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.

Wheatland, Missouri (August 18, 2017) - Just two weeks before the world's fastest boats return to Lucas Oil Speedway, fans still have an opportunity to enjoy a one-of-a-kind Labor Day Weekend racing experience.

The 7th Annual Diamond Drag Boat Nationals visit "Lake Lucas" Sept. 1-3 for a key stop on the Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series. The new, all-inclusive VIP "Top Eliminator Club" is a new option to watch the event.

With prime viewing from a designated, shaded area near the starting line, fans will be able to use the three-day pass to see and feel the power of the 260-mile-per-hour Top Fuel Hydro boats fire off the line, along with the four other pro divisions and multiple sportsman classes.

Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson said the set-up will be similar to popular VIP areas at Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing facilities in Marble Falls, Texas, and Chandler, Arizona.

"We think it'll be a perfect way for our fans to enjoy the event and we're excited to offer it for the first time," Robinson said. "This not only will be a way to see the boats from a prime location, but also will offer comforts and amenities to make it a complete fan experience."

Space is limited to the first 100 people to reserve in advance by calling admissions director Nichole McMillan at (417) 282-5984 or via email at Nichole@lucasoilspeedway.com.

The three-day package is $179 and, in addition to admission and a seat in the shaded viewing area, it will include: A continental-style breakfast, lunch and light hors d'oeuvres each day; two non-alcohol drink tickets per day (soda or energy drink); two alcohol drink tickets per day (beer, wine or basic mixed drinks); unlimited free water; dedicated cash bar with hostess and a gift bag.

Groups of 10 or more, based on availability, can purchase discounted Top Eliminator Club tickets for $149 apiece with an Aug. 25 deadline.

"The Diamond Drag Boat Nationals always is one of our most-exciting weekends of the year, with the world's fastest boats putting on a great show," Robinson said. "If you've ever wanted to see the boats up-close in an ideal setting, this is a chance to do so. "

Qualifying runs are scheduled each day with action starting at 9 a.m. Final eliminations are set for 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 3.

In addition to the action on Lake Lucas, the Lucas Oil MLRA Series' Larry Phillips Memorial is set for Saturday night, Sept. 2 on the dirt track. Those with tickets to the Diamond Drag Boat Nationals on Saturday, including Top Eliminator Club members, will be admitted free. The Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mods also will be in action on the dirt.
