Performance Plus® and "The King" Collaborate on New Richard Petty Signature Series(TM) Motor Oil

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- When it comes to high performance, the winningest driver in NASCAR history knows a thing or two. "The King" Richard Petty yesterday announced the release of Richard Petty Signature Series(TM) Motor Oil, an innovative Performance Plus® blend for high-performance vehicles formulated for the most extreme street conditions and racing competitions.

Engineered to outpace other oils on the market by using the highest performing base oil and additives available, Performance Plus - Safety-Kleen's brand of oils - and Richard Petty Signature Series are the only motor oils used in Petty's Garage, the Randleman, N.C.-based high-performance speed shop.

"Petty's Garage needed a premium oil to match the quality and craftsmanship we put into every one of our cars," Petty said. "We found it with Performance Plus Richard Petty Signature Series. Performance Plus and the Richard Petty Signature Series are the exclusive oils used in every car at Petty's Garage. Best oil I ever poured in an engine."

The new blend provides a performance advantage for high horsepower, high temperature or highly customized engines. Petty Signature Series' high zinc content and other quality additives provide maximum protection and ensure superior performance to meet the uncompromising demands of performance enthusiasts.

Surrounded by racing fans, Petty first presented the new oil at SEMA - the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world, being held at the Las Vegas Convention Center this week - where Safety-Kleen® and Performance Plus are exhibiting.

Richard Petty Signature Oil further strengthens a partnership between "The King" and Safety-Kleen that spans nearly five decades.

Petty and Safety-Kleen have been working hand-in-hand since the 1970s, beginning with Safety-Kleen providing parts washing services to the original Petty family automotive shop and playing a central role in Petty's various businesses through the years, including picking-up paint waste, collecting and re-refining used motor oil and offering the latest in shop cleaning. The relationship took on new heights in 2018 with the introduction of a full line of Performance Plus high-performance lubricants.

"Partnering with the Petty family has been an incredible journey for us and a huge privilege," said Leigh Harrington, Safety-Kleen's vice president of marketing. "That Richard chose to put his name behind Performance Plus, and name us as the exclusive oil for all of the automotive work now associated with his storied career, speaks volumes of the confidence he has in our product."

From Lee Petty to "The King" and now to his 19-year-old grandson and ARCA driver Thad Moffit, Safety-Kleen is proud to play a part in the illustrious family's history, he said.

The new Richard Petty Signature Series oil can be purchased at or by calling 833-Petty-43.

On the track, Performance Plus oil runs in Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr.'s No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro for Richard Petty Motorsports and numerous other cars in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. Performance Plus is also under the hood of Thad Moffitt's No. 46 Chevrolet SS in the ARCA Menard Series.
