Winning Races.

This TRD-powered funny car uses its 11,000 horsepower nitromethane-powered V8 to run down 1,000 feet in under four seconds.

With engine pressure exceeding 20,000 PSI, and temperatures rising from 180 to 280 degrees during the course of a run, only the most well designed components can survive.

Did you know that Mobil 1 engineers worked closely with Kalitta Motorsports to develop Mobil 1 Racing Nitro 70WT?

Using four gallons of oil per run, this bespoke synthetic motor oil helps protect against the extremes unique to the rigors of NHRA competition.
