Racing is my passion and I love meeting the fans and having conversations with everyone I meet at the track. It is my goal to be an extension of your company and a great ambassador for your brand.
Also, on the agenda will be a taste of asphalt stock car racing!
Lucas's heartfelt words are, "Racing is my passion and I love meeting the fans and having conversations with everyone I meet at the track, especially the kids. I love the kids. It’s important to me to earn respect from the kids and their parents, so I do my best. I have accelerated my high school education as well. I am attending Shasta College with a goal of having 1 year of college completed when I graduate from high school."
"Success is when preparation meets opportunity."
