With the talk of NHRA Pro Football player Duce Staley soon to field an NHRA Pro Stocker, yet another team has unvieled their NHRA connection. Morgan Lucas Racing will unveil a tribute to the construction and the 2008 grand opening of the Lucas Oil Stadium in the form of a special Mac Tools U.S. Nationals paint scheme.

“I think it’s exciting,” said Lucas.  “I think our relationship with the Indianapolis Colts is just as good as our relationship as we developed with the NHRA and drag racing.  There is a lot of focus and things that can benefit drag racing from the Colts and many things from the Colts that can benefit drag racing.  We’re going a different avenue and our intent is solely good in marketing our company.  In a way, it can actually activate our sponsorship with drag racing a little more and vice versa with the Colts to show that, we are a prominent oil company and we’re serious about our business.  Bottom line – we’re here to sell Lucas Oil.  We’re serious players, and we want people to understand that. 

“We decided on this paint scheme because my whole family is from this beautiful state.  The city of Indianapolis is not given enough credit as one of the great cities in the nation.  Its community minded and people oriented.  It’s a good place to be.  We want to express to the city and people of the state that we actually care and we’re giving something back in trying to promote this team and promote what we’ve done with it to show we want to be part of this for a long time.”
