Double Header Kicks off the Start of the 2013 NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Pacific Division Season

2013 NHRA Lucas Oil Division 7 Double Header from Firebird Raceway

Chandler, Arizona (February 28, 2013) — On the heels of the Arizona Nationals, the NHRA Lucas Oil Division 7 Double Header is running at Firebird International Raceway this weekend.  With over 600 cars in the pits for Thursday’s qualifying sessions, there’s sure to be some awesome drag racing action on Friday.  After the final elimination round is run on Friday, it all starts over again Saturday morning and continues through Sunday evening. 

Many of these die hard drag racers have been at the track for more than a week as they also competed in the NHRA Arizona Nationals last weekend.  Ninety of our very own Arizonans competed in the Arizona Nationals last weekend and they’re right back at the track this weekend for another adrenaline fix.  Others have come from across the country to compete in this event.

During the Arizona Nationals last week Tucson’s Chuck Hawk won a Wally in Top Dragster, Wickenburgs Harry Doolittle won the Wally in Super Stock, and Phoenix’s Kevin Kleinweber won the Wally in Super Street.

The Double Header is just one of 44 races that will be held across the country that racers can compete for Regional, Divisional and National championships.

With wheel standing dragsters and 6 second door slammers running down the quarter mile, there’s something for everyone at Firebird Raceway this weekend.

Classes of cars and bikes running this weekend are Super Street, Stock Eliminator, Super Comp, Super Stock, Super Gas, Top Dragster, Competition Eliminator, and Top Sportsman.  Top Alcohol Dragsters and Funny Cars will be on the track Saturday and Sunday.

Gates open at 8:00 AM each day.  General Admission is $30.00.
