The Official Fuel of Nascar

Sunoco has been the official fuel of NASCAR since 2004 and is the exclusive fuel provider for all three national racing series in the sport:

  • NASCAR Cup Series
  • NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series

Sunoco has fueled more than 18 million miles of competition and over 1,800 victories in NASCAR alone. The specialized NASCAR fuel is Sunoco Green E15, a 98 octane, unleaded fuel blend specifically engineered for high-performance engines and race cars. It's called Green E15 because the racing fuel is actually green in color.


We’ve officially partnered with Stake F1 team KICK Sauber to bring our history of high performance to the pinnacle of global motorsport. Being a brand that is synonymous with performance fuels, supporting many US racing bodies, Sunoco is re-entering the world of F1 after an almost 50-year hiatus.

In 2015, Sunoco completed the trifecta of American Motorsports by signing on as the official fuel of the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). Sunoco is now the exclusive provider of racing fuel for all of the NHRA's professional racing classes: Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycle.

Sunoco puts a tremendous amount of care and precision into the race fuels we manufacture for the NHRA, and then they burn it up in just about four seconds. And maybe it's coincidence, but since the NHRA switched to Sunoco racing fuel, five national records have fallen along with 59 individual track records across Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycle classes of racing.


The Choice of Grassroots Racing

Beyond NASCAR, IndyCar, and NHRA, Sunoco is also extremely proud to be fuel of choice for a wide array of other forms of motorsports, including SVRA, TransAm, Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, ARCA Racing Series and more than 50 other racing series.
