OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
TALLADEGA, Ala., April 27, 2019 – Roush Fenway Racing has announced a partnership with Mazola® Corn Oil in which the brand will serve as a primary partner on driver Ryan Newman’s No. 6 Ford Mustang in the NASCAR Cup Series later this season, which will debut at a race in Phoenix on November 10. The partnership pairs NASCAR’s winningest team and Hall of Fame owner Jack Roush with NASCAR perennial contender Newman and Mazola® Corn Oil, an all-purpose, heart healthy* cooking oil 100% sourced from corn grown in the Midwest.
“We are excited to have Mazola® Corn Oil on board,” said Newman, during a press conference announcing the partnership. “As a driver and a father, I strive for nothing but the best both on and off the track. That’s why when it comes to making a delicious meal for my family, I choose the “gold standard” of cooking oils, heart healthy Mazola® Corn Oil for the best in taste and performance.”
The announcement was made during a press event at Talladega Superspeedway where Newman then treated members of the media to a meal prepared with Mazola® Corn Oil.
“We look forward to a great partnership with Ryan and are proud to provide a dependable and heart healthy product that can be used in everyday meals,”said Mike Shehorn, Senior Brand Manager of Mazola®.
According to a study cited in the Journal of Clinical Lipidology, Mazola® Corn Oil can help lower cholesterol two times more than extra virgin olive oil. Additionally, Mazola® Corn Oil’s high smoke point makes it a great all-purpose cooking oil for a variety of cooking techniques and dishes, whether it’s baking and grilling to sautéing and marinating.
Newman, who is in his first season driving the No. 6 for Roush Fenway, moves into Talladega coming off two straight top-10 finishes and is currently locked inside the playoff hunt, sitting in 14th in the driver standings.
