Lucas Oil 225 Kicks Off the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Weekend
Chicagoland Speedway today announced Lucas Oil as the title sponsor of its NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race this September. The Lucas Oil 225 will hit the track for a night race on Friday, Sept. 12, as part of a triple-header weekend to kick off the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup at Chicagoland Speedway.
“As a longtime supporter of motorsports, Lucas Oil is excited about the opportunity to be a part of one of NASCAR’s premier race weekends in a market like Chicago,” said Bob Pattison, Executive Vice President of Lucas Oil Products. “For the past 25 years, we have put a premium on delivering performance products for racers and customers and we intend to continue that this September with our partnership at Chicagoland Speedway.”
The Lucas Oil 225 falls on the same day as NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Qualifying and also marks Family Fun Night at the track with post-race fireworks. Tickets for the Lucas Oil 225 start at just $25 and fans receive $25 off any youth seat with the purchase of an adult admission.
“In addition to establishing itself as an industry leader, Lucas Oil has a long-standing relationship with ISC and within the sport of NASCAR, including partnerships with several of our sister tracks,” said Scott Paddock, President of Chicagoland Speedway. “We’re looking forward to building on that relationship in the Chicago market and delivering a thrilling Lucas Oil night race to kick off NASCAR’s playoffs.”
In recent years Lucas Oil has produced a line of high performance engine oils and gear oils that are second-to-none in the racing industry. “Lucas Oil has made good racing oil for a very long time that really works,” Lucas Oil founder Forrest Lucas said. “We are very excited to be the title sponsor for the Lucas Oil 225 in September and look forward to presenting thrilling NASCAR Camping World Truck Series racing for the enjoyment of the Chicagoland fans.”
