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!

Top Fuel Record Falls at Marble Falls Lakefest

Marble Falls, Texas (August 30, 2016) - During the weekend of August 12-14, 2016 at the Marble Falls Lakefest, Bryan Sanders drove the Tommy Thompson-owned Nitrochondriac Top Fuel Hydro to a record setting 3.3859-second run in the final round of qualifying on Saturday. The 3.3859 elapsed time run was 1/100th of a second quicker than the former record of 3.396-seconds held by Daryl Ehrlich in the Eddie Knox-owned Problem Child machine, established at the same venue in August of 2011.

Sanders backed up the record leg in the second round of competition on Sunday when he clicked off a 3.4192 second ET on his run against Lee Warren in the Whiskey River machine. He needed to run a minimum of 3.4198 seconds to secure the new record. The record pass was also the second quickest 1,000-foot elapsed time run in the history of the sport.

Team owner Tommy Thompson stated, “I just can’t de- scribe how proud I am of all of the crew, and I am so appreciative of all the help and support from our newest member, engine builder and tuner, Tom Conway.

When asked what it meant to be the new Top Fuel ET record holder, driver Bryan Sanders said, “It’s a group effort. I give credit to the team; they all made it hap- pen.” Bryan’s wife, Dorri, added “I have never been so happy and proud to be a part of this team. They have worked so hard and really deserve this honor. It was truly a memorable moment.”

The Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series heads to Wheatland, Missouri over Labor Day weekend for the seventh of a nine-race National series with the staging of the Diamond Drag Boat Nation- als. With the winding down of the 2016 season, the points chase in several of the National and Division 2 and 3 classes is very close, so this is an event you will not want to miss.
