The partnership between RFK and Castrol is designed to help the team better manage its greenhouse emissions by tracking, quantifying, and reducing those emissions, and offsetting the balance with high-quality carbon offset projects.
RFK has achieved carbon neutrality for the entire organization including operations, the two race teams and race cars for the period between 1 January 2021 and 31 December 2021, assessed and assured in accordancewith the BSI PAS 2060 standard by ERM CVS (independent 3rd party assurer). The Castrol partnership has enabled this process by providing expertise and guidance throughout.*
The initiative is part of the ongoing relationship between RFK and Castrol while also being another step towards supporting Castrol’s partners in achieving their lower carbon ambitions.
To symbolize its carbon neutral achievement, Roush Fenway and Castrol are bringing back the now iconic all white paint scheme for Brad Keselowski’s No. 6 Castrol race car.

Beginning at the Talladega race both RFK cars will be using motor oils specially formulated for RFK by Castrol with more than 50% RRBO (re-refined base oil). Re-refined oil, on average, has 50% lower lifecycle carbon emissions vs. ordinary/conventional oil.**
In addition to the Roush Fenway partnership, Castrol and the Los Angeles Rams are partnering to launch new initiatives that help promote sustainability across the team’s operations, home and away. With Castrol’s support as an official sustainability partner of the Los Angeles Rams, the Rams are taking steps designed to reduce their environmental impact, because small steps together can make a difference.
