Lucas Oil is committed to supporting the world’s best bull riders as they compete in this innovative team format, and we look forward to thrilling fans with incredible performances throughout the season.”
As an established long-time PBR partner since 2011 and the “Exclusive and Official Oil” of PBR, Lucas Oil is also a major sponsor of the Unleash The Beast, the sport’s premier individual competition tour. The combined support of Unleash The Beast and PBR Teams provides extensive exposure for the Lucas Oil brand to millions of fans through prominent signage, branding, broadcast and streaming coverage, fan activations, giveaways and other engagements throughout the year.
“The first season of PBR Teams was a huge success, surpassing our high expectations, and we are very grateful to Lucas Oil for their support as a founding league partner,” said Josh Baker, Chief Revenue Officer, PBR. “As Lucas Oil continues to expand their involvement in Teams, we are expecting another exciting year filled with drama where every ride counts and fans can unite in support of their favorite riders and teams. We truly value the support of Lucas Oil as they continue to trust us with the amplification of their brand and activating their message coast to coast.”
