WWT RACEWAY TO HOST DOUBLE-HEADER NHRA D2 LODRS


 

Now takes place prior to AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals, with double events in one weekend.

World Wide Technology Raceway officials announced a major participant-event change for its 2020 drag racing schedule. The track’s popular NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series regional event, originally scheduled for October, will move to the weekend of September 26-27 following the addition of a Lucas Oil Series divisional event on September 24-25.

“The many changes taking place with venues throughout the country presented this unique opportunity,” said Chris Blair, World Wide Technology Raceway’s Executive Vice President and General Manager. “One of the biggest expenses faced by the sportsman racer is the cost of getting to and from the track. This schedule adjustment will provide racers with the opportunity to make one haul to the St. Louis area, compete in two Lucas Oil Series events and remain on-site for the following weekend’s AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals.”

The change in schedule also has the popular Import Face-Off Series moving to Sunday, October 11, and adjusts the dates for some of the remaining Midnight Madness street-legal drag racing events. The schedule also reflects a few race dates listed as TBA, and other events that have contracts which have not yet been finalized.

“As we move later into the season, some of the traveling series, participant-only races and non-racing related events are still in the process of shoring up sponsorships,” Blair explained. “As a result, we expect to host some events that were not on our original schedule.”
