"The partnership between Lucas Oil and NXG exemplifies our shared vision of empowering the next generation through STEM education and motorsports," said Michael Smith, community and engagement director for NXG Youth Motorsports. "We are grateful for Lucas Oil's unwavering support these past 17 years, helping us provide life-changing opportunities to girls and boys from underrepresented backgrounds, setting them on a path to success in both academic and professional realms."
