Castrol Continues Support for Roush Fenway Keselowski (RFK) Carbon Neutrality

Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing (RFK) is bringing back the carbon neutral No. 6 Ford powered by Castrol at Talladega Superspeedway. RFK will be powered by Castrol as it continues to make strides on its carbon neutral journey across the RFK teams’ operations both on and off the track for the second year in a row.

HOW IS CASTROL SUPPORTING RFK IN THIS INITIATIVE?

 

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.

 

WHAT IS CASTROL DOING ON AND OFF THE TRACK TO DRIVE CHANGE?

 

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.

New for 2022 - Castrol has Specially Formulated Motor Oil

 

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.**
