By Tommy Goudge (March 29, 2017) – Ohsweken, Ontario – Ohsweken Speedway officials are proud to announce a new partnership with Lucas Oil Products Canada Inc. which includes sponsorship of the track’s Victory Lane.
The new agreement began to take shape in November when Ohsweken Speedway General Manager Clinton Geoffrey received an e-mail from Lucas Oil account executive Matt Irvine.
“I have been watching your track for some years now,” stated Irvine in that e-mail. “I have admired how innovative you have been, and how hard you work to bring excitement to your events. Lucas Oil is looking to change things up and move forward with new and exciting partners in racing in Canada.”
“They’ve chosen to come with us, and we are very proud to have them as part of our Ohsweken family,” exclaimed Geoffrey. “To get an e-mail from Lucas Oil was excellent, especially right after telling everyone at our awards banquet that the corporate world would come knocking if we keep things positive!”
Lucas Oil Products began with the simple philosophy of producing only the best line of lubricants and additives available anywhere. Lucas has long been directly involved in the racing industry through sponsorships and event promotions at all levels. Seeing a need for better lubricants in this industry, the Lucas people went to work and developed a line of high-performance engine oils and gear oils that are second-to-none. With Canadian headquarters in Mississauga, Ontario, Lucas Oil Products Canada Inc. can be reached by phone at 888-878-6973, or found online at www.LucasOil.ca
