Low water levels on Lake Nasworthy causes Race Promoters to move date! Lucas Oil has just announced that the Showdown In San Angelo, originally slated for June 27-29, 2014, has been moved to the weekend of September 12-14, 2014.

San Angelo Chamber of Commerce spokesperson, Jenni Campbell, stated, "Due to the low lake level, we have no other choice but to reschedule the Showdown In San Angelo. We decided it was the best option to call the race this early so racers, spectators, sponsors and volunteers could plan appropriately for September's race."

The 2014 LODBRS Showdown In San Angelo event is one of the finest venues on the National Series schedule and certainly is one that you will not want to miss. Lucas Oil Productions will be on hand to film the event for national television and hundreds of race teams from across the nation will be in attendance, competing for points in classes ranging from Top Fuel Hydro to Personal Watercraft.

Mark your calendars now to witness one of the most exciting exhibitions of speed and beauty on Lake Nasworthy in San Angelo, Texas on September 12-14, 2014.
