4 June 1999
PetroMoly's Debut At Indy 500 -- A WinnerHOUSTON--This past Memorial Day Weekend at the 83rd annual running of the Indianapolis 500, Worldwide PetroMoly Inc.(OTC BB: MOLY) sponsored car number 81, the "PetroMoly Racecar" driven by the league's 1998 rookie of the year, Robby Unser. Out of a field of eighty-five drivers attempting to qualify, and thirty-three race day finalists, Unser steered PetroMoly into a part of Indy history with an eighth place finish, in one of the most exciting races ever to run the "Brickyard".
"The PetroMoly car ran very strong all day, turning some great lap times," says Robby Unser." The engine really felt incredible, and the PetroMoly oil held up very nicely. This race is the ultimate test on any automotive product's performance, and PetroMoly aced the challenge. I want to thank the people at PetroMoly for being a part of this with me."
"PetroMoly performed extremely well," says John King, Crew Chief of the PetroMoly Racecar for Team Pelfrey. "The engine ran 500 miles without missing a beat and consumed practically no oil." John King has spent the past three years working for racing legend A.J. Foyt. During that time, the Foyt Crew, along with Mr. King brought home two Indy Racing League Championships and finished a close second in another.
"Our product, as well as Robby, pulled off a win in so many ways at INDY for PetroMoly" said Lance J.Rosmarin, President of Worldwide PetroMoly. "These Indy race engines are reserved for the most elite of lubricants, and with Robby finishing in the top ten, in a race this grueling and of this magnitude, further validates the superiority of PetroMoly's technology and ability to perform. We also received a lot of publicity and notoriety with the PetroMoly with molytech(TM) brand name displayed to the 500,000 crowd turnout, and the world wide broadcast on the ABC and ESPN networks. We are now preparing for a strategic retail campaign in the near future that will further capitalize on our success here at Indy and the ongoing racing circuit."

Worldwide PetroMoly, Inc. manufactures, markets and distributes high-performance lubricants for use in all types of motor vehicles, compressor engines and railroad locomotives. PetroMoly products incorporate a new patent-approved process technology called molytech(TM). These products contain stable and suspended molybdenum disulfide (moly), a hard and extremely low-friction metal, which fills in the micro-porous, crater-like surfaces of pistons, rings and cylinder walls. This creates a more efficient engine environment and prevents metal-to-metal contact, thereby reducing friction, heat and wear. Moly is a slick and powerful antioxidant, known to have the world's lowest coefficient for friction. Worldwide PetroMoly is a sponsor in the Pep Boys Indy Racing League.
