Check out Trayce, Maggie and Charlotte’s stories of proof below.
Trayce is focused on performance and on his drive for greatness, Pennzoil wants in on the ride.
Hailing from Greenwood, Indiana, Trayce is a standout junior forward for the Indiana University Men’s Basketball Team. In his three short years at Indiana, Trayce has already stacked up an impressive list of accomplishments. Most notably, he was named First Team All-Big Ten for the 2020-2021 season and won the 2019 Indiana Gatorade Player of the Year for his athletic abilities, academic excellence, and exemplary character.
Along with his love for basketball, Trayce has had a passion for cars his entire life. Upon turning professional, one of his first moves will be off the court – upgrading to a new ride!
Speed recognizes speed – and Maggie is bringing a new caliber of performance to Pennzoil.
Although Maggie has been a decorated swimmer her entire life, last summer she accomplished what many athletes can only dream; she earned the highest honors in all of athletics – an Olympic gold medal! MacNeil is currently a senior swimmer for the University of Michigan, but she is also an Ontario, Canada native who competed for Canada in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Specializing in butterfly and freestyle, Maggie won an impressive three medals in the 2020 Olympic games, including gold in the 100-meter butterfly. On top of that, Maggie was named Best Female Athlete at the Tokyo Olympics by the Association of National Olympic Committees. On the collegiate level, Maggie is a two-time NCAA champion (100-yard freestyle; 100-yard butterfly), 14-time Big Ten champion and two-time Big Ten Swimmer of the Year – just to name a few of her accomplishments.
Maggie spends her mornings and nights driving to swim practice and ensures her car is in excellent condition. As a DIY-er who’s never had her Subaru cleaned professionally, Maggie takes tremendous pride in the appearance of her vehicle -- which also means nobody is allowed to eat in it!
Charlotte’s driven performance and experience with vehicle maintenance aligns her perfectly with our elite line-up of athletes!
Originally from Dallas, Texas, Charlotte is currently a graduate student at Boston College and an attacker for the women’s lacrosse team. In 2021, Charlotte led the Boston Eagles through a historic season, concluding with their first ever national championship. Headlining her personal accolades, Charlotte was named the winner of the 2021 Tewaaraton Award, given to the top men’s and women’s lacrosse player in the country. Mary Garber ACC Female Athlete of the Year, IWLCA Player of the Year, First Team All-American, NCAA Tournament Most Outstanding player – just to name a few of Charlotte’s impressive accomplishments in the 2021 season alone.
Charlotte currently drives a 2021 Jeep® Grand Cherokee and as a DIYer takes pride in keeping it in peak operating condition! Charlotte counts on her car for cross-country drives from Dallas to Boston, as well as for ferrying teammates to and from practice and home games in all sorts of Boston weather.
