This is from another thread in the EVENTS section, Im going to try and make the NORTHERN route drive from I-70 when I get home in a week and post up some info:
" Wheatland, MO Dragboat race July 29, 30, 31
Just drove by the new Lucas facility at Wheatland and it is going to be something!
I took two routes in to get an idea of how folks from my part of the country (from Central Arkansas) might want to go. I initially went in on 65 to I-44. Went West on 44 to 13. North on 13 to hwy 54 at Collins, took 54 15 miles into Wheatland. It does look a bit shorter breaking off hwy 13 at Bolivar, but that whole road is 25 miles to Wheatland and two-lane with NO SHOULDER. This pic is for all you Toter-home and Dually types taking large haulers up with you...it's on Hwy 83. Also, you have to make a couple of immediate left and right turns downtown Bolivar.
It's a much better pull for those of you with large trailers to just go on up 13 a bit further to Collins and take 54 on in.
Here's a shot of the starting line...sorry the pic isn't so good...done with a phone camera.
Good luck to all that show up! Sure to be a good time!
Circle track racing Saturday night too...ON DIRT."
