In 2010, Quaker Chemical formed a partnership with the Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing (SFHR) team to develop new greases that would reduce mechanical loss of energy and extend the life of the IndyCar bearings. SFH racing team wanted an advantage that would mean the difference between a first and third place finish. Quaker wanted to leverage the SFHR team’s data and advance their understanding of grease under extreme stress conditions to gain market advantage in a wide range of industries.
