The fastest pit crew in the oil change industry took on an IndyCar on Sunday leading into the St. Pete IndyCar race, putting their quick car care skills to work to service the open wheel machine as it did laps for fans around St. Pete.

Take 5 Oil Change announced it converted 14 Havoline xpress lube locations in the Tampa Bay marketplace in February and re-opened them as Take 5 Oil Change facilities, the nation’s growing leader in fast minor maintenance services. Not only does Take 5 Oil Change deliver the fastest pit crew service in the industry, drivers can wait in the comfort of their car and enjoy a complimentary beverage or bottled water during their service.
In celebration of the 14 Take 5 Oil Change entries to the Tampa Bay and St. Pete markets, Take 5’s 4th St. location gave away sets of tickets and paddock passes to lucky customers to attend the St. Pete Grand Prix on Sunday, March 12. In addition, customers had an opportunity to take rides in the two-seater street legal IndyCar around the St. Pete streets. The ticket giveaway will continue at all 14 Tampa Bay and St. Pete locations through March 10.
“The Tampa takeover represents a major milestone for the Take 5 Oil Change brand, and what better way to showcase our fast, unique service than with fast laps around St. Pete,” said Brannan Lahoda, ‎Vice President of Operations, Quick Lube at Driven Brands, Inc.  “Our national rollout across the country will continue to gain speed this spring and summer, as convert more locations throughout Florida, Texas, Oklahoma, Georgia, Arkansas and Mississippi, among others.”
