NORCROSS, GA, May 13, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The engine rebuild kits pros at APM Engine Parts want to highlight the recent news concerning Lucas Oil Products co-founder Forrest Lucas' induction into the International Drag Racing Hall of Fame. This honor, which was bestowed to Lucas on March 13th of this year, is granted only to select individuals who demonstrate unwavering commitment and passion about drag racing. He will join the likes of famous legends in the sport such as Tom Hoover, Warren Johnson, John Abbott and Al Bergler, and is very much deserving of the award.
A True Drag Racing Icon
In addition to helping create Lucas Oil Products, a well-known manufacturer of a wide array of engine oil additives, fuel treatments, motor oil and many other performance-enhancing products, Lucas proved his commitment to the sport by sponsoring several Sportsman racers, some of whom participated in the legendary NHRA Top Fuel Class. His induction took place at a banquet hosted at the Paramont Plaza Hotel & Suites one week prior to the launching of the NHRA Gatornationals.
The Chevy crankshaft specialists note that Lucas was quite surprised when he heard the news, mainly due to the fact that he himself had never been a drag racer like many of his predecessors.
According to David DeBuc, Vice President of APM Engine Parts, "It is clear that Don Garlits, Founder of the The Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing where the Hall of Fame is held, recognized Lucas for his major contributions to the sport. It is quite the honor and he definitely deserves a tip of the hat."
