A look at the 2014 venue of Lake Havasu City for the Lucas Oil Drag Boat Races

Anderson Toyota Thunder on the River, Lucas Oil Drag Boat Races

The Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series is pleased to announce the return of Anderson Toyota Thunder on the River to Lake Havasu City, and once again, the competition promises to be fierce! This event will bring the best race teams in the country to Lake Havasu City to battle it out. Lake Havasu is the perfect venue for professional drag boat racing with near constant water elevation and temperatures. It is anticipated there will be some of the fastest runs ever, especially in the Top Fuel Hydro category where speeds have already surpassed the 260 mile per hour mark in as little as 3.3-seconds on a 1,000-foot race course!

FRIDAY NIGHT FANFEST:  October 2 @ 6pm-9pm
Head over to the Downtown Havasu District (Main Street McCulloch Boulevard) for a meet-and-greet with the drivers and race teams. See these drag boats up close and personal. Hear the motors run and smell the top fuel burn. Boats will be on display from Smoketree Ave. to Mulberry Ave. Beer garden and vendors on-site. McCulloch Boulevard will be closed from Smoketree to Mulberry Avenues but there is plenty of free parking on Mesquite and Swanson Avenues.

For Saturday and Sunday races, the spectator area will be located in Lake Havasu City's Rotary Community Park, a 40-acre beach/park centrally located and easily accessible from Arizona's State Highway 95. Recognized as a local hot spot, the park is located on the shores of Lake Havasu and offers a variety of amenities that are sure to make for a festive and exciting spring happening and a fun weekend for families and race enthusiasts of all ages. Vendors, beer garden, and other activities and displays will also be on-hand. Beach chairs and towels permitted. No coolers allowed inside of Rotary Park.
