DALLAS -- April 4, 2014

Beginning this April, ExxonMobil will begin converting NASCAR’s 65
fleet-and-service vehicles (and 16 generators) to Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel
Economy and Mobil Delvac 1 LE 5W-30. As part of this effort, ExxonMobil -- the
company behind Mobil 1™, the Official Lubricant Technology Partner of NASCAR^®
-- has been named an official partner of the NASCAR RACE TO GREEN™ initiative.

“Leveraging our industry-leading technology and engineering resources, we’re
proud to offer NASCAR some of the most innovative lubricant and specialty
products and services that help deliver tangible performance- and
sustainability-related benefits,” said Artis Brown, global motorsports manager
at ExxonMobil. “Our line of advanced lubricating oils and greases can help
increase equipment operating efficiency and engine fuel economy, and help
contribute to reduced energy and resource use, lower emissions, and cost
savings for industrial equipment and machinery, as well as passenger and
commercial vehicle engines.”

To kick-off the partnership, Tony Stewart – driver of the No. 14 Mobil 1/Bass
Pro Shops Chevrolet SS – and NASCAR officials will introduce the engines of
select vehicles to ExxonMobil engine oils at Texas Motor Speedway on Friday,
April 4, just before that weekend’s Duck Commander 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup
Series race.

  *Showcasing the road car accompaniment to his No. 14 Chevy, Stewart will
    ceremoniously top-off a 2014 Chevrolet SS with Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel
  *Michael Lynch, vice president of Green Innovation for NASCAR,  will
    ceremoniously fill an Air Titan 2 track-drying system with Mobil 1
    Advanced Fuel Economy and one of NASCAR’s hauler trucks with Mobil Delvac
    1 LE 5W-30.

“ExxonMobil has been an exemplary official partner, especially when
considering their expertise in lubricant technology,” said Michael Lynch, vice
president of Green Innovation for NASCAR. “Having their support for our RACE
TO GREEN program makes our green efforts that much more impactful, while
affording us the chance to utilize even more of their premium products for our
vehicle fleet.”

To finish the weekend, on Sunday, April 6, Tony Stewart will pilot a No. 14
Mobil 1/Bass Pro Chevy SS with special Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy branding
on the vehicle’s rear panel.

“After working with ExxonMobil lubricant engineers for three seasons, I’ve
seen first-hand how well they know the value of engine oils to fuel
economy—whether it’s for me on the track or for consumers driving to and from
the track,” said Stewart. “Since Stewart-Haas Racing and Mobil 1 began our
relationship, the entire SHR team has seen improved fuel mileage, resulting in
our drivers being able to go longer between pit stops.”

Designed for gasoline-fueled vehicles, Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy is
engineered with a proprietary blend of high performance synthetic basestocks
fortified with a precisely balanced component additive system. The low
viscosity, advanced full synthetic formulation helps to increase engine
efficiency and can improve fuel economy*. Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy
provides the high-temperature protection of higher viscosity oils while
offering the best fuel economy in the Mobil 1 line.

Mobil Delvac 1 LE 5W-30 is a low-viscosity, synthetic diesel engine oil that
is formulated to deliver outstanding engine protection and valuable
sustainability-related benefits, including enhanced fuel economy* potential
and long drain intervals. It is recommended for diesel-powered commercial
vehicles, such as, trucks, buses, vans and a range of off-highway equipment
used in the construction, mining and agriculture industries.
