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 Oil Drag Boat Racing Series

CHANDLER, Arizona (March 25) - The wildly popular Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series will launch its 10-race 2017 season March 31- April 2 with the Valley of the Sun Spring Nationals on the famous lake at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park.

"We're anticipating our biggest and best season ever," series director Ken Dollar said. "Our fans have been asking for more races so we'll have 10 national events this year, racers have signed up in record numbers, ticket sales are going great, and all of our track owners are prepared to help us put on wonderful shows for the spectators.

"Drag boat racing is a sight to behold. I've never talked to anyone at a race that wasn't completely blown away by the sights, sounds and even the smells of nitro racing on the water. It truly is a visceral experience that leaves a great impression."

Race fans can enjoy three full days of action with Friday consumed by a massive test-and-tune session, followed by a Pro, Sportsman and Bracket class qualifying Saturday, and eliminations in all categories Sunday.

Pro classes to be featured at the Valley of the Sun Spring Nationals include Top Fuel Hydro, Top Alcohol Hydro, Top Alcohol Flat, Pro Modified and Pro Outlaw. Sportsman classes comprise of Pro Eliminator, Top Eliminator, Modified Eliminator and Stock Eliminator. Bracket classes to be featured are River Racer, Personal Watercraft and Personal Watercraft 2.

"We have commitments from more than 900 race teams to compete in our series this season and that's fantastic for the fans," Dollar said. "It all starts in Chandler so grab a friend or two, round up the family and make plans to join us at the drags."

Tickets are priced at $10 for Friday, $25 for Saturday and $20 for Sunday. A three-day pass is $50. General parking is $10 with VIP parking available for $20.
