Sunoco signs extended deal with LOLMDS – Race for Gas program expanded

BATAVIA, OH – Sunoco Race Fuels – an industry powerhouse manufacturer of high-performance racing fuels – will continue their exclusive partnership as the “Official Fuel” of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series through 2020.

For decades, Sunoco’s fuels have been associated with racing excellence. Today, Sunoco has expanded the reach of its racing fuels line around the world to include all types of professional motor sports and other activities where premium race fuels make a difference.

With its unsurpassed innovations and years of experience, it’s easy to understand why more and more engine builders, racers, tracks and sanctioning bodies choose Sunoco over all other racing gasoline combined. It takes high-performance racing fuels that are willing to go the distance – fuels like those produced by Sunoco. As the largest manufacturer of racing gasolines in the world, Sunoco has a 40-year track record of winning performances.

“We’re able to bring the excitement of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series to fans across the country because of the help from dedicated partners like Sunoco Race Fuels,” said Rick Schwallie, Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Director. “Above all, the friendships and relationships we’ve built among their company employees, our staff, and everyone involved is second-to-none.
