CASTROL RETURNS TO NHRA SPONSORSHIP AFTER NINE YEARS AWAY
Published April 14, 1998
The Texas Motorplex and the NHRA announced that Castrol Motor Oil and HiLO/O'Reilly Auto Part Stores would take over title rights sponsorship of the Spring Winston Drag Racing Series event. The 2nd Annual NHRA Castrol Lone Star Nationals presented by HiLO/O'Reilly Auto Parts will take place April 30-May 3 (Texas Motorplex). Last year's inaugural race drew 101,117 fans. Motorplex Owner Billy Meyer declined to discuss the dollar value of the new sponsorship package (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 4/10). The deal marks the first time since '89 that Castrol has been a major sponsor of an NHRA race (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 4/10).
