PR: Dan Allen sets New World RecordAllen Racing debuted their Lucas Oil dragster’s new wrap in record-breaking style. Since November’s last race the car was torn down and rewrapped in time for the National Sand Drag Association’s ’08 season opener in Yuma, AZ this weekend. The first pass off the trailer Dan put down a 2.441 pass breaking the previous sand-drag Top Alcohol world record of 2.496 set in 2004. For the record to stand it would need to be backed up the following day at high noon. The additional heat of Saturday was no match for Lucas Oil’s protective lubricants and the dragster not only backed up the previous pass but beat it with a 2.411 for the record books.
The dominating weekend continued through qualifying, eliminations, and the semi-finals with all passes beating the previous world record. Even losing the blower belt in the finals was not enough to stop the Lucas Oil dragster from putting down another record breaking time of 2.429 and capturing the victory. It was a good feeling throughout the Allen Racing camp knowing the Lucas Oil dragster picked-up right where it left off the last pass of ’07; in the winners circle.
Allen Racing humbly thanks all its sponsors for make this record-breaking weekend a reality. Please continue to support Allen Racing and the NSDA by coming out to the next race in San Jacinto, CA on February 15-17, 2008.
