CELEBRATION, Fla.-One year after G-OIL made history as the first bio-based full synthetic motor oil to be used in NASCAR competition at Daytona International Speedway, veteran driver Mike Bliss will drive the #19 G-OIL Toyota Camry for TriStar Motorsports in the NASCAR Nationwide Series DRIVE4COPD 300 race this Saturday.
Bliss led the 2012 NNS DRIVE4COPD 300 twice for 6 laps before being taken out in a crash on lap 59. He finished 8th in the Subway Jalapeno 250 Powered by Coca-Cola race in July 2012.
G-OIL is now the "Official Motor Oil" of Daytona International Speedway and the DAYTONA 500®.
"Last year, we proved that G-OIL provides exceptional environmental benefits without compromising performance," said Jeffrey Loch, President and CMO of Green Earth Technologies, Inc. "We are pleased to continue our relationship with TriStar Motorsports and Pro Motor Engines here at Daytona and look forward to watching Mike Bliss perform in the #19 G-OIL Toyota Camry."
