The company also will be an event title sponsor on a NBC Sports Network telecast of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, and a presenting sponsor on both the NBC Sports Network and MAVTV telecasts for the Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series. Additional on-air exposure will feature Optima Batteries as an on-board camera sponsor in select telecasts of the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League airing on CBS, NBC Sports Network and MATTV.  

New in 2014 is the Optima Batteries Faceoff. This will be held at four different rounds of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series and will pit two racers chosen by social media voting against each other in a three-lap faceoff for cash and bragging rights.

The No. 18 racecar of Corry Weller will again be carrying the Optima Batteries colors and logo in the PRO 4 championship.    

In the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, Optima will sponsor Ray Cook’s No. 56 racecar and in the Lucas Oil Modified Series they will sponsor the No. 10 racecar of Tim Morse.

The company also will sponsor a Fast Lap Award in the four professional classes of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series and the Optima Batteries Hard Charger Award in both the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and the Lucas Oil Modified Series.
