Lucas Oil Products Inchas named Matt Conrad as the new General Manager of Lucas Oil. In an announcement made by founder, CEO, and president, Forrest Lucas, Conrad will oversee the day-to-day operations of the Lucas Oil Production Facilities in Corona, California, and Corydon, Indiana.
“As our company has grown and matured, so has our staff. Looking to the future we believe it is time we promoted someone to the position of General Manager,” stated Lucas. “Matt Conrad has been the obvious choice for a long time. Matt is very unselfish and is always looking out for the company and staff. We are pleased to name him General Manager of Lucas Oil.” 

An Indiana native, Conrad brings 15 years worth of Lucas Oil knowledge and experience into his new role, having joined the company in 2004 as a production line worker. Throughout his tenure at Lucas Oil, Conrad has worked within an array of additional departments, such as truck dispatch, shipping, human resources, payroll, I.T., new production line design and startup, and inventory management. He also served as a plant manager and was the General Manager of Lucas Oil Golf Course in English, Indiana. 

“I am very excited about this new opportunity to help Lucas Oil move forward into the future and to take over more of the marketplace. I love being part of a great team that appreciates the company they work for and their team members,” explained Conrad. “One of my main goals will be to ensure we continue producing and shipping the best products as efficiently as possible, while also making our customers happy. I look forward to working closer with everyone in order to achieve these goals. Together we can accomplish more. Whenever everyone works together, ‘It Works!’” 

Conrad and his wife, Kimberly, along with their son, Kaiden, and daughter, Addilynn, will remain residents of their native Hoosier state. This will allow Matt to continue serving his role as a board member of the South Central division of The First Tee of Indiana, a non-profit organization that uses golf to teach life lessons to Indiana youth. This involvement coincides perfectly with Conrad’s new General Manager role at Lucas Oil, where he can fulfill his passion for helping people succeed as a team.

“A group of us were together at the World Series of Drag Racing at Cordova—which itself is an end-of-the-season match race—and we thought it would be a good deal to bring back match racing year-round like they used to. So I called [Jim’s son] Jeff Wick to see if we could use the MPSA name. He was on board and even wanted to help and compete, too,” Lawrence said to PRI. “Jeff will compete in the Matchmaker car they haven’t run since Jim’s passing.”
