Molykote® brand specialty lubricants race into spotlight at Brickyard 400

Austin Dillon to drive No. 3 Dow Molykote® Smart Lubrication™ Chevrolet Sunday

Molykote from Dow – a specialty lubricant brand trusted for nearly 70 years – will be prominently featured in Sunday’s (July 23) Brantley Gilbert Big Machine Brickyard 400 race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Molykote® lubricants regularly are used under the hood of driver Austin Dillon’s racecar, but the 24th running of the Brickyard 400 brings the addition of Molykote® branding on the hood, rear quarter-panels and side of the No. 3 Dow Molykote® Smart Lubrication™ Chevrolet.

“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 Automotive Smart Lubrication™ Global Market Manager Marjorie Dwane. “We’re thrilled about now having the additional opportunity to work with Dow Racing, through its partnership with Richard Childress Racing, to place our Molykote® branding on the No. 3 car for the Brickyard 400.”

In addition to compounds, Molykote® automotive specialty lubricant options include greases, pastes, lubricating solids and anti-friction coatings. Full details are available on the Molykote® automotive lubricants web page, accessible via molykote.com.

The 160-lap Brickyard 400 airs at 2:30 p.m. EDT Sunday, July 23, on NBC.
