As I transition into my role as Chairman, I am excited at the opportunity to spend more time on different projects as we continue the family legacy of the company with Morgan and Katie. I am confident the work they are doing will ensure Lucas Oil is positioned to meet and exceed the future challenges and opportunities of this market.”
