Lucas Oil Products has signed a multi-year agreement to become the title sponsor of the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series national event held in Pomona, Calif., each February. Lucas Oil is a longstanding partner of NHRA supporting several ongoing drag racing series and events.
The 58th annual Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com will be held February 8-11, 2018 and will kick off the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing season. One of the most iconic events of the series, the Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com is highly anticipated as race teams reveal new cars, introduce new drivers, and present new sponsors.
“Lucas Oil has been such an important and integral part of NHRA drag racing,” said NHRA president Peter Clifford. “We couldn’t ask for a better title sponsor to launch us into a great 2018 season and appreciate their partnership.”
“We are pleased to add another exciting national event to our lineup of title sponsorships in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series,” said Forrest Lucas, president and CEO of Lucas Oil Products. “Lucas Oil started in southern California, so this title sponsorship is a natural fit.”
In addition to the Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com, Lucas Oil also sponsors the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals in Brainerd, Minn., and Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis in Brownsburg, Ind.
