The Lucas Oil Drag Boat series invaded Lake Havasu, Arizona last weekend to put on a demonstration of just how fast is done, welcome to the insane world of drag boat racing. The Thunder on the River weekend sees four classes of drag boats battle it out over the 1,000 foot course, but it’s the Top Fuel Hydro drag boats that continually blow everyone away.
Presented for your viewing pleasure is the spectacular video of the Top Fuel drag boat Problem Child in action, qualifying for the big finale at 262mph. As her twin counter rotating propellers bite and spin up to 20,000rpm she blasts out of the water and off the line, heaving immense plumes of the wet stuff high into the air behind her. Also included is the Wreck Wednesday playlist, with high speed fails galore. Sit back, relax and enjoy the high octane fun that is hydro drag boat racing.
