One of the longest-running NASCAR Cup Series entitlement sponsors will continue to grow its numbers. Quaker State has announced it will extend its partnership with Atlanta Motor Speedway, continuing a 14-year-long run that started at Kentucky Motor Speedway in 2011.

Along with the AMS partnership, Quaker State will also partner with Trackhouse Racing for a technical alliance moving forward. The brand will also sponsor Daniel Suarez’s No. 99 car at Richmond Raceway in April and AMS in July.

“I’m so incredibly blessed to be joined by a company that has such history in the sport,” Suarez said. “Quaker State is such a worldwide brand — its impact in Mexico, and now to have them on my race car is just huge.”

The deal for both Atlanta and Trackhouse is a multi-year deal, according to Suzanne Clerkin, director of consumer marketing at Shell Global Lubricants.

“We are just so excited to be able to continue the long history of Quaker State and NASCAR,” she said.

“Quaker State represents everything we hoped to attract when we started this team,” said Justin Marks, Trackhouse Racing owner.

Both Suarez and Chastain will have Quaker State on the car during the summer Atlanta race, Marks said.

“Quaker State is committed to our team as well as elevating our drivers in unique ways,” Marks said.

Quaker State’s history is legendary in motorsports, including Indycar with Eddie Cheever, NASCAR with Hendrick Motorsports, Tony Pedregon in NHRA and overseas sponsoring Ferrari and other racing series.

“We are very proud to extend our relationship with Atlanta Motor Speedway and SMI,” said Steve Reindl, vice president of Shell Lubricants North America. “This is really a great day for the Quaker State Brand.”

Brandon Hutchinson, the Atlanta Motor Speedway executive vice president and general manager, said fans can expect AMS to deliver incredible race weekend experiences for years to come along with the Quaker State announcement.

“We’re looking forward to our first Quaker State 400 under the lights [this summer],” Hutchinson said. “To have Quaker State back on board for multiple years is great for the race track.”


If it races, I'll write about it, talk about it or shoot it with a camera. I began pursuing a career in motorsports journalism immediately after attending college at Kent State University. I have hosted multiple Motorsports talk shows, worked in Country Music radio, and now i spend every day on the air in the morning with 1300 and 100.9 WMVO and in the afternoons watching the roadways around Central Ohio for 93.7 WQIO. The excitement and the fans make everything I put out there worth while, it's been an exciting 15 years having covered everything from the Daytona 500 to the Rolex 24 and you can find me at pretty much any event run at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. What I like to bring is a look behind the scenes, a look at what and who makes the sport grow. From the guy that welds pieces back at the shop to the host in the tv booth. Everyone has a story and I like to tell it. My main focus here at TPF is looking at the men and women behind the microphone and cameras. My life long goal is to become a member of MRN or PRN Radio and bring the races to you. I hope that what I share now is enjoyable and gives you a unique look in to the world of motorsports. See you at a track soon
