GEICO pro Lucas geared up for Western Swing
Morgan Lucas and the GEICO/Lucas Oil Top Fuel dragster team are set to embark on one of the NHRA Full Throttle Series' most grueling stretches – the vaunted Western Swing.
The three-week, three-race journey of more than 2,000 highway miles gets underway this weekend with the Mopar Mile High NHRA Nationals at Denver's Bandimere Raceway.
"I love Denver, I love the track, and I love the setting," Lucas said. "It's one of the coolest places we get to race all year long."
To help lighten up the grind of three straight weeks on the road, Lucas said he builds in fun things away from the track to liven things up.
"We're going to have a great event in Denver with all of our GEICO Racing teammates," Lucas said. "We're also going to check out Golden, visit NORAD, and maybe squeeze in some whitewater rafting in with the crew guys, too."
While on the Western Swing, Lucas will try to improve his standing in the Countdown to the Championship. Lucas and the GEICO dragster currently sit eighth in the Top Fuel point standings, 43 points behind seventh place Brandon Bernstein.
