MIAMI, FL, Feb. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — EzFill Holdings, Inc. (“EzFill” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: EZFL), a pioneer and emerging leader in the mobile fuel industry, announced that it has entered into an agreement with South Florida Motorsports (“SFM”), the organizers of the Formula 1 Crypto.com Miami Grand Prix 2023 to provide mobile fuel services for the build-out and operations leading up to the Miami Grand Prix, scheduled for May 5-7, 2023.
The Formula 1 Crypto.com Miami Grand Prix 2023 debuted in May 2022, becoming the second US Grand Prix race on the calendar and the 11th American venue to host a round of the Formula 1 world championship. Set in the Hard Rock Stadium complex in Miami Gardens, the 2022 event drew more than 240,000 spectators over three days. The 2023 event will feature a newly paved, 3.36 mile, 19-turn street track spectacular with new and enhanced hospitality features.
EzFill expects to service more than 300 Formula 1 assets dedicated to the build-out of the 2023 event as well as operations related to the track and grounds leading up to the race. Service has already commenced and is expected to run through June. We believe EzFill brings a more convenient, safer, worry-free way for these assets to be fueled, allowing SFM more time to focus on all the other aspects of this event.
Mike McConnell, EzFill Chief Executive Officer, commented, “It is a tremendous privilege to be chosen to service an event with Formula 1’s prestige and global footprint, and we are thrilled with the opportunity. The 2022 Miami Grand Prix was a huge undertaking, and the 2023 event is expected to be even grander. It will require an enormous number of both fixed and mobile assets that will need to be constantly fueled. The Miami Grand Prix is as high profile an event as one can get and we believe it will be a tremendous opportunity for EzFill to showcase its capabilities. We’re excitedly looking forward to showing the City of Miami what we can do.”
EzFill is a leader in the fast-growing mobile fuel industry, with the largest market share in its home state of Florida. Its mission is to disrupt the gas station fueling model by providing consumers and businesses with the convenience, safety, and touch-free benefits of on-demand fueling services brought directly to their locations. For commercial and specialty customers, at-site delivery during downtimes enables operators to begin their daily operations with fully fueled vehicles. For more information, visit www.ezfl.com.
With the number of gas stations in the U.S. continuing to decline, corporate giants such as Shell, Exxon, GM, Bridgestone, Enterprise, and Mitsubishi have recognized the increasing shift in consumer behavior and are investing in the fast growing on-demand mobile fueling industry. As the only company to provide fuel delivery in three vertical segments – consumer, commercial, and specialty including marine, we believe EzFill is well positioned to capitalize on the growing demand for convenient and cost-efficient mobile fueling options.
