Lucas Oil will also remain the Official Oil of NHRA as part of the agreement.
Thursday’s news continues a lasting partnership between the NHRA and Lucas Oil, which has been in place for more than two decades. Lucas Oil has been a cornerstone and all-encompassing partner of NHRA and will extend a relationship that began nearly 25 years ago.
“Lucas Oil has been an integral part of the NHRA for nearly a quarter of a century, and I am proud to announce a new, long-term extension with this remarkable organization,” said Brandon Bernstein, Director of Partnership Marketing for Lucas Oil. “This has always been one of our most cherished motorsports relationships because of the NHRA’s amazing history and its remarkable fanbase.
“Our sponsorship of the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, Antron Brown, and at other levels throughout the NHRA reflects our deep dedication to drag racing and the entire motorsports community,” Bernstein continued. “We have witnessed some incredible growth in this sport, and I firmly believe 2024 will be one of the most exciting seasons in NHRA's history.”
Lucas Oil will also remain the title sponsor of the popular Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals at Brainerd (Minn.) Int’l Raceway and the historic Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals at In-N-Out Burger Pomona (Calif.) Dragstrip.
The Winternationals will take place for the 64th time, while the annual stop in Brainerd celebrates its 42nd year this season.
Lucas Oil’s partnership with NHRA also extends to the naming rights of legendary Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park, which plays host to the world’s most prestigious drag race – the NHRA U.S. Nationals, which contests its 70th edition this year.
Further showcasing the company’s longtime support in NHRA championship drag racing, Lucas Oil is also a partner for top teams in the NHRA Mission Foods Drag Racing Series, including three-time Top Fuel world champion Brown.
Throughout its partnership with NHRA, Lucas Oil has worked closely with drivers and race teams to develop specialized motor oil, gear oil and fuel treatments for racing, which has led to the creation of several top-selling products.
“We’re thrilled to continue this partnership with Lucas Oil, which has shown an incredible commitment to NHRA drag racing for more than 20 years,” said NHRA Vice President and Chief Development Officer Brad Gerber. “The entire Lucas family has played a pivotal role for many race teams and drivers across the NHRA, and we’re excited for this relationship to continue well into the future.”
The NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series schedule was previously announced and includes a comprehensive list of races, including 45 divisional events and 22 regional events.
The Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series season opens Feb. 16-17 at Orlando (Fla.) Speed World Dragway and concludes Nov. 7-10 at The Strip at Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway.
