAR", will provide primary sponsorships across SHR's four NASCAR Cup Series drivers. Harvick's #4 Ford will carry Mobil 1 branding six times, Clint Bowyer's #14 Ford will wear Mobil 1 twice, and Kurt Busch's #41 Ford and Aric Almirola's #10 Ford get one race apiece.

Q) Rodney, you've been in this situation before with the #4 team. Does that help your team at all, and how do you plan to approach this weekend in Miami?

I think it has helped this year just being more prepared, knowing what you need to have done before you leave the shop, and just having all your ducks in a row before you get there.(NASCAR)[See full transcript](11-15-2017)

Kevin Harvick wins at Texas with late-race pass, advances to Championship 4: Martin Truex Jr. isn't invincible after all. Kevin Harvick put a serious dent in Truex's sense of invulnerability on Sunday afternoon, passing Truex with nine laps left in the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway and pulling away to win by 1.580 seconds. In beating this year's unrivaled master of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series' 1.5-mile intermediate speedways, Harvick earned a spot in the Nov. 19 Championship 4 race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, which Harvick won the first title contested under an elimination format in 2014.[More](11-5-2017)

Stewart-Haas Racing could look a bit different in 2018 While #4-Kevin Harvick signed an extension with Stewart-Haas Racing last May, and #14-Clint Bowyer is in the first year of his contract, drivers #41-Kurt Busch and #10-Danica Patrick are not locked in for next season. "Contracts are signed - and expire - at all different times," Haas told motorsport.com. "It's hard to say when one person's contract is going to expire because there are options and things like that. I think that's why they call it silly season. We kind of start looking at what we want to do. The drivers do the same thing. Sponsors do the same thing. In order for all the pieces to fall into place, you have to take all three parties - you've got to take the drivers, the owners and the sponsors and see if you can't align all the stars up and get them to agree on something." Haas has no plans of eliminating any of his four Cup squads.(Motorsportts.com)[Read More Here](7-4-2017)

Harvick sweeps Sonoma weekend with Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Kevin Harvick won Saturday afternoon's NASCAR K&N Pro Series West event at Sonoma Raceway That was like taking candy from babies. But Harvick mixed it up with the big boys in Sunday's Toyota/Save Mart 350, and the outcome was the same. Executing an ideal strategy for the long green-flag run that consumed the second half of the race-minus roughly 200 yards-Harvick won a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series event for the first time this season, the first time at Sonoma and the first time in a Ford, after Stewart-Haas Racing made an offseason switch from Chevrolet. In winning for the 36th time in 590 career starts, Harvick took the checkered flag under caution after Kasey Kahne's Chevrolet clobbered the concrete Jersey barriers near the start/finish line. By then, Harvick had a comfortable lead of more than eight seconds-and just enough fuel in the tank of the #4 Ford Fusion to complete a celebratory burnout on the frontstretch. "I'm so excited," Harvick said in Victory Lane. "I think, as you look at it, getting our first win with Ford, this has been a great journey for us as an organization and team. (Teammate) Kurt (Busch) winning the Daytona 500, and we have run well. It's a great day. It finally all came together, and we were able to not have any cautions there at the end. Rodney had great strategy, and I was able to take care of the car and get out front. I felt like the 78 (Martin Truex Jr.) was the car we had to race, and then he had problems and from there we were in control." Five drivers made their Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series debuts on Sunday. Subbing for injured Aric Almirola, Billy Johnson ran 22nd in the #43 Richard Petty Motorsports Ford. Israeli driver Alon Day was 32nd, Kevin O'Connell 33rd, Tommy Regan 34th and Josh Bilicki 36th.(NASCAR Wire Service)[Read More Here](6-25-2017)

Jimmy John's Renews with Stewart-Haas Racing: Jimmy John's, the "freaky fast" gourmet sandwich chain since 1983, has extended its partnership with Stewart-Haas Racing in a multiyear agreement to continue as a primary sponsor of driver Kevin Harvick and the #4 team in the NASCAR Premier Series. Jimmy John's will be the primary sponsor of Harvick and the #4 team for 16 races in 2017, highlighted by the season-opening Daytona 500. For the remaining 22 races on the Premier Series schedule, Jimmy John's will serve as a major associate sponsor of the #4 entry.
"We are fortunate to partner with Kevin for many years in a very meaningful way," said Jimmy John Liautaud, owner and founder of Jimmy John's. "On and off the track, Kevin and (wife) DeLana Harvick are winners in all they do, and Stewart-Haas Racing has proven to be an excellent home for them and for Jimmy John's."
From humble beginnings in Charleston, Illinois, in 1983, Jimmy John's has grown to become a dominant entity in the quick-service restaurant industry. With more than 2,600 stores throughout the United States, Jimmy John's success is attributed to an innate desire to simply be the best. Its award-winning bread is baked fresh each day, and its meat and vegetables are sliced fresh daily. Its food contains no additives and no vegetable-based fillers. Augmenting the company's unmatched product is equally unmatched service, with every sandwich made fresh-to-order.
"I've known Jimmy since 2009 and I've personally seen how driven he is and how his work ethic is embraced by Jimmy John's franchise owners," said Harvick, the 2014 Premier Series champion. "He wants to be the best, period. And he'll out-work everyone to be the best. That's the same mindset we have in racing. I'm proud to continue this partnership with Jimmy John's at Stewart-Haas Racing."
"Jimmy's passion for quality products and service has made Jimmy John's what it is today," said Stewart, the three-time Premier Series champion who co-owns SHR with industrialist Gene Haas. "He's a savvy marketer who has seen the benefit of a NASCAR team sponsorship. We're pleased to continue our partnership with Jimmy John's because combining quality with quickness is what Stewart-Haas Racing is all about."(SHR)(12-1-2016)

ExxonMobil and Stewart-Haas Racing Extend Partnership with Multi-Year Deal: ExxonMobil announced it will be extending the Mobil 1 brand's sponsorship of Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) in a multi-year deal. Beginning next year, Mobil 1, the "Official Motor Oil of NASCAR," will provide full primary sponsorships across SHR's four NASCAR premier series drivers. Kevin Harvick's #4 car, Danica Patrick's #10, Clint Bowyer's #14 and Kurt Busch's #41 will see Mobil 1 full primaries at various NASCAR premier series races throughout the year. At the same time, the Mobil 1 brand will remain an associate sponsor for all SHR drivers at all other races. "ExxonMobil and Mobil 1 lubricant technology have been integral to my success with SHR and my 2014 Championship, so I'm excited they're coming back," said Harvick. "I'm also honored to step in as the lead representative for the Mobil 1 brand both on and off the track."
Tony Stewart, who has represented Mobil 1 since the brand joined SHR in 2011, is retiring as a NASCAR driver at the end of the 2016 season. He will remain a brand ambassador for Mobil 1 in his role as a team owner, as he co-owns SHR with industrialist Gene Haas, founder of Haas Automation. Additionally, the Mobil 1 brand will be an associate sponsor of SHR's new NASCAR XFINITY Series for the 2017 season, where Cole Custer will run for rookie of the year. The company has been providing lubricant technology support to the team since 2011, which helped Stewart and Harvick earn premier series championships for SHR in 2011 and 2014, respectively.
"With two championships already, our partnership with Stewart-Haas Racing has been pushing performance limits since day one. Finishing this year and going into 2017, we're ready to add more wins and titles to the collection," said Kai Decker, global motorsports manager at ExxonMobil. "Our engineers are continuously working to advance our lubricant technology and SHR plays a large role in how we test our engine lubricants - ensuring consumers and race fans are getting the best product available."
After announcing the partnership in 2010, SHR and Mobil 1 engineers began working closely together to tackle racing challenges. The 2017 season continues a collaborative engineering relationship used to develop lubricant packages and push technology limits to new frontiers. This relationship helps the SHR team win races and ExxonMobil continue to improve the performance of Mobil 1 branded lubricants with improved power, fuel mileage, engine efficiency and reliability.
"We're thrilled to continue our partnership with ExxonMobil for the 2017 race season and beyond," Stewart said. "They've been an incredible partner. "The success we've achieved has been greatly helped by Mobil 1 lubricant technology and our engineers working hand in hand with their engineers."
Including the 2016 season, the partnership with ExxonMobil has led to significant on-track success for SHR, compiling two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series titles, 34 race wins, 140 top-five finishes, 266 top-10 finishes and 28 poles.
Along with its association with SHR, Mobil 1 is entering its 15th year as the "Official Motor Oil of NASCAR." Mobil 1 is used by more than 50 percent of the teams in NASCAR's top-three series.(ExxonMobil PR)(10-7-2016)

The multiyear agreement means that, beginning with Daytona Speedweeks in February 2017, the four-car Stewart-Haas Racing team will race the Ford Fusion with Ford engines prepared by Roush Yates Engines.
"We are thrilled to be able to add a championship-level team like Stewart-Haas Racing to our Ford NASCAR program," said Raj Nair, executive vice president and Chief Technical Officer, Ford Motor Company. "Tony Stewart and Gene Haas have the same passion for winning that we do, and bring a strong stable of drivers and personnel that fit into what we're trying to do in the sport."
"We have said very clearly that we are not in NASCAR just to race, but to win races and championships," said Dave Pericak, global director, Ford Performance. "We believe the addition of Stewart-Haas Racing in 2017 will give our program a major boost in terms of being in contention for both drivers' and manufacturers' championships every year.
"We believe that our NASCAR engineering experience and tools match up very well with the expertise and personnel that Stewart-Haas Racing has in house right now, and that we will both benefit from this partnership going forward."
Stewart-Haas Racing will join a Ford NASCAR lineup for 2017 that includes Team Penske, Roush Fenway Racing, Wood Brothers Racing, Richard Petty Motorsports and Front Row Motorsports. Roush Yates Engines is Ford's technical partner for NASCAR race engines.

AND: Stewart-Haas Racing, winners of two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championships and 30 point-paying races, will campaign Ford Fusions beginning in 2017. The four-car team will compete with Ford engines prepared by Roush Yates Engines.
"I am proud of our association with Chevrolet as they helped build our organization into the team it is today," said Tony Stewart, co-owner, Stewart-Haas Racing. "This new partnership with Ford allows us to strengthen our position in the sport and ensure the long-term stability and success for everyone who is a part of Stewart-Haas Racing."
"Motorsports is an extremely challenging environment where in order to maintain success you have to constantly innovate. It's true in NASCAR and it's true in business," said Gene Haas, co-owner, Stewart-Haas Racing. "We've enjoyed great success with Chevrolet, but this opportunity with Ford allows us to evolve while continuing to compete at the highest levels of the sport."
"From the very beginning of Stewart-Haas Racing we have fostered an environment of competitiveness, performance, teamwork and family," said Brett Frood, team president. "This future partnership enables us to continue delivering across these silos and exceed our commitments to our fans, partners and employees."(Stewart-Haas Racing)
