• 2017 Augusta Southern Nationals • July 21 -23



The Augusta Southern Nationals Drag Boat Race has been notified by the sanctioning body (Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series) for our race that effective immediately they are cancelling half of the remaining races for 2017, which includes the Augusta race, due to reoccurring financial losses they are incurring for the race series.

This cancellation by corporate office of Lucas Oil means the 31st Annual Augusta Southern Nationals scheduled for next week on July 21st-23rd is cancelled.

Race Chairman, Dayton Sherrouse, stated that this is extremely devastating news for everyone concerned with this annual event particularly with the short notice involved. He assured those that had purchased tickets in advance of the race that they will be refunded.

Without the sanctioning body and the tasks they perform for the race such as course setup, timing system, rescue boats, driver registration, technical inspection, safety personnel, insurance and scheduling of general race activities the, race cannot be held.

As far as the future of the race in Augusta the Augusta Southern Nationals will continue to monitor the situation with Lucas and any other sanctioning bodies.

Additional information will be posted on our website at www.augustasouthernnationals.org
