Lucas Oil Raceway is home to the most historic drag strip in the world, a fan-favorite short track paved oval, and a 2.5 mile road course. Each year, the US Nationals (currently the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals) comes to Lucas Oil Raceway over Labor Day weekend. This event is the largest drag race in the world which will see more than 100,000 guests and close to 1,000 competitors. Ticket prices vary by day and seating location. The US Nationals is truly a sensory overload when the Top Fuel Dragsters and Nitro Funny Cars reach speeds of over 320 MPH in only 1000 feet of track. Wear ear protection and sun screen since the cars are loud and the sun is hot! Throughout the rest of the year, the track features a amateur race night most Wednesdays where anyone can race their own car down the drag strip, called Wild Wednesday. The track will also feature the ARCA Racing Series, CRA Series, USAC, Mazda Road to Indy (Pro Mazda/USF2000), Summit ET Bracket Series Division 3 Finals, Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, NMCA (National Muscle Car Association), Hot Rod Drag week, and more! Visit our website for all event information.

This was my second time to Lucas oil raceway. It's a nice track. Facilities were clean. Just be prepared to walk a long ways, but that's pretty typical with any race track. You can bring coolers 14x14x14 which I recommend because waters are $4 each....More

Used to be such a fun place to watch a race. But now, no one goes there. Grandstands torn down on each end of the racetrack, which is a good thing, because no one was at the last race there. VERY disappointing.

I've spent a lot of time at this track. Went there as a boy and was there this year for the NHRA U.S. Nationals. They used to have USAC sprints, midgets and NASCAR but for some reason I guess they don't see the importance of...More

We went for the NHRA racing event. There is ample grass parking at a cost of ten dollars. You can sit in the parking lot and use a small grill; we didn't but we saw others doing it. The line to purchase tickets (about $70...More

Sorry I didn't see this earlier but the answer would've been the same. I don't know. I'd contact the track.

We sat in the grandstand general seating, top row west of start finish line, great seats but you do have to get there early to secure these seats. You will definitely need hearing protection. We wore the little ear plugs... More
