Kevin Harvick’s Richard Childress
Racing Chevy Monte Carlo as he
pulled o; one of his trademark,
late-race winning passes.
Fact is, it could have been in any
of hundreds of racecars, thanks to
Safety-Kleen, a leading North
American used-oil recycling, parts
cleaning and environmental
solutions company, which supplies
its recycled and refined oil to the
U.S. Military, National Parks and
Postal Service, among others.

programs play a part in helping teams
leave racetracks the way they found them.
