Celebrating 70 years of Smart Lubrication™, MOLYKOTE™ brand specialty lubricants race into spotlight at 25th annual Brickyard 400

Austin Dillon to drive No. 3 Dow MOLYKOTE™ Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Sept. 9 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway

INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA - August 28, 2018 - MOLYKOTE™ lubricants regularly are used under the hood of driver Austin Dillon's racecar, but the 25th running of the Brickyard 400 on Sept. 9 brings the addition of MOLYKOTE™ branding on the side panels of the No. 3 Dow MOLYKOTE™ Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. This is the second consecutive year for Dillon's racecar to carry MOLYKOTE™ branding for the race.

"It's a point of pride that our products – including MOLYKOTE™ 111 Compound to keep engine compartment O-rings and gaskets in place – are used in Austin Dillon's No. 3 car from week to week; Austin and his team count on us to help keep their car on the track at high speeds and extreme temperatures," said Marjorie Dwane, Global Market Manager for MOLYKOTE™ Specialty Lubricants. "We're thrilled about the opportunity to work with Dow Racing, through its partnership with Richard Childress Racing, to again place our branding on the No. 3 car for the Brickyard 400. And because 2018 is the 70th anniversary of trusted MOLYKOTE™ Smart Lubrication™ solutions, being featured in this way at the race is extra-special for us."

In addition to silicone compounds, MOLYKOTE™ automotive specialty lubricant options include greases, pastes, oils, dispersions and anti-friction coatings. Full details are available on the MOLYKOTE™ automotive lubricants web page, accessible via molykote.com.
