Lucas Oil, the long-term oil and lubricant supplier to Arrow McLaren SP in the NTT IndyCar Series will celebrate the extension of their 17 year partnership as they serve as primary sponsor to Juan Pablo Montoya for this weekend’s GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course on Saturday as the Colombian prepares to return to the racing in the NTT IndyCar Series for the first time in four years.

Juan Pablo Montoya, a two-time Indianapolis 500 winner will pilot the No.86 Lucas Oil Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet this weekend alongside Felix Rosenqvist and Texas race two winner Pato O’Ward.

Speaking about today’s announcement, Montoya said:

“I am excited to represent Lucas Oil during the GMR Grand Prix on the Indianapolis Road Course. This will be my first race back in INDYCAR since 2017 and I couldn’t pick a better car to be coming home in. I think the red and black is really going to pop on track and I look forward to getting my first laps in on Friday. Indianapolis is incredibly important to me and I’m happy to be working with a partner that shares that love for the community and the sport.”

Arrow McLaren SP Team co-owner Sam Schmidt commented on the partnership extension saying:

“It’s an honor to continue representing Lucas Oil, who have been with the team almost since the beginning. It’s a rare privilege to have partners in motorsport that stay around for more than a few years and this team has a few, including Lucas Oil. As we continue working with Forrest and his team this year, what better time to announce than at the height of the INDYCAR season, the Month of May.”

Founder of Lucas Oil, Forrest Lucas, commented saying:

“The importance the Arrow McLaren SP team places on hard work and their steadfast determination to be the best both on and off the track are major reasons why our partnership has thrived for nearly two decades. These values are a driving force behind Lucas Oil and we hope to continue our relationship with the Arrow McLaren SP team for years to come. May is a big month for motorsports here in Indianapolis and we look forward to celebrating some podium finishes with the entire team!”
