NHRA releases 2014 Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series schedule

11/10/2013

The NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series returns for the 13th season with premier events taking
 
place across the country in all seven NHRA divisions.  The 2014 schedule will feature 42 divisional events with a minimum of five in each of the seven divisions. There will also be 26 regional events featuring the 250-mph Top Alcohol Dragster and Funny Car classes.

 

The 2014 season will see a return to Orlando Speed World Dragway in Orlando, Fla., Gateway Motorsports Park in St. Louis and Thunder Road Raceway Park in Gilliam, La. The 2014 season will begin in Orlando Feb. 7-9, and concludes in Las Vegas, Nov. 6-9.

 

The ultra-competitive series will feature three sportsman-focused national events during the season, including the JEGS Cajun SPORTSNationals at No Problem Raceway, March 21-23; the JEGS Northern SPORTSNationals returns to National Trail Raceway, September 19-21; and the JEGS Pacific SPORTSNationals, Oct. 3-5 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

 

Regional, divisional and national championship points as well as a purse of more than $500,000 in seven categories will be up for grabs during the course of the racing season.

 

“Racers and teams competing in the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series are such an integral part of our sport,” said Morgan Lucas of Lucas Oil Products. “We will never lose sight of the fact they helped build Lucas Oil into the worldwide brand it has become. These people are like family to us and we’re honored to continue our support.”

 

Bonus programs available to competitors in the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series include the $100,000 JEGS Allstars, and the NHRA Perfectly Strange Performance Award, in which a total of $45,000 is on the table for racers too grab during the season. Individual divisions may also have additional bonus programs available to racers.

 

Some prominent graduates of the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series who have gone on to successful careers in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series include Brandon Bernstein, Morgan Lucas, Shawn Langdon, Courtney Force, Alexis DeJoria, Tim Wilkerson and Jeg Coughlin.
