Lucas Oil, a long-time partner of Richard Childress Racing (RCR) and ECR Engines, will enhance its relationship with RCR for the upcoming season, the organization announced on Monday.

In addition to continued technical and development support, Lucas Oil, the official motor oil of ECR Engines, will serve as the primary sponsor for Kyle Busch’s No. 8 Chevrolet Camaro at Auto Club Speedway.

“RCR and ECR share our passion for motorsports, from the grassroots to the highest levels of the sport,” said Brandon Bernstein, director of partnership marketing for Lucas Oil. “We’ve seen first-hand the benefits of our partnership, especially as it relates to technology transfer over to short-track racers and everyday consumers. We’re proud to continue to commit our resources in R&D and production, and to highlight our premier oil performance with the sponsorship of the No. 8 Chevrolet.”

Richard Childress Racing, ECR Engines, and Lucas Oil have gone to victory lane in NASCAR’s National Series more than 20 times since the company became the official lubricant of RCR and ECR in 2014.

“Lucas Oil’s market-leading products have long contributed to the incredible durability and on-track success of ECR’s engines in many forms of motorsports,” said Bob Fisher, senior vice president of ECR Engines. “We’re proud to be able to use our high-powered competition platform to showcase Lucas Oil’s key technologies and continue to win races and championships with their R&D support.”

Through continued innovative product development and research, along with marketing programs of an aggressive nature, Lucas Oil has established itself as an industry-leader, producing only the best line of lubricants and additives available

“RCR and ECR have benefited from having a lubricants partner with strong roots in racing,” said Torrey Galida, president of RCR. “We’re incredibly thankful to Lucas for all of the resources and expertise they provide to give us a competitive on-track advantage.”

Lucas Oil joins a long list of sponsors that will be supporting Kyle Busch in 2023, including BetMGM, 3CHI, Alsco Uniforms, and Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen.
