About the series
There is only one word for it... insanity! How else can you describe a form of racing in which nitro methane Top Fuel machines vaporize the liquid ¼ mile in just 4.7 seconds at over 250 mph? For racing fans around the country, nothing satisfies their urge for speed and raw horsepower like the Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series. This now united sport allows more than 900 teams to run for one national championship, each national event spotlights several pro classes highlighted by the Top Fuel Hydro class. It’s all about 8,000 horsepower nestled in sleek composite vessels, a form of motorsport that’s as visceral as it is captivating.

Promod
Otherwise known as, "Pro Mod". This has got to be one of the most competitive classes in the drag boat series. Running a quicker elapsed time in this class is not what a driver wants to do, 7.000-7.999 seconds, with emphasis on 7.000 is the goal. This watercraft runs with the same engine specs as, Top Alcohol Hydro and Top Alcohol Fuel only without a limited on cubic inches, nitrous oxide is not allowed in professional classes with exception of Pro Modified. A hydro style hull and v-drive make this a crowd favorite on the liquid quarter mile.
