Victory Lane was founded by Derrick and Jane Oxender in 1980 as Pit Stop Quick Lube in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The name was changed to Victory Lane Quick Oil Change when the company began offering franchise sales in 1986. This long history makes Victory Lane the longest operating quick lube franchise in Michigan.
After 30+ years of successful operation, the Oxender’s sold Victory Lane to Justin and Lauren Cialella in July of 2014. At the time of the sale, the Cialella’s were the majority franchisees of the corporation, owning and operating 10 locations in the SE Michigan region.
The Victory Lane franchise is licensed nationwide, and currently operates 30 franchise locations in 5 states. As of 2014, Victory Lane is the 23rd largest franchise quick lube in the U.S.*, and the 5th largest retail automotive franchise in Michigan **
