Two Races To Be Held Annually at Wild Horse Motorsports Park
Lucas Oil is pleased and excited to announce the implementation of a five year agreement with the Sun Valley Marina Corporation to stage two drag boat races annually at the newly renamed Wild Horse Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona, formerly known as Firebird International Raceway.
The Sun Valley Marina Corporation has hired Copper Train, LLC. to manage and operate the property and to handle the drag boat racing venue. Dick Hahne, a former Vice President of Operations with Daytona International Speedway, has been hired as President of the track to oversee the facility for the Sun Valley Marina Corporation.
LODBRS Director of Operations, Mike Chastain stated, "We are very excited about the opportunity to continue racing at this premier drag boat racing facility in Chandler, Arizona. This will serve as a tremendous boost to the sport."

The second race will be the Lucas Oil World Finals scheduled for October 30-November 3. In 2014 and beyond, the first of the two drag boat races at Wild Horse Motorsports Park will be held in April.
