“Hawk Performance is proud to expand our partnership with Team Lucas and join the ASCS Sprint Car Dirt Series” said Hawk Performance Marketing Manager, Cody Currie.

“Since we have developed a Sintered Metallic brake pad compound that is specifically designed for ceramic coated brake rotors and to meet the high demands of open wheel sprint car racing, the Lucas Oil ASCS was a perfect fit for Hawk Performance.”

Hawk Performance Products joins not only the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by MAVTV American Real, but also joins the Lucas Oil Late Models, providing complete market coverage for the brake product manufacturer.

“Hawk Performance believes in the people behind Team Lucas and all of the teams involved, which is why we returned as a sponsor of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, along with adding the Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car Dirt Series.”

Born in the industry of aerospace, industrial, and military applications Hawk Performance Products is able to use from their variety of industry involvement to further develop products for auto racing. In doing so, drivers who utilize Hawk Performance Products have earned more championships in the past decade than any other “friction manufacturer”

With that in mind, Hawk Performance Products’ involvement with the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by MAVTV American Real is to provide an improved product to the world of Sprint Car racing.

Currie explained the importance of the contingency program for Hawk Performance Products, “Through our contingency for the Hawk Performance Fastest Lap of the Night and working closely with the drivers and teams, we are excited to assure constant improvement of our line of brake materials and offer the sprint car racer unbeatable braking performance.”
