The Arrow McLaren NTT INDYCAR SERIES team announced on Wednesday that they have entered into a multi-year contract extension with longtime sponsor Lucas Oil.
The Indianapolis-based based company manufactures oils and lubricant for engines and gearboxes and has been a partnership to the NTT INDYCAR SERIES team since 2004.
Matt Dennington, Executive Director, Partnerships and Accelerator, McLaren Racing, said:
“We are thrilled to extend our partnership with Lucas Oil, a long-standing partner that has been with the team for nearly two decades. Through growth and changes, their support has been integral for our team. We look forward to continuing our journey as we scale up Arrow McLaren’s presence to a three-car entry into the NTT INDYCAR SERIES.”
Arrow McLaren team owner Sam Schmidt said:
“Lucas Oil has been a champion of our team for nearly 20 years and through many team changes. The relationship with Lucas Oil has been incredibly important for the team; they’ve been an Indy 500 partner for us every year since 2004. A partnership of this length is certainly special, and to think back on how it’s evolved over the years is a testament to their support and the quality we place on the partnerships we have as a team.”
Brandon Bernstein, Director of Partnership Marketing, with Lucas Oil said:
“For nearly two decades, the Arrow McLaren team has relied on our products to perform at the very highest levels of INDYCAR racing, and it’s an honor to extend our partnership as they expand their operation with a third entry for the upcoming season. Lucas Oil’s commitment to supplying the very best oils and additives to its race teams is why our relationship with Arrow McLaren has been so successful, and we are thrilled at the opportunity to continue this for the 2023 season and beyond.”
The news means that Lucas Oil branding will continue to appear on the Arrow McLaren cars of Pato O’Ward, Felix Rosenqvist and Alexander Rossi starting with this weekend’s Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg.
