Lucas Oil continues its commitment to NHRA Sportsman racing as the sponsor of the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series. “Having come through the Sportsman ranks myself, I know how important it is to have the support you need to compete,” said Morgan Lucas of Lucas Oil Products. “These are our people, these are our customers. The Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series is the core of our sport. I know I speak for everyone at Lucas Oil when I say that we’re honored to continue title sponsorship of this series.” New England Dragway General Manager Joe Lombardo is equally excited about the announcement. “We are thrilled to be part of this exciting series. This is a marquee event dedicated to the backbone of NHRA drag racing. It’s their chance to shine in front of the fans in an event dedicated solely to sportsman competition.”
Since it began hosting the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series New England Dragway has given sportsman racers an opportunity to shine in front of thousands of eager race fans by incorporating the annual Night of Fire presented by the New England Ford Dealers and AAA Northern New England into the weekend. This Saturday night event has grown into one of the most popular events on the schedule featuring Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car. Lombardo said, “We’ve seen intense racing unfold during our annual Night of Fire. Racers look at our event as a pivotal stop in their quest for a NHRA Division 1 championship. Racers and fans alike know the road to championship dreams runs through Epping.” Some of the sport’s top drivers embarked upon their professional Mello Yello drag racing careers during the Lucas Oil Series including Brandon Bernstein, Morgan Lucas, Shawn Langdon, Courtney Force, Alexis DeJoria, and Jeg Coughlin.
The 2015 event is scheduled for July 17 – 19, with the Night of Fire taking place on July 18. It will feature the final rounds of Top Alcohol Dragster and Funny Car competition along with jets, wheelstanders and conclude with a stunning fireworks show. Tickets will be on sale later this year.
The NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series returns for a 14th season with premier events taking place across the country in all seven NHRA divisions it was announced today by NHRA officials. The 2015 schedule will feature 45 divisional events with a minimum of six in each of the seven divisions. There will also be 25 regional events featuring the 260-mph Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car classes.

That’s a wrap on the 2014 racing season! What a great year it was! From NHRA Mellow Yellow Racing Series to Friday Night King of the Hill races we saw some great racing action.We would like to thank spectators and racers alike for making this year so awesome. We appreciate you spending your hard earned entertainment dollars with us.
Some hard fought battles in our VP Race Fuels ET Series came right down to the wire to determine this year’s champions. Next year’s competition is setting up to be even tougher with some very good racers moving up from the ranks of Jr Dragster racing to full size cars. Speaking of Jr Dragsters, with the new age limits in place for Jr Dragster racing we look forward to seeing some new faces next year. The new age limits consist of 5 yr. olds being allowed practice single runs and 6 & 7 yr. olds are allowed to compete. NHRA’s new youth racing program has raised the eyebrows of many looking forward to getting an early start on their racing career. Full details and rules are available at: http://www.nhraracer.com/images/NHRAYouthRacing2014.pdf . New England Dragway is looking into putting a class together for these racers based on interest and participation.

if 30 cars show up, cost will be about $20+180=200 per car
This is a pay by check ONLY! Written to NHRA
I have sent invites to a lot of people that I know don't need a chassis cert
I am just hoping that you may know someone that drag races and may need this done so spread the word around
and you may invite anyone that you wish to help spread the word out basically if you have or know someone that
has a car going 9.99 or faster and has a cage they may need a cert done!
This year’s Buddy Scurto King of the Hill Memorial Race was a fitting tribute to the man who truly loved the sport of drag racing. In the electronics category Scott Menard powered his way through the field to set up one side of the final pairing, while Don Pires, Jr., emerged as the top gun in the non-electronics class. During the runoff Menard overcame a hole shot deficit to run on his number for the win over Pires.

To find the future stars of both the NHRA and New England Dragway, there is no need to look any further than the Junior Dragster ranks, where each young driver learns the basics of drag racing as well as the tricks to turn on the win lights. Over the weekend of August 8-10, 2014 NHRA Division 1 held the Junior Dragster Divisional race that saw hundreds of Junior Dragster racers face off for the top spot in each age group, as well as the Race of Champions, and Spirit award.
