The Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series is pleased to announce the return of 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!

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.

McCulloch Boulevard will be closed from Smoketree to Mulberry Avenues but there is plenty of free parking on Mesquite and Swanson Avenues.
