The Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event that was scheduled this weekend at Thunder Valley Raceway Park in Noble, Okla., has been rescheduled for Oct. 26-28. With the amount of rain that the facility has received and is forecast to receive over the event weekend it does not look favorable to keep the event as scheduled. The daily schedule will remain the same as below.

The event is one of 44 scheduled across the country where drivers in the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series earn points leading to divisional, regional and national championships as well as a chance at a share of the year-end purse of more than $519,000.
