A “test and tune” for the Bracket Series is scheduled for April 7, with a cost of $30 per driver and $10 for crewmembers and spectators alike. Gate 8 will open at 10 a.m. and action begins and runs from noon to 5 p.m.
Following the Summit Racing “test and tune” Sunday, LOR gears up for the return of the popular Wild Wednesdays that begin April 10.
Gates open at 5 p.m. with racing set to begin at 5:30 p.m. For $20, anyone can bring their car or motorcycle to race in a legal and controlled environment, giving amateur dragsters the opportunity to showcase their racing skills. Spectators can watch for $5; children 12 and younger are admitted free.
“Wild Wednesday gives you a chance to take your car off the street, and race it on the dragstrip,” Emsweller said. “(It’s) a fun environment that provides anyone a chance to be a racer. It’s especially exciting early in the year to see if the drivers have made the correct adjustments over the winter to shave off time from the previous year.”
There’s never a lack of events at LOR and racing action continues now through the end of the season.
“The opening week is one of our favorite weeks of the year,” Emsweller said. “April is a busy month, which includes the NHRA Spring Spectacle of Speed April 26 through 28. The event features the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, which includes Top Alcohol Dragsters and Funny Cars.
“It’s great to know that we have wonderful events scheduled throughout the summer, showcased by the Visit Hendricks County Night Before the 500 May 25, and the 59th annual NHRA U.S. Nationals Aug. 28 through Sept. 2. Every weekend we have something going on at Lucas Oil Raceway and we’re ready for all the racing action.”
