NHRA DIV. 1 LODRS EVENT POSTPONED AT VIRGINIA MOTORSPORTS PARK

 

Mother nature got the best of the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series this past weekend at Virginia Motorsports Park and the 2017 NHRA Northeast Division opener.

With weather forecasted for Sunday, NHRA and track officials altered the schedule and were hoping to run all rounds of eliminations on Saturday and complete the event. However, the wet weather came early forcing officials to postpone the event which has been rescheduled for August 26, back at Virginia Motorsports Park. Qualifying was completed and all classes are closed to new entries except for the NHRA Jr. Drag Racing League classes that are running in conjunction with the event.

When racing resumes on August 26, competitors will get one time run, prior to the start of eliminations. Round one of Stock Eliminator was completed on Saturday prior to the rain putting a halt to the racing action. The track will be open on Friday, August 25, for a test and tune day.

Northeast division racers will head to Maple Grove Raceway, May 26-28, for their next NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event.
