The agreement is comprised of 4 Wheel Parts being named “Official Off Road Parts Retailer” of the popular short course off road racing series, the expansion of their successful “Youth Ticket Program,” along with a dynamic Lucas Oil Products marketing and promotional effort in all 74 North American 4 Wheel Parts retail store locations.

“4 Wheel Parts has enjoyed a long and successful affiliation with our friends at Lucas Oil,” said Adler. “We have their products on our shelves, we rely on them in our race cars and we connect with our customers through our participation in their series both as a sponsor and as a team. Our collaboration with Lucas demonstrates what can be achieved through a truly great partnership.”
This season, 4 Wheel Parts will once again partner with the series in distributing complimentary tickets to youth under 12 years of age throughout the regions where short course off-road events will be held. The free youth tickets will also be available at participating 4 Wheel Parts stores. 4 Wheel Parts will also be bestowed the official designation as a series sponsor in addition to the being recognized as title sponsor of the year-end, season finale at Chandler’s Wild Horse Motorsports Park in October.
“We take immense pride in the fact that our connection with 4 Wheel Parts extends well beyond a traditional sponsorship,” said Jamie Devney, Team Lucas Vice President of Brand Development. “With our business to business relationship along with our joint promotional efforts complementing their engagement, 4 Wheel Parts is a valued partner.
