Morgan Lucas, son of company founders Forrest and Charlotte Lucas, has been named the president of Lucas Oil Products, a California-based distributor and manufacturer of motor oils and additives and sponsor of NHRA's hugely popular Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series.
Morgan, previously the company’s Senior Vice President, will take over the reins as Lucas Oil continues to grow and expand into different markets. In his new position as President, he will report directly to his father.
“I could not be more proud of the professional Morgan has grown up to be,” said Forrest Lucas. “He has worked his way to the top of this company from the ground up and truly showed his potential to us since day one. He’s earned the respect of his teammates, and he’s definitely earned mine.”
“Today, I am honored and humbled to assume the role of President of Lucas Oil Products,” said Morgan. “This incredible opportunity is one that I do not take lightly and thanks to our amazing executive management team and all of our hard-working employees, I know our future is bright.
“I have watched my father and mother work tirelessly and make countless sacrifices to take Lucas Oil from its modest beginnings to grow it into the thriving enterprise that it is today. The mission they have instilled has always been to exemplify hard work and integrity through the creation of high quality, problem-solving products with an unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction. Continuing their successful approach and being open-minded to new opportunities amidst the ever-changing marketplace, I am confident we will continue to grow as a company for many years to come.
Morgan’s career started with his professional racing debut in 2004 and he soon went on to establish his own race team, Morgan Lucas Racing where he won multiple event championships. It was there that he was able to gain first-hand experience of the effects of lubricants in combustion engines. This knowledge proved to be invaluable as he expanded his commitment and role at Lucas Oil Products.
