2023 Schedule


Lucky Dog Racing League/Powered by Hankook Competition 
celebrates Season 9 with a rocketing Dawg Nation of 5,000+ members and the return of the regional PacificNW & Southern Endurance Cup mini-championships PLUS a robust schedule at fan favorite venues and a new track or two. We're also pleased to announce that there are no major rule changes (e.g., car model year remains 2006 or older); just minor tweaks to existing guidelines (i.e., smart dawgs were getting a little clever within the existing ruleset). And we just signed another 3-year contact with Hankook Competition, providing teams with great pricing & access to the best tire in this level of endurance racing.... plus $3,000 in free tires awarded each race weekend!
