2013 NHRA Spring Spectacle of Speed Photo Gallery
Racing action from Saturday April 27, 2013 at Lucas Oil Raceway. Stock and Super Stock managed to get qualifying and one round of eliminations in before it started raining Saturday night and in to Sunday.
Rains ended up washing out Sunday’s (April 28) attempt at completing the NHRA Spring Spectacle of Speed, the season opener for the North Central Division’s NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis.
A total of 452 of the 575 entries are still in competition. Final elimination rounds have been rescheduled for Sunday, May 5. All spectator tickets for the event will be honored on May 5.
