CORONA, Calif. – Lucas Oil Products has signed on as an official partner of Kyle Larson Racing.

The deal will support KLR drivers Kyle Larson and Carson Macedo as they compete with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series and in several other crown jewel events during the season.

“Everyone at Lucas Oil is very excited to welcome Kyle Larson Racing into the Lucas Oil family,” said Lucas Oil Director of Motorsports Tom Bogner. “Kyle is one of the most talented drivers on both pavement and dirt and has a very strong following while Carson is one of the most exciting up-and-coming drivers in the dirt racing world right now.

“We are proud to be a part of their program and can’t wait to see them in victory lane many times this year.”

As a driver with a deep passion for sprint car racing, Larson looks forward to working with a company that has strong ties to the dirt track community.

“I am excited to partner with Lucas Oil for the 2019 season,” said Larson. “They have always been a big supporter of all different forms of motorsports. To have them want to be a part of my personal dirt racing ventures with Silva Motorsports and KLR with Carson (Macedo) means a great deal to me.

“I look forward to growing my partnership with Lucas Oil like Joe (Gaerte) and Carson have been able to do.”

Macedo is no stranger to the Lucas Oil family and he is pleased to continue the relationship as he transitions to the KLR team.

“Over the past couple years driving Joe Gaerte’s (No.) 3g car, Lucas Oil has been a partner that we are very thankful to have,” said Macedo. “Lucas Oil is full of first-class people that provide a first-class product, so to have them make the transition over to KLR with me and Joe, is something we are pretty proud of.”
