The 2019 season is a year of celebrating special anniversaries, and with that in mind Richard Childress Racing (RCR) will help celebrate long-time partner Lucas Oil's 30th anniversary by running a commemorative scheme on Daniel Hemric's No. 8 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 for this weekend's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series event at Dover International Speedway.
Richard Childress Racing to Honor Lucas Oil's 30th Anniversary on No. 8 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 at Dover International Speedway
The special scheme will bring together a total of three special anniversaries, as both RCR and Dover International Speedway are also celebrating 50 years. Lucas Oil has served as the Official Lubricant of RCR and ECR Engines since 2014 and is the Official Motor Oil of ECR Engines. Together, RCR, ECR and Lucas Oil have gone to NASCAR Victory Lane over 20 times since the partnership began.
Much like RCR, Lucas Oil was founded by Forrest and Charlotte Lucas, self-made businesspeople who came from humble beginnings and were able to build an organization into an internationally recognized brand.
"In addition to being a great friend over the years, Forrest Lucas and his team have developed outstanding high-performance products that have helped RCR and ECR Engines to succeed on the racetrack as well," said Richard Childress, chairman and CEO, Richard Childress Racing. "We're proud of our partnership with Lucas Oil and are honored to celebrate milestone anniversaries alongside one another."
Throughout the 2019 season, RCR has been highlighting the partnership with Lucas Oil through a variety of content series, commemorative decals and now a special scheme on Hemric's No. 8 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.
