Make that Officer Luckett.” This Team E3 Racing winner is a Romeoville, Illinois police officer. He may issue you a ticket for speeding down the highway during the day, but come the weekend, he’s speeding down the raceway himself, in hot pursuit of a good cause.
“I use my car and status as a police officer to reach out to young people and get them to ‘make the trip to the strip’ and not to race illegally on the street,” he says.
Luckett participates in exhibition and high school races via Beat the Heat, a nonprofit organization comprised of police officers and firefighters nationwide who conduct educational programs using marked emergency vehicle drag cars. Program goals include:
Luckett drives a marked 1980 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme with a 406CID Chevy small block engine powered, of course, by E3 Spark Plugs. We’re proud to have you on board, Officer Luckett!
