“Sportsman racing is such an important part of NHRA Drag Racing, and we’re pleased to offer our support for such a great series during the 2023 season,” said Morgan Lucas, president of Lucas Oil. “It’s important for us to see this series continue to thrive and grow and continue to feature all the amazing racers and teams who put in so much work for their success. Next year will be another terrific season in the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series and we’re excited to be part of it.”

The JEGS SPORTSnationals, which has been a staple on the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series circuit, will again take place at National Trail Raceway on July 12-13 as part of a huge weekend at the Columbus, Ohio-area facility. More than 600 drivers competed at the SPORTSnationals across high-level racing in eight different categories in 2022, making it one of the marquee events of the sportsman season. With another huge car count expected for 2023, the popular event leads directly into the divisional and regional race on July 14-16 at National Trail Raceway to conclude a big weekend of racing action.

The 25 regional events during the 2023 Lucas Oil Drag Racing will also feature the exciting 270-mph racing from the Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car classes.

Like the 2022 season, NHRA will also stream several Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series divisional races on either NHRA.tv or the NHRA YouTube page for free during the 2023 campaign, including action from all seven NHRA divisions.

“Lucas Oil and the Lucas family have been so instrumental in supporting this tremendous series for so many years and we look forward to another year of our partnership, as well as another great season of racing,” NHRA President Glen Cromwell said. “We’ve put together an exciting 2023 schedule, and it is a huge thrill to see all of the outstanding drivers competing at such a high level at so many of our member tracks across the country.”
