GEICO renews with Morgan Lucas Racing through 2014December 15, 2011 · 0 Comments
Insurance giant GEICO has renewed its agreement with Morgan Lucas Racing and NHRA Top Fuel driver Morgan Lucas for three more years.
GEICO originally joined Lucas’ drag racing team in 2009, a career-best season for the 28-year-old from Brownburg, Ind., that featured three victories and a berth in the Countdown to the Championship playoffs. The former sportsman level star has become a fixture in the elite top 10 ever since, representing GEICO at more than 20 NHRA national events each year.
“I know without question we have the best sponsor in the world,” Lucas said. “GEICO is a true partner in every sense of the word and their understanding of motorsports and drag racing in particular is unparalleled. It’s very simple — we could not do this without GEICO. Quite frankly, we wouldn’t want to race without them. We’ve become so close to so many people within the organization. They are part of our family.”
Lucas is the youngest son of Forrest and Charlotte Lucas, the founders of Lucas Oil Products. GEICO and Lucas Oil are partners in numerous sporting entities, including the GEICO Endurocross Series presented by Lucas Oil and the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series presented by GEICO.
GEICO’s renewed support of Morgan Lucas Racing comes on the heels of the team’s signing of crew chief Aaron Brooks and assistant tuner Rod Centorbi, who joined the group in late November.
