NHRA and World Wide Technology Raceway have announced that the track’s popular NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series regional event, originally scheduled for October, will move to the weekend of Sept. 26-27 following the addition of a Lucas Oil Series divisional event on Sept. 24-25. The two events precede the track’s annual AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event.
“The many changes taking place with venues throughout the country presented this unique opportunity,” said Chris Blair, World Wide Technology Raceway’s Executive Vice President and General Manager. “One of the biggest expenses faced by the sportsman racer is the cost of getting to and from the track. This schedule adjustment will provide racers with the opportunity to make one haul to the St. Louis area, compete in two Lucas Oil Series events and remain on-site for the following weekend’s AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals.”
