Lucas Oil Expands Partnership with RCR and Kyle Busch in 2024

The Indianapolis, IN-based company will partner with RCR and Busch for multiple NASCAR Cup Series races and also continue as the official motor oil of ECR engines.

Lucas Oil Products, a long-time partner of both Richard Childress Racing and ECR Engines, will expand its partnership with Richard Childress Racing and Kyle Busch in 2024, the companies announced. The Indianapolis, IN-based company will partner with RCR and Busch for multiple NASCAR Cup Series races and also continue as the official motor oil of ECR engines. 

Lucas Oil will also serve as primary sponsor for both Kyle and Brexton Busch. Kyle will feature the Lucas Oil colors when he competes in the Micro Sprint car series. Kyle will debut the Lucas Oil colors on December 26 in The Tulsa Shootout. Brexton will also have Lucas on board in his 2024 racing program.   

“RCR and ECR share our passion for motorsports, from the grassroots to the highest levels of the sport,” said Brandon Bernstein, director of partnership marketing for Lucas Oil Products. “We share Kyle’s passion for short track racing and are excited to help Brexton take the next step in his career. We’ve seen first-hand the benefits of our partnership, especially as it relates to technology transfer over to short track racers and everyday consumers. We’re proud to continue to commit our resources in R&D and production, and to highlight our premier oil performance with sponsorship of the No. 8 Chevrolet.”  

Lucas Oil has served as the official lubricant of RCR and ECR Engines since 2014 and is the official motor oil of ECR Engines. RCR, ECR and Lucas Oil have gone to NASCAR Victory Lane together more than 20 times since the partnership began.  

Busch piloted the No. 8 Lucas Oil Chevrolet to victory in the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series race at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif. The win came in their first race together and was the first victory for Lucas Oil in the NASCAR Cup Series. It was also the first for Busch at RCR and extended his streak of 19 consecutive seasons with at least one victory at NASCAR’s highest level.  

“RCR and ECR have benefited greatly from having a lubricants partner with strong roots in racing,” said Torrey Galida, president of RCR. “It was incredibly gratifying to see the No. 8 Lucas Oil Chevrolet in Victory Lane. It was a testament to all of the resources, expertise, and hard work the Lucas/ECR team has committed to giving us a huge competitive advantage.”
