To commemorate the holistic effort being made to help protect and preserve the environment, NASCAR®  – with its official environmental partner, Safety-Kleen – celebrated its fifth annual NASCAR Race to Green™ initiative. Beginning on Earth Day and culminating with Sunday's TOYOTA OWNERS 400 at Richmond International Raceway, the initiative builds awareness around the programs NASCAR, the industry and multiple partners have developed to help reduce its carbon footprint.

A founding member of NASCAR Green, Safety-Kleen delivers oil recycling and re-refining services to the track each weekend, ensuring all cleaning solvents, oil, fluids and lubricants are recaptured and incorporated into useable products.

"The Race To Green initiative allows us to highlight the foundational partners that help reduce our impact on the environment all year long," said Brent Dewar, NASCAR Chief Operating Officer. "As an example of the wide range of initiatives taking place across the industry, American Ethanol has helped us eclipse 10 million miles on Sunoco Green E15, Safety-Kleen recycles all oil and lubricants at more than 200 race events a year, and collectively as an industry more than 400,000 trees have been planted to date. We are proud to continue those efforts under the Race to Green umbrella."
