OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (April 23, 2019) – Mystik Lubricants, a member of the CITGO Petroleum Corporation family of brands, will join Front Row Motorsports (FRM) and David Ragan and the No. 38 Ford Mustang team this season. Mystik Lubricants will serve as the primary sponsor of Ragan at Kansas Speedway in May and Texas Motor Speedway in November. The brand will also be featured as an associate sponsor throughout the season.
CITGO Petroleum Corporation began its partnership with FRM in 2018 with its CITGARD brand at Darlington Raceway, paying tribute to Dale Jarrett during the annual “Throwback Weekend.” The popular feedback from race fans and success of the program led to an increased commitment with FRM and Ragan this season.
“Our partnership with Front Row Motorsports and David Ragan has generated a lot of excitement with our customers,” said Brian Paulson, CITGO General Manager Lubricants. “It feels only natural to expand our involvement with the No. 38 program and introduce our Mystik Lubricants brand to NASCAR fans. We look forward to our continued success throughout the season.”
Mystik Lubricants develops products for real-world conditions that are specially formulated to meet the unique demands of specialized machines. Mystik supplies greases and engine oils for automotive, heavy-duty, commercial, industrial, powersports and agricultural customers.
“I’m really excited to partner with Mystik Lubricants this season,” said Ragan. “Reliable, heavy-duty engine lubricants are such a key part of our operation, and I’m proud that we use the best.”
Fritz Sports & Event Enterprises will oversee the partnership. “We are thrilled to bring a major new brand, Mystik Lubricants, into the NASCAR family with Front Row Motorsports and David Ragan,” said CEO Doug Fritz.
