E3 Spark Plugs, the fuel efficient, low emissions, high performance spark plug that is now available for most small engine, powersport and automotive applications, has completed it’s inaugural year as a sponsoring member of the grassroots motorsports Team Lucas program.
Team Lucas, owned and operated by Lucas Oil Products, Inc., is the group that oversees the companies title sponsorships of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, Lucas Oil Pro Pulling Series, Super Clean ASA Modified Series, World Series Of Off Road Racing, IHBA Hot Boat Series, Lucas Oil Speedway, Lucas Oil Production Studios, and a presence in the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts Lucas Oil Stadium. These Team Lucas entities represent over 400 annual live events plus 200 plus hours of prime time television programming on ESPN2, the Speed Channel and Versus Networks.
E3 President, Todd Arey, says, “We are so pleased to be part of such an exciting array of racing series in support of grassroots motorsports. The same initiative and creativity that sparks the drive to race is found at E3, and Team Lucas provides us a way to advertise our amazing line of plugs to racers and race fans alike at local tracks all across the U.S. Team Lucas has delivered in every way and during this first year of the sponsorship we have received an overwhelming positive response. We can’t wait to see what 2009 holds for our company.”
During it’s inaugural year of involvement, E3 found itself as the title sponsor of the World Series of Off-Road Racing (WSORR) E3 Spark Plugs Show-Me-State Showdown held in May, on the hood of driver Jason Patison’s NASCAR Whelen Super Late Model Series and NASCAR Camping World Series car where he finished on the podium three times this season, on WSORR driver Kevin Probst’s Pro 2WD truck where he finished in 2nd place in the points for the season and had three 1st place finishes.
“I enjoyed being able to bring E3 a few of their very fist victories in racing,” said driver Kevin Probst. “We scored 8 top 5 finishes, and finished 2nd in the points for the season, while running the E3 branded truck. That truck was definitely the fastest truck in the series and Todd and his crew at E3 were very instrumental in our 2008 success. Every where we went everyone was curious about E3 so I’m glad that while we were out there winning races, we were also able to help them brand their product.”
Bob Patison, Lucas Oil President, says, “E3 has been an excellent addition to Team Lucas, a quality company with a quality performance product. We’re excited to see what the future holds for Team Lucas and for the opportunity for greater brand awareness for all nine companies that compose Team Lucas.”
Other current Team Lucas sponsors include K&N Engineering, General Tire, Jim Beam, Super Clean, Dixie Choppers, R&L Carriers, and Fatheadz Eyewear.
