GLENDORA, Calif. --

For the 16th season, the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series will compete at top flight NHRA Drag Racing facilities across the county for the 2017 season. The upcoming 2017 schedule will feature 45 divisional events with a minimum of six in each of the seven divisions. There will also be 26 regional events featuring the 260-mph Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car classes.

"The NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing series is the very best of sportsman racing, which highlights the foundation of the NHRA," said NHRA president Peter Clifford. "This series allows fans to enjoy drag racing competition at many levels, often showcasing future stars in classes where many pro racers began their careers. We're extremely thankful for everything the Lucas family does to support this series and are excited to see another great season of the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series in 2017."

New for the coming season is the return of two tracks to the series, Orlando Speed World Dragway and South Georgia Motorsports Park. Orlando Speed World Dragway will have the distinction of hosting the first NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event of the year on Feb. 25-26 and the 2017 season will conclude at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Nov. 2-5.

The season will also include two doubleheader weekends taking place at Heartland Park Topeka in Topeka, Kan., July 27-30 and Rocky Mountain Raceways in West Valley City, Utah, Sept. 21-24. The Topeka event will also include a regional event. Galot Motorsports Park will be the only eighth-mile event in the series when they hold their event on April 8-9.

The season will also feature two events during the course of the year at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis, The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Pacific Raceways and Woodburn Dragstrip.

Bandimere Speedway will change their regional event format to a Friday-Saturday, two-day event with eliminations on Saturday night. Several of the other regional events will run Top Alcohol eliminations on Saturday night as well.

"Lucas Oil is immensely proud to be part of the sportsman racers and the Lucas Oil Drag Racine Series," Morgan Lucas. "The sportsman competitors are the backbone of the NHRA and we are proud and honored to be part of the organization. We thank all the racers for their love, passion and all they do for the sport of NHRA Drag Racing. We look forward to the 2017 season and wish the racers the best of luck."

Bonus programs available to competitors in the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series include the $100,000 JEGS Allstars. Individual divisions will also have additional bonus programs available to racers.

In addition to Lucas, some prominent graduates of the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series who have gone on to successful careers in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series include Brandon Bernstein, Shawn Langdon, Courtney Force, Erica Enders, Brittany Force, Alexis DeJoria, and Jeg Coughlin.
