Speedco Triple Crown Of Racing Points Series will pay additional $13,000.00

Lucas Oil is pleased and excited to announce the expansion of its marketing sponsorship with Speedco Truck Lube and Tires to the Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series in 2013. A long time partner with Lucas Oil Products, Speedco joined forces with the drag boat series in 2012 with a sponsorship of the Tequila Sunrise Top Fuel Hydro and will be combining that in 2013 with an additional $13,000 commitment in cash awards to be paid to the Triple Crown Of Racing winners in the Top Fuel Hydro, Top Alcohol Flatbottom, Pro Modified and Pro Eliminator classes. Speedco Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Mike Barrett stated, "Our partnership with Team Lucas, combined with a grass roots style of motorsports marketing, has been proven to work well over the past several years and the inclusion of the drag boat racing series just seemed to be a natural fit. The expansion of Lucas Oil Drag Boat Series events out west in 2013 is geographically appealing to our marketing strategy, as well."

The Speedco Triple Crown of Racing program will consist of a three-race points series to be run in conjunction with the 10-race LODBRS National points series. Top Fuel Hydro, Top Alcohol Flat and Pro Modified will accumulate points at the June 7-10 event at Wheatland, Missouri, the August 9-11 event in Marble Falls, Texas and the inaugural Thunder On The River at Lake Havasu City, Arizona on October 11-13. The Top Fuel winner will be paid $5,000.00 while Top Alcohol Flat and Pro Modified will earn $2,500.00 each.

Pro Eliminator racers running under LODBRS Divisions 1, 2 and 3 will compete for points at three races in each of their respective divisions and each divisional winner will receive a payout of $1,000.00. Division 1 racers will accumulate points at Irvine Lake, California, San Diego, California and Lake Havasu City, Arizona while Division 2 contenders will earn points at San Angelo, Texas, Marble Falls, Texas and the August 30-Sept 1 Diamond Drag Boat Nationals in Wheatland, Missouri. Division 3 participants will collect points from both Wheatland, Missouri events and at the Augusta Southern Nationals in Augusta, Georgia.

A receipt for service from any Speedco Truck Lube and Tire location nationwide dated anytime between March 1, 2013 and the date of the first event in the respective category of the Triple Crown Series is the only eligibility requirement for the payout.
