Wheatland, Missouri (May 14, 2015) - LODBRS officials, along with Geoff Archer and Twisted Liquid Marine are excited to announce that the wait is finally over for the debut of the new Junior Drag Boat Racing League in association with the Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series. Construction had already been completed on a pair of Junior Drag Boats and were set to debut at the LODBRS season opening Colorado River Challenge in Parker Arizona during the weekend of April 10-12, 2015, but because only a limited amount of testing was able to be done beforehand, it was decided to postpone putting the boats on the water for exhibition until the research and development process had been completed to ensure that the boats are set up properly.

The Junior Drag Boats are now ready to roll and are slated to debut at the John Haas Memorial Classic in Wheatland, Missouri on Friday, June 12 and Saturday, June 13, 2015. The boats are also scheduled to run at the Showdown In San Angelo scheduled for the weekend of June 26-28 2015.

Modeled after the highly successful NHRA Junior Dragster Program, the LODBRS Junior Drag Boat Racing League is designed to create an entry class for future professional drag boat racers, providing young people with the competitive spirit of racing while instilling in them the value of good sportsmanship, self discipline and dedication to a racing program.

The program is available to young people between the ages of 10 and 16 years, and will be offered in two formats, either Driver or Ride Along. At minimum, JRDBRL drivers must have their own DOT helmet and a Coast Guard approved impact type life jacket and further requires that a registered.

LODBRS racer participates as a Ride Along. JRDBRL Ride Along participants are open to general spectating young persons who wish to ride along with a registered LODBRS racer. Lucas Oil officials will provide a helmet and life jacket to JRDBRL Ride Along participants if needed. Under both formats, all participants must register, complete a membership form, and both parents must sign a waiver. No fees are required for membership or registration.
