Lucas Oil, the official lubricant of ECR Engines and Richard Childress Racing, will partner with Kyle Busch for Sunday's NASCAR Cup Series event at Auto Club Speedway.
The company announced the addition of primary sponsorship on Monday, as part of an enhanced agreement between Richard Childress Racing, ECR Engines, and Lucas Oil.
“RCR and ECR share our passion for motorsports, from the grassroots to the highest levels of the sport,” said Brandon Bernstein, director of partnership marketing for Lucas Oil. “We’ve seen first-hand the benefits of our partnership, especially as it relates to technology transfer over to short track racers and everyday consumers. We’re proud to continue to commit our resources in R&D and production, and to highlight our premier oil performance with sponsorship of the No. 8 Chevrolet.”
Since 2014, Lucas Oil has served as the official lubricant of RCR and ECR Engines, as well as the official motor oil of ECR. Over the last decade, the pairing have secured more than 20 victories together.
“Lucas Oil’s market-leading products have long contributed to the incredible durability and on-track success of ECR’s engines in many forms of motorsports,” said Bob Fisher, senior vice president of ECR Engines. “We’re proud to be able to use our high-powered competition platform to showcase Lucas Oil’s key technologies and continue to win races and championships with their R&D support.”
The company last served as a primary partner for Richard Childress Racing in 2020, backing Anthony Alfredo in a single NASCAR Xfinity Series event at Indy's Road Course.
“RCR and ECR have benefited from having a lubricants partner with strong roots in racing,” said Torrey Galida, president of RCR. “We’re incredibly thankful to Lucas for all of the resources and expertise they provide to give us a competitive on-track advantage.”
