We’re looking forward to the upcoming season and another great year of Sportsman racing in the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series.”

The 22 regional events during the 2024 Lucas Oil Drag Racing will also feature the exciting 270-mph racing from the Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car classes.

The JEGS SPORTSnationals, which has been a staple of the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series circuit, will take place over four days of racing from July 10-13 at National Trail Raceway in the Columbus, Ohio, area. More than 600 competitors took part in the SPORTSnationals in 2023, with racing taking place in eight different categories. It’s annually one of the marquee events of the Sportsman season, and the historic race leads directly into the divisional and regional event on July 12-13 at National Trail Raceway to conclude an action-packed four days of racing.

Like the 2023 season, NHRA will also stream several Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series divisional races on either or the NHRA YouTube page for free during the 2024 campaign, including action from all seven NHRA divisions.

“Lucas Oil and the Lucas family have always been so dedicated to supporting our sport and this series, and the NHRA is proud to again partner with them for another tremendous year of Sportsman racing in 2024,” NHRA President Glen Cromwell said. “The series continues to enjoy exciting growth, and that’s a credit to all of our partners, race teams, and member tracks, and we’ve got an exciting 2024 schedule on tap for them.”
