ASCS Patriots Name Lucas Oil Products Title Sponsor

TULSA, Okla., (January 24, 2009) - On the same night the 2008 season was looked back upon, the largest sponsorship announcement in the history of the ASCS Patriots was announced for the future.

Lucas Oil Products, of Corona, CA, has been named title sponsor of the American Sprint Car Series Patriot Region, which will be sanctioning their seventh season of sprint racing in 2009.

In all instances, the series will be referred to as "Lucas Oil ASCS Patriot Region" or simply "Lucas Oil ASCS Patriots". In addition, a new logo accompanies this announcement, with a traditional Lucas Oil partialblue oval encasing the foundational logo.

"We are excited to have Lucas Oil on board for 2009," noted ASCS Patriot Regional Director Mike Emhof, who is heading into his third season. "Their commitment to motorsports is unquestioned, and we are ready to showcase them to the fans of our region."

"Their involvement will be a benefit to both fans and race teams," added Emhof. "In 2009 we will raise our nightly purse as well as the season-ending point fund, attracting more cars and creating even better racing on the track.

"Lucas Oil is proud to partner with the ASCS Patriot Region for the 2009 season," commented Bob Patison, Executive Vice-President of Lucas Oil Products. "The Series provides great open wheel action with some very talented drivers and quality teams backing them up. Fans definitely get their money's worth and this is an excellent marketing platform for Lucas Oil. Our involvement further underscores the commitment of Lucas Oil to motorsports, at all levels."
