2017 NHRA Lucas Oil Division 7 Season Opener Qualifying from Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park

Chandler, ARIZ. (March 3, 2017) – NHRA’s Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Division 7 kicked off its 2017 racing season at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park with qualifying sessions on Friday.  Drag racers from across the United States made their way to Wild Horse Pass to take part in the action on the dragstrip.

Top Alcohol Dragster, T/A Funny Car, Top Sportsman, Super Stock and down will be running throughout the weekend on the dragstrip as NHRA’s Division 7 begins a new season of drag racing the the Western states.


The competition is already tough, but Super Gas drivers will have to compete with a NHRA Pro Champion this weekend.  Elite Motorsports’ Pro Stock driver Erica Enders is running a borrowed Super Gas roadster this weekend.  We’ll see if some of our locals can take her out of the ladder as the weekend of racing continues.

The track crew at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park had the surface of the dragstrip in race ready condition.  Friday’s qualifying session ran smoothly, with the only major issue being Disturbed Racing’s Funny Car’s chutes failing to deploy.  Chris Marshall ran the car out into the desert before coming to a safe stop.  He was uninjured in the incident.

Qualifying continues through Saturday afternoon.  Final elimination rounds will begin on Sunday morning.  Head on out to Wild Horse Pass Motorsports to take in NHRA’s Division 7 Drag Racing for yourself.
