WAYCROSS, GA (February 2nd, 2015) – The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series is pleased to announce that Sunoco Race Fuels has signed a new three year agreement as the “Official Fuel” of the LOLMDS, beginning in 2015. Sunoco has been the fuel of choice for the LOLMDS champion the past three years with Martinsville, IN driver Don O’Neal (2014) and Newport, TN driver Jimmy Owens (2012, 2013), both winning the series championship using Sunoco. “We are extremely honored to have Sunoco Race Fuels as an “Official” partner with the LOLMDS. The Sunoco brand has been an icon in our sport for many years and to be associated with their world class company and everyone that works there is a real privilege”, stated Ritchie Lewis, Director, Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.
As the “Official Fuel” of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, Sunoco Race Fuels will provide additional cash bonuses for racers using Sunoco exclusively under the Sunoco Race for Gas program. Sunoco will also pay out cash awards under the Sunoco Road to Wheatland Loyalty program for drivers that followed the series in 2014. Sunoco will also post a cash bonus to a driver that wins the Lucas Oil Show-Me 100 using Sunoco Race Fuels.
In addition to the several Sunoco sponsored programs, Sunoco will again be the title sponsor of the $50,000 to win Sunoco North/South 100 at Florence Speedway in Union, KY. This LOLMDS crown jewel event will take place on August 7th-8th and has been a mainstay on the series schedule for the past four years with Sunoco as the title sponsor. This mega event has become one of the “must attend” events of the year for both racers and fans alike.
“We are very pleased to continue our relationship with the premier national touring dirt late model series in the country, not only as the “Official Fuel” of the Series, but as the sponsor of several programs, including the crown jewel Sunoco North/South 100, held in Kentucky every year. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series continues to grow and provides great professionally run events for both racers and promoters alike. Everyone at Lucas Oil has been a pleasure to work with, from the staff, the drivers and all the tracks we support” stated Terry Thompson, National Sales Manger for Sunoco Race Fuels.
