Lucas Oil Named Primary Sponsor of RCR’s No. 8 Lucas Oil Chevrolet for Three Races in 2024 – Partnership Highlights On-Track Success, Longstanding Partnership

WELCOME, N.C. (April 2, 2024) – Lucas Oil, a long-time partner of both Richard Childress Racing and ECR Engines, continues the expansion of its partnership as the primary sponsor of the No. 8 Chevrolet driven by two-time Cup champion Kyle Busch for three races in the 2024 NASCAR season. Fans will see the familiar race-winning Lucas Oil paint scheme for the first time April 7 at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia. Following that, the Lucas Oil colors will be on the car at Michigan International Speedway, August 8, and again on the high banks of the Talladega Superspeedway, Oct. 6, the fifth race of the Cup Series Playoffs.

“After reaching victory lane with Kyle’s No. 8 Chevrolet in 2023, we are very excited to announce that we’ve expanded our primary sponsorship to three races in 2024 at some of NASCAR’s most legendary tracks,” said Brandon Bernstein, director of partnership marketing for Lucas Oil. “In addition to being one of the winningest organizations in NASCAR and all of motorsports, RCR and ECR Engines continues to be an amazing partner both on and off the track. We are very proud to again have Kyle represent the Lucas Oil shield as he competes for his third Cup championship.”

Lucas Oil has served as the official lubricant of RCR and ECR Engines since 2014 and is the official motor oil of ECR Engines. ECR Engines and Lucas Oil have recorded a total of 133 wins between 2014 and 2023, with another four victories already in 2024.

“Over the past 10 years, Lucas Oil has been an amazing partner to RCR and ECR Engines and we are thrilled to have them back as the primary sponsor of the No. 8 Chevrolet,” said said Torry Galida, President of RCR. “The technical support they provide to our race teams and ECR has resulted in numerous victories, which is why it is so special to highlight this partnership on Rowdy’s car. We have no doubt he will be competing for wins this year while representing the Lucas Oil brand.”

In addition to the NASCAR Cup races, Lucas Oil is also the Official Oil of Kyle & Brexton Busch. Kyle is competing in 20-25 Micro Sprint events in 2024 with a Lucas Oil full-car wrap and racing suit. Lucas Oil is also a proud associate sponsor for all of Brexton’s racing disciplines. Brexton is a third generation racer, beginning his racing career at age five. He earned his first win just one month into his racing career, and now Lucas Oil is at the heart of this father/son racing legacy.

Since 2014, expert scientists and technicians at Lucas Oil have worked closely with RCR and ECR to refine the perfect blend of engine oil capable of drawing out every competitive advantage possible. The teams test engines in simulators and real-world racing scenarios capturing hundreds of data points to measure and find areas of improvement.
