ORANGE, CALIF. (December 17, 2015) - LAT Racing Oils has signed on as the primary oil sponsor for Elite Motorsports for the 2016 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing season. The premium racing oil company based out of Orange, California will join forces with back-to-back Pro Stock Champion Erica Enders and Five-time Pro Stock Champion Jeg Coughlin.
“We have been involved with teams in the NHRA for many years,” LAT Racing Oils co-founder Danny Vaca said. “We’ve been a big supporter of Allen and Roy Johnson’s program in Pro Stock and when the opportunity came to add Elite to our lineup, it made good business sense to us at LAT.”
“We’ve experienced a lot of success with Allen Johnson when he won the 2012 NHRA Pro Stock Championship. Jeg Coughlin, his teammate at the time, gave us back-to-back Pro Stock Championships by winning in 2013. It’s a great opportunity to be working with Jeg Coughlin again in 2016.”
Vaca credits his long-time friendship with Elite Motorsports engine builder Nick Ferri for being a big influence to come on board with Elite Motorsports.
“I’ve worked with Nick Ferri all the way back to his Mike Edward’s days. I’ve also been friends with Erica, Richie, and team owner Richard Freeman for many years,” Vaca said.

For the past several years, LAT Racing Oils has become one of the leaders in maximum performance racing lubricants for top teams in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.
