During the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series there will be 24 regional events featuring the 250-mph Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car classes. There will be a minimum of six events in each of the seven NHRA divisions.

Regional, divisional and national championship points and a purse of more than $500,000 in seven categories will be up for grabs during the course of the racing season. The NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series also includes three sportsman-focused national events: the JEGS NHRA Cajun SPORTSnationals; the JEGS NHRA Pacific SPORTSnationals; and the JEGS NHRA Northern SPORTSnationals.

Adding to the excitement of 10 NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series events across the country will be the addition of the newly created NHRA Screamin’ Eagle Championship Motorcycle Series. Top Fuel, Pro Gas, Draggin’ Bagger, V-Rod, and Hot Street will all compete during the course of the weekend with a total purse of $152,800 among the five classes.

“The core of NHRA drag racing is the grassroots racers that compete in the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series,” said Forrest Lucas, owner and CEO of Lucas Oil Products. “It’s important for the long-term health of drag racing to support these talented drivers and teams, which is one of the main reasons we continue to back this series. Many of these racers also benefit from our products, which further strengthens the bond between Lucas Oil and the competitors out there giving it their all every weekend.”

Bonus programs available to competitors in the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series include the $100,000 JEGS Allstars, and the NHRA Perfectly Strange Performance Award, in which a total of $45,000 is up for grabs throughout. Individual divisions may also have additional bonus programs available to racers.
Some prominent graduates of the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series who have gone on to successful careers in the NHRA Full Throttle Series include Brandon Bernstein, Morgan Lucas, Shawn Langdon, Courtney Force, Alexis DeJoria, and Jeg Coughlin.
