April 21, 2014 (Mooresville, NC) - The No. 13 GEICO Chevrolet SS driven by NASCAR Sprint Cup Series winner Casey Mears will feature associate sponsor Take 5, Home of the 5-Minute Oil Change, for the Virginia 400 at Richmond International Raceway on Saturday, April 26th. The sponsorship is a great addition to the company’s celebration of “30 Years of the Fastest Oil Change on the Planet.” Saturday’s 300 mile, 400 lap race will be broadcast on FOX at 6:30 PM ET and over radio networks MRN and Sirius XM Ch. 90.

The company slogan, “We Change Your Oil, Not Your Schedule” is a fun concept to throw into the context of the short-track, high-speed action of Richmond International Raceway. Take 5 Oil Change offers convenient drive-thru oil changes featuring liquid engineering in Castrol products.

Take 5 oil changes come with a complementary beverage and the overall experience in Take 5’s "stay in your car", low pressure, high speed oil change environment. Take 5 Oil Change understands the value of the driver’s time and is competitively priced and the company’s certified manager and staff are there to serve seven (7) days a week.

Richmond’s Virginia 400 begins for crews on Thursday as NASCAR Sprint Cup Series cars are run through inspection, but on-track activity for the GEICO Chevy SS carrying the Take 5 Oil Change logo will begin Friday, April 25th, with practice sessions at 10 AM and 1 PM (ET).  Qualifying follows at 5:10 PM (ET). Saturday’s 400-lap race will be broadcast live on FOX beginning at 6:30 PM (ET).  MRN and Sirius XM Ch. 90 will carry the radio coverage of the event.
