Jimmie Johnson and the Hendrick Motorsports team have further etched their names in the motorsports history books by capturing the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship title for the sixth time. With the season coming down to the final race, Johnson crossed the finish line of the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship season with the help of Quaker State technology, developed with durability in mind to keep the No. 48’s engine running through to the checkered flag.

“It is an honor to have Quaker State technology coursing through the engine of Jimmie Johnson’s No. 48 car as he reached this remarkable milestone,” said Gita Gidwani, Quaker State brand manager. “Quaker State congratulates Jimmie Johnson, Rick Hendrick, and everyone at Hendrick Motorsports on their continued success. We are proud to be a part of this great achievement and many others during an exceptionally successful technical relationship over the last 18 years together.”  

Quaker State technology has helped Hendrick Motorsports to win more NASCAR races than any other team over the past 18 years. Quaker State engineers work diligently with Hendrick Motorsports throughout the season to analyze and adjust motor oil formulations to help achieve optimal engine performance.

The durable motor oils Quaker State provides Hendrick Motorsports have been a part of an impressive résumé of success on NASCAR’s national stage. With Quaker State technology under the hood, Hendrick Motorsports has captured more than 169 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) wins; 10 of its 11 NSCS championships; one NASCAR Nationwide Series championship and three NASCAR Truck Series championships. Add the more than seven million on track miles Quaker State and Hendrick Motorsports have together and it is obvious that Quaker State technology has the durability to help professional race teams win races and championships.

“I am at a loss for words, but I am so proud, and so thankful for this opportunity at Hendrick Motorsports,” said Johnson. “Thankful that Jeff Gordon and Rick Hendrick gave me this opportunity back in 2002. Thankful that Lowe’s came on board. This sport is about people and our people at Hendrick Motorsports, especially on this 48 car, rose up and got the job done. I am so thankful to be able to drive for this race team, and so honored and so excited to have a six-pack."

Johnson’s victory earned Hendrick Motorsports a record 11th series owner championship. “It’s hard to win one of these and I’m really proud of Chad and Jimmie for getting six and the whole organization getting 11,” said team owner Rick Hendrick. “I never thought we would get one let alone 11. Every one of them is special and makes you hungry and continue to want more.”
