Lucas has positive Vegas vibes
The competition is so tight in the Top Fuel division that any dragster is capable of taking anyone else out. Despite the close rivalry of the POWERade championship's Countdown to 1, there are still 12 drivers vying for the race win, so there's the incentive for the Lucas Oil team to go into
"We're definitely should be considered one of the many teams who have a legitimate shot at winning
In his first professional start in 2004 at the famous dragway, he reached the finals and the next year, he was the No. 1 qualifier, so Lucas is familiar with this racing scene.
"I've been fortunate to be able to race that quarter-mile a bunch of times," said Lucas. "My sportsman days driving on the Lucas Oil series have given me plenty of opportunities to know practically every bump and dip on the track. I have a great feeling about the weekend."
Lucas is classified a long-shot at the Palace Station sports book and for as the risk and gamble, Lucas laughed at his prognosis and stated "With the way we're running, I could make a lot of people pretty rich. Don't count us out."
