Indy NHRA LODRS rainout schedule announced
The NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, which has been twice rained out at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis, will be completed with selected eliminator classes run individually at upcoming North Central Division events.
The completion of eliminations for Super Stock and Stock eliminators from the rained out Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis originally announced to be completed at the NHRA SportsNATIONAL OPEN over Memorial Day weekend is being moved to Friday, July 19, as part of the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event at National Trail Raceway in Columbus, Ohio.
“Based on racer feedback we believe that moving the Super Stock and Stock eliminations from Indy to another NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event will be more beneficial to a larger majority of racers in reducing additional travel for making up the event,” stated Jay Hullinger, NHRA North Central Division Director.
The balance of eliminations for the various classes will be contested in conjunction with other Division events in an effort to save some travel and to provide dual race opportunities. Super Comp, Super Gas and Super Street will complete their eliminations this weekend at Summit Motorsports Park while Top Dragster, Top Sportsman and Comp will run eliminations in conjunction with the Lucas Oil event at Route 66 Raceway on June 7.
JEGS Allstar points for Super Stock and Stock from the Indy event will not be counted for 2013 or 2014. The same is true for JEGS Allstars points for Comp, Top Dragster and Top Sportsman.
The North Central Division’s 2013 JEGS Allstars team will be decided at Norwalk, Ohio the weekend of May 17-19.
