Sunoco Sticks With Lucas Late Models
WAYCROSS, Ga. – Sunoco Race Fuels will once again be the official fuel of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series during the 2014 season.
Sunoco Race Fuels has been an official partner with the series since 2009 and will continue its support of the premier national touring series for super dirt late model racing through several programs associated with the LOLMDS. Sunoco has been the fuel of choice for the series champion the past two years with Newport, Tenn., driver Jimmy Owens winning the series championship using Sunoco in 2012 and 2013.
Sunoco Race Fuels will be the title sponsor of the Sunoco Race for Gas competition. Drivers using Sunoco Race Fuel exclusively at series events will earn points at each series event. The driver that earns the most Sunoco points over the course of the season will be crowned the Sunoco Race for Gas Champion and receive a $3,000 cash award at the year end awards banquet.
Sunoco will also sponsor the Sunoco Road to Wheatland Loyalty program for drivers that followed the series in 2013. Those drivers that maintain perfect attendance in 2014 through the Lucas Oil Show-Me 100 on May 2h will receive an additional cash bonus at that event. In addition Sunoco will offer a special bonus if a Sunoco driver that has perfect attendance on the series in 2014 and wins the Lucas Oil Show-Me 100 on May 24. That driver will receive an additional $2,000 cash bonus on top of the $30,000 first place prize money.
In addition to the several Sunoco sponsored programs, Sunoco will again be the title sponsor of the 32nd Annual Sunoco North/South 100 at Florence Speedway in Union, Ky. This LOLMDS crown jewel event will take place on Aug. 8-9 and has been a mainstay on the series schedule for the past three 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 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,” said Terry Thompson, national sales manger for Sunoco Race Fuels.
