Arizona Drag Boat Association (ADBA) Schedules Races on Firebird Lake Lucas Oil is proud to announce the addition of the Arizona Drag Boat Association (ADBA) to its growing list of sanctioning members. The Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series will now include four race events on the lake at Firebird International Raceway in Chandler, Arizona as co-sanctioned National and/or Divisional events with the ADBA in 2011 and beyond.
The Arizona Drag Boat Association will offer “grass roots” drag boat racers the opportunity to compete in closed course sanctioned races in the State of Arizona. The ADBA’s first two events, scheduled for March 11-13 and April 15-17, 2011 will be ADBA / LODBRS Divisional points events while the Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series season opener scheduled for May 27-29 and the World Finals on November 17-20 will be LODBRS National events as well as points races under the ADBA banner.
ADBA rescue personnel will be trained by LODBRS’ Jimmy Todd and Tech Director Henry Sarandria will train its Technical Inspectors. Rules and race programs which ADBA governs will be consistent with LODBRS rules, and members in good standing from other LODBRS organizations will also be welcomed to participate at its events. The ADBA’s initial slate of officers include Jeremy Denny, President; Bob Prigmore, Vice- President; Barbara Kunkle, Secretary and Scott Sayles, Treasurer, and will also be governed by a seven-member Board of Directors.
