History behind Lucas Oil Products
Lucas Oil Products was founded by Forrest Lucas and his wife Charlotte in 1989. Prior to that, Forrest was a truck driver for over 20 years and Charlotte was a owner of her hair salon and hairstylist. When they got married, he and Charlotte became owners of a nationwide long haul trucking fleet. They experienced first hand the need for better lubricants and fuel treatment to maintain their own fleet.
Given their personal experience in the trucking industry and saw their trucks breaking down so much due to heat, strain on motors,etc. So Forrest and Charlotte started Lucas Oil Products with the simple philosophy of producing only the best line of lubricants and additives available anywhere. Since its inception, Lucas has steadfastly adhered to this corporate objective. Through innovative product research and development, along with aggressive marketing programs, Lucas has established itself as a top selling additive line in the American truck stop industry.
Lucas is also one of the fastest growing additive lines in the consumer automotive industry. A premium line of oils, greases and problem solving additives has helped to firmly establish Lucas as a prominent figure in this marketplace.
Lucas also produces a heavy duty line of products for the industrial and agricultural markets. President Forrest Lucas sums it up, "Our forte' is to make better products for industries and speciality situations that are not having their needs completely satisfied by other oil products and, believe me, the major oil companies have left a lot of weak spots. We have an excellent staff and a world of technology which we have gained through years of research. Together we have done a great deal in a short period of time and we intend to do a lot more."
Lucas has long been directly involved in the American racing industry through multiple vehicle sponsorships and racing event promotions, at all levels. Seeing a need for better lubricants in this industry, the Lucas people went to work again. The end result being a line of high performance engine oils and gear oils that are second-to-none in the racing industry. Lucas racing products have proven themselves on NASCAR, NHRA, IHRA, USHRA and ATPA tracks across the county. Now we are expanding into the rally program.
