CORONA, Calif. (Feb. 20, 2014) - Gazillion Bubbles will create fun-filled displays with bubble machines blowing bubbles and bubble products for children to play with at five Team Lucas events this year, three in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series and two in the Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series.

Gazillion Bubbles, a premium brand of bubble solution and bubble products created and manufactured by Funrise Toy Corp., has also built a Gazillion Bubble Car modified to blow bubbles that will lead the pace truck and top three vehicles to the podiums at all five events. The Team Lucas program will also include handing out Gazillion Bubbles-branded clear beach balls and stickers and a 20-foot tall inflatable Gazillion Bubbles bottle will be displayed in the center of the track at all five events.
