NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Returns To Route 66

INDIANAPOLIS — For the first time since 2019, there will be drag racing at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Ill., as the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series returns to the track for this weekend’s Division 3 race. Longtime NHRA announcer Alan Reinhart is set to call the action this weekend from Route 66 Raceway. “I’m really looking forward to returning to Route 66 Raceway this weekend for the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event,” Reinhart said. Beginning last year, Tharpe and his team looked into hosting a divisional race at Route 66 Raceway, which first opened in 1998 and played host to NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series events for more than 20 years.
