EVENT DATE CHANGE
The Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event that was scheduled this weekend at Thunder Valley Raceway Park in Noble, Okla., has been rescheduled for October 26-28, 2018. With the amount of rain that the facility has received and is forecast to receive over the event weekend it does not look favorable to keep the event as scheduled. The daily schedule will remain the same as below.

I saw this yesterday.
It's too bad that Division 3 and Division 4 couldn't get together and run a DOUBLE at St. Louis next week.
Some (not me) were planning on going to Las Vegas for the National event that weekend.
I bet it rains or is too cold on those dates in Oklahoma.
That would probably be enough to make me postpone this weekend's winterization project!
Have you seen the forecast for St. Louis next weekend? Not any warmer.
70 on Friday
68 on Saturday
69 on Sunday

I don’t like to say “never” but I will never go back to Noble.
Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right. Here I am.......
I don't like to say "never" either,but I was there in 2003 and have "never" been back.
I went to Noble in 2015. It was raining as we pulled into the track on Friday morning and we got a late start, but otherwise it was all great!
I've heard horror stories from other years...
C'mon Vern...It'll be OK...next year. At least they are trying to improve things.
I'm out for this year, that job thing. But Maybe NEXT year?
BTW, I'm on the right.
It's a dangerous time in America. The communists are inside the gates.
Our survival is not guaranteed.
Check again... 59 for a high Friday and Saturday. Sunday isn’t even used for racing unless needed.
I guess it depends on what weather site you look at.Accuweather still says 69 on Saturday.
I like to use Weatherunderground and they say 59.
Either way it should be fine for next week.The week after at Noble is still too far away to even guess at this point.
Well,this should be an interesting weekend. A high of 57 tomorrow with a chance of rain.A nice day Saturday with a ton of wind.
Too cold to start at 8am,and too cold to run until midnight.
Sunday is no racing unless needed.
High of 53 on Sunday.
It will be very fast,but could be a little tricky if you have a fast car.
I guess it is good only one race is planned.
The current forecast for Noble OK next week. The big issue will be how much rain they get leading up to the weekend and the condition of the pits..
NE 8 mph 79%
SSE 9 mph 77%
NW 13 mph 72%
NNW 12 mph 64%
