ATTENTION RACERS:

We regret to announce the cancellation of the Marble Falls Lakefest event.

The Lucas Oil Drag Boat Series and the Marble Falls Chamber of Commerce have been involved in discussions regarding this National Series event; however neither party were able to reach a mutually-acceptable agreement.

We are considering many venue options for a replacement event, and expect the location and dates to be announced shortly.

2018 Race Schedule & Rule Changes Officially Released

2018 Purse & Payout Announcement

The Lucas Oil Dragboat Racing Series announced today a total revision of the purse and payout structure, as well as event registration modifications.

In order to continue to promote the series at the highest level, it has become necessary to eliminate costly and non-funded incentive programs, such as “Winner’s Circle” and “Tow Pro” monies that were offered to specific classes under certain circumstances. Those who have pre-paid for the Diamond Club will receive a full refund. Payout will consist solely of the announced purse, which has been increased substantially! We are excited to announce that racers will be competing for a share of $100,000 per event! The payout for all classes is listed here.

Event registration incentives have also changed for 2018. Fees will not increase; however, the program has been modified to be more consistent with other racing series’ and organizations.

Pro Classes will receive, with their paid entry, a total of 6 (six) crew bands, one car pass, and one golf cart pass. Pro Class entries may purchase, at a discounted rate, up to 10 (ten) additional crew bands, plus one additional car pass and one additional cart pass.

Sportsman Classes will receive, with their paid entry, a total of 4 (four) crew bands, one car pass, and one golf cart pass. Pro Class entries may purchase, at a discounted rate, up to 6 (six) additional crew bands, plus one additional car pass and one additional cart pass.

Please direct questions to Paul Hosler at phosler@lucasoil.com, or by calling (800) 342-2512.

ATTENTION RACERS: 2018 Racing Season

Ken and Patti Dollar, who have served as Director and Administrator of the Drag Boat Racing Series for the past 8 years; have announced their retirements, effective immediately. We thank them for their dedication, hard work and loyalty in building and maintaining a great program.

Paul Hosler, the Lucas Oil Products Safety & Regulatory Compliance Director and former National Drag Boat Rescue Director, has been appointed to administer the series. Racers are encouraged to call Paul Hosler or Bob Patison for answers to series-related questions or issues. Both can be reached at the Corporate Office at 800-342-2512.

Please be assured that Forrest Lucas and all of us here at Lucas Oil Products, Inc. are fully-committed to the Drag Boat Racing Series and its continued success. We are working non-stop with our partners at the National Jet Boat Association (NJBA) on 2018’s first National Series event in Bakersfield this coming April. This promises to be one of, if not the, largest drag boat races in decades. We hope to see you there!

Sanders, Nitrochondriac shine in Haas Memorial Top Fuel Hydro final at Lucas Oil Speedway

Wheatland, Missouri (June 12, 2016) - An uneasy wait proved worth it for Byrant Sanders, who celebrated his second Lucas Oil Drag Boat Series Top Fuel Hydro victory of the season on Sunday.

Sanders, driving the Tommy Thompson-owned Nitrochondriac, zipped past Scott Lumbert in the Spirit of Texas in the weather-delayed finals of the 5th annual John Haas Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Sanders, of Houston, Texas, covered the 1,000 feet in 3.67 seconds at 247.93 miles per hour. Lumbert shut down his David Kirkland-owned Spirit of Texas about halfway through the run.

The final event of the day was about ready to run when strong winds off a nearby line of thunderstorms forced the boats off the water and spectators to head for cover. Then, about an hour into the delay, Sanders and Lumbert fired up their boats on the line when a lightning strike apparently shut down the electronic scoring.

"It was rough. It was nerve-wracking. I have a headache right now," Sanders said of the emotions involved with being so close to blasting off the line - twice - and then having to re-set.

"One minute the adrenaline is going through the roof as you're fixing to drive one of these big monsters and then you get pulled back," Sanders said. "You kind of calm down a little bit and you're going through the roof again. It's nerve-wracking, I'll tell you."

But once go-time finally did arrive, Sanders was ready.

"When I close the lid and close that shield, it's game on," Sanders said. "I don't think about anything other than the job I have to do."

It was Nitrochondriac's second victory in three Top Fuel races this season as Sanders increased his championship points lead over Problem Child, driving by Daryl Erlich.

Sanders said after three straight runner-up finishes in the championship chase, the team is on a mission to bring home the big trophy.

"We're having a great season," Sanders said. "We've been in the final round all three races and won two out of the three. Hopefully this is our year. I'm tired of being runner-up. I want that ring."

It was a solid Sunday for Tommy Thompson Motorsports as he also had a winner in the Top Alcohol Flat division. Thompson's Shazam, driven by Tony Scarlata, prevailed in the finals.

Other winners in the pro divisions included: Mike DeClark of Anaheim, Calif., in Little White Lie (Top Alcohol Hydro), Tom Brasher in Desperado (Pro Outlaw) and Kevn Helm of Moore, Okla., in Fist Full of Dollar (Pro Mod).

The event honors the memory of John Haas, the four-time World Champion in Top Fuel Hydro who lost his life in a 2010 qualifying accident in Oklahoma.

The Lucas Oil Drag Boat Series will return to Lucas Oil Speedway Sept. 2-4 for the Diamond Drag Boat Nationals.
