Wheatland, Missouri - August 27th, 2013 - The Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series thunders into the Lucas Oil Speedway this Labor Day Weekend, August 30th-September 1st for the 3rd Annual Diamond Drag Boat Nationals on Lake Lucas. "The feedback and the response for this race has been tremendous, I encourage fans to get their tickets in advance and get here early each day." commented track General Manager Dan Robinson. Lucas Oil Speedway is located at the intersection of Highways 83 and 54 in Wheatland, Missouri just 60 miles north of Springfield, less than 2 hours south of Kansas City, and just 40 minutes west of Lake of the Ozarks.

Robinson continued "This is the one we've been looking forward to all summer long. Where else in the country can you go watch 250 mph Drag Boats during the day and 800hp Dirt Late Models and Modifieds in the evening for one affordable ticket price?"

The 3-day festival of speed, fun and entertainment kicks off on Friday August 30th with a Open Competitor Test & Tune on the Lake from 10am-4pm. "The Friday tickets are just $10 so if you have never been to a drag boat race and are curious as to what drag boats are all about, Friday is a great day to check them out at a very affordable price." commented Robinson. Spectator gates will open at 8am on Friday.

The action on Saturday, August 31st begins at 9am with a full day of Drag Boat Qualifying, including the mind numbing Top Fuel Hydros, racing down the lake at speeds in excess of 250 MPH! Spectator gates will open at 8am. The Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series will wrap up qualifying just in time for fans make their way over to the Lucas Oil Speedway Dirt Track for the Lucas Oil MLRA Dirt Late Model Fall Shootout.

Tony Jackson Jr. leads the MLRA contingent into battle as the Lebanon, Missouri driver holds a 51 point lead over Crane, Missouri's Will Vaught. Fresh off his $40,000 to win triumph in last weekend's Topless 100, Springfield, Missouri veteran Terry Phillips is expected to be action as he works to close the gap on Jackson and Vaught. "The Undertaker" Jesse Stovall stalks the leaders in fourth in the season long points standings while Multi-time MLRA Champion John Anderson out of Omaha, Nebraska rounds out the Top-5.
