An update for those that do not have the PA Messaging Discord app. The paving crew has arrived and resources are rolling in to make the north lot accessible, in and out. We thank you for your patience, as moving this amount of equipment and material takes time to mobilize.

Comp Eliminator will run first round at 11:30am, followed by Alcohol at 12:30pm and then Sportsman Motorcycles. We will continue to provide updates on the remaining classes as soon as they are available.

Thanks!

06/14/2024

ATTENTION LODRS RACERS:

Due to the very heavy rain and storms last night, we are delaying the start time of today’s eliminations. Travel in the north lot is almost impossible at the moment and it needs time to dry out. At this time, we advise no travel in or out of the north parking lot.

We continue to work on and monitor the situation and provide additional updates as soon as they are available. Thank you for your patience and we apologize for the delay.

Here the run schedule for Friday. Please note the later start time.

Also, win lights have been installed past the finish line this evening. Look for the green LEDs on the wall tomorrow during eliminations.

06/13/2024

We've been getting questions about the West Central Bonus Entry that you can purchase in addition to your LODRS entry fee. Here is the scoop.

Anyone that purchases the $50 Bonus Race Entry is entered in a "Last Racer Standing" contest that runs in conjunction with LODRS eliminations. In each category, the racer that entered the Bonus Race and lasts the most rounds, is the winner and receives 70% of the collected purse. The remaining 30% is given to 2nd place.

These payout are made the week following the event and checks will be mailed.

I wanted to personally thank everyone that arrived at Flying H Dragstrip today for their patience. An unexpected issue arose this morning that required another layer of asphalt be added to the new parking area and the crew has been working non-stop since 7am this morning to get it ready for us. We are remarking the spots and will moving rigs in to that area as soon as possible.

In addition, the track crew is about to begin reprepping the grass parking area, giving it a fresh cut and flattening the roads. Mother Nature sprinkled in just enough rain last week to get the grass up another 4” and keep the roller out of the field, but that will be remedied this evening.

As a favor, I hope everyone will keep in mind that this is the first event of this size for a brand new facility that sprang from a soybean field 13 months ago. NHRA is excited to be a part of this new venture, and we hope you are as well. Kindness, patience and a smile will go a long way. The staff is working as hard as they can to make your time at Flying H as amazing as possible.

Let’s not only show support for this facility, but all of our D5 member tracks and dragstrips across the country who make sure we have a place to do what we love.

Safe travels to all and I’m looking forward to a great weekend at the Lucas Oil Drag Series!

🚨🚨🚨🚨Racers Arriving Monday🚨🚨🚨🚨

The paving of the second pit parking area at Flying H ran into an unforeseen complication this morning, and another layer of asphalt was required. That process was started at 7am and is currently being done as quickly as possible.

Unfortunately, we may not be able to use that lot until later this evening and tomorrow, so we are currently stacking all racers except for Alcohol and Comp (parking for these classes is on-going and not affected).

We apologize for the inconvenience and will be working to get everyone parked as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience and understanding with the brand new facility.
