Owner description: Lucas Oil Raceway is home to the most historic drag strip in the world, a fan-favorite short track paved oval, and a 2.5 mile road course. Each year, the US Nationals (currently the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals) comes to Lucas Oil Raceway over Labor Day weekend. This event is the largest drag race in the world which will see more than 100,000 guests and close to 1,000 competitors. Ticket prices vary by day and seating location. The US Nationals is truly a sensory overload when the Top Fuel Dragsters and Nitro Funny Cars reach speeds of over 320 MPH in only 1000 feet of track. Wear ear protection and sun screen since the cars are loud and the sun is hot! Throughout the rest of the year, the track features a amateur race night most Wednesdays where anyone can race their own car down the drag strip, called Wild Wednesday. The track will also feature the ARCA Racing Series, CRA Series, USAC, Mazda Road to Indy (Pro Mazda/USF2000), Summit ET Bracket Series Division 3 Finals, Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, NMCA (National Muscle Car Association), Hot Rod Drag week, and more! Visit our website for all event information.

I was there several times watching Drag Races. I also saw a young Lady there who Handled a Gas Turbine Driven Engine down the Strait away. It was great the Roar vibrated the Glass Windows of a near by Building. I worked for Allison Gas Turbine, in Maysville for a while when I was working for Allison Transmission.
