Stewart says Mobil 1 renews sponsorship with team
Tony Stewart says ExxonMobil has renewed its multiyear sponsorship of both the three-time NASCAR champion and Stewart-Haas Racing.
Stewart made the announcement that Mobil 1 will continue its relationship with him and his team while hosting the year-end edition of "Tony Stewart Live" on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
Mobil 1 will be the primary sponsor on Stewart's Chevrolet for 11 races. Stewart missed the final four months of the season with a broken leg, but is expected to return to his car at the season-opening Daytona 500 in February.
Stewart believes Mobil 1 was instrumental in Danica Patrick's historic pole-winning run for the Daytona 500, as well as Stewart and Ryan Newman qualifying in the top 10.
