Litton Seeks Primary Sponsor

Bruce Litton

INDIANAPOLIS — For the first time in Bruce Litton’s Top Fuel career, Lucas Oil will not be the major sponsor for the team.

Lucas Oil will, however, stay on in a smaller role with the team it has supported for 16 years.

“I will always be indebted to Lucas Oil,” Litton said. “They are family and I will always value Forrest Lucas’ friendship. I have always spoken highly of Forrest Lucas and his company because he’s the epitome of the American way. He is a self made man. He started from nothing and built the Lucas empire that has had a tremendous impact on the racing community and automotive industry. Lucas Oil is an outstanding organization. Drag racing wouldn’t be what it is today with them. Besides that, Lucas has done tremendous work with Protect the Harvest. It’s hard to give the man and the company enough credit for their efforts. Although we’ll no longer be working with Lucas in a primary sponsorship role, we are

forever grateful for all they’ve done.”

Although currently without a major sponsorship, Litton plans to continue fielding his Top Fuel machine. “We will still run all of the IHRA Nitro Jams, several match races and possibly select NHRA events depending on the securement of a new major sponsor,” said Litton.
