Brandon Bernstein will drive the MavTV/Lucas Oil Top Fuel dragster for Morgan Lucas Racing beginning in 2012. He takes the seat of Shawn Langdon, who had driven the car the last three years.

“Brandon Bernstein is the total package,” Lucas said. “He brings an amazing presence, a professional attitude and a tremendous fan following to this race team, not to mention his obvious ability behind the wheel of a Top Fuel dragster. He’s the perfect choice to fill the seat and represent our sponsors.”

Bernstein has won 18 Top Fuel events, driving for the team owned by his father, Kenny Bernstein.

“I’m honored to have this chance to drive for MavTV, Lucas Oil and Morgan Lucas Racing,” Bernstein said. “It was a stressful holiday season, to be honest, as I accessed the limited opportunities out there. It wasn’t much fun, until today.

“Racing with my dad was a dream come true and now I have a very unique chance to race with my second family – Forrest, Charlotte and Morgan Lucas. We raced with the Lucas Oil brand on our cars for many years and it’s great to come back into the fold. I feel an immense amount of gratitude to them for giving me this chance.”

Lucas and Bernstein will begin testing for the upcoming season on Jan. 16 at Palm Beach International Raceway in south Florida.

The seat became available after Langdon signed to drive a Top Fuel car for Al-Anabi Racing next season.
