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.

Lucas PR New Starting Format

ATTENTION RACERS New Racing Format For 2017 Season. LODBRS Officials have issued a new racing format for the 2017 race season.

Effective immediately, the starting line holding rope will be located fifty (50) feet behind the starting line. The start clock will remain at the same location in order to facilitate a good view of the countdown. The shorter starting length was decided upon in order to help insure safety and also to make the starting sequence in drag boat racing more closely aligned to that which is seen in asphalt drag racing. Because of the shorter distance from the holding rope to the start clock, elapsed times will be affected and therefore, class indexes will have to be reset.

In order to determine the new indexes as quickly as possible, the ADBA/LODBRS Division 1 race event scheduled in Parker, Arizona during the weekend of February 10- 12, 2017 will provide for both 1,000- foot and 1,320-foot times and both capsule boats and open boats will be invited to run. A Test and Tune session will be held on Friday, February 10, to reset the indexes. Because some adjustments may need to be made after this first race, the LODBRS National Series opener at Wild Horse Pass in Chandler, Arizona will offer another Test and Tune opportunity on Friday, March 31, 2017 to tweak the new indexes. After that, the new indexes will be permanently set.

All racers are encouraged to attend the ADBA / LODBRS Division 1 season opener in Parker, Arizona in order to get a handle on reaction times and elapsed times About Team Lucas Team Lucas is an entertainment package for race fans across the country and a dynamic advertising and marketing medium for companies everywhere.
