The NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series is pleased to announce it returns after a 2-month hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The series makes its return to action this weekend at Texas Motorplex with a Top Alcohol only regional event. Action will intensify early June at Atlanta Dragway and Tulsa Raceway Park as all categories restart their season.
In addition to the full schedule of Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series events, a JEGS SPORTSnationals event has been added at New England Dragway on August 21-22. This is in addition to the JEGS SPORTSnationals “doubleheader” at National Trail Raceway on July 16-19. Race teams attending the JEGS SPORTSnationals events will have an opportunity to earn national championship points and a grade point.
Due to the abbreviated season, the championship structure for national, regional and divisional points has been adjusted.
