"Lucas Oil has partnered with
Mel at the PSCA to bring back the Top Comp class to
some of our high horse powered dragsters and door cars that could only
race bracket one due to electronics used on the race cars," said Lucas
Oil Products Director of Motorsports Tom Bogner. "I feel this is a great
class as our fans want to see fast cars and with the cars having to run
a 8.60 to get into the field every car will be fast and even if using a
throttle stop the vehicle will not be on it very long so the fans will
"I like the fact as well that if
you fail to qualify for the field you can run Bracket 1 so is our racers
have the potential for 2 classes and lots of seat time."
"We're very thankful that Lucas
Oil has stepped up to partner with us to add yet another great class to
our program," said PSCA President Mel Roth. "The entire Lucas Oil family
of products have provided results for both our racers and our fans and
we're proud to represent them at our events." Check out the entire

In addition to the Top Comp
class, Lucas Oil, through their Slick Mist brand, is also sponsoring a
car show at each event. "Lucas Oil has also been able to promote our
Slick Mist line of cleaning products via the Slick Mist Car show
series," Bogner said. "I remember the days of packed stands at Super
Chevy at Pomona and the excitement of both racing and walking around and
seeing the many cars at the car show section. We have been getting some
really awesome cars up to Las Vegas for car show yet would really like
to see this program grow."
The next PSCA event, the
MagnaFuel Vegas Nationals, is scheduled for April 27-29 at The Strip at
Las Vegas Motor Speedway. For information on this and other LVMS events,
