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.

Stock Eliminator
The index of 11.00-11.99 is the slowest index in the Sportsman classes which is stock eliminator. This race boat has the same class structure in engine, blowers, fuel, and hulls as Pro Eliminator, Top Eliminator, and Modified Eliminator. Slowest maybe misleading as this class goes down the track at speeds of 95 plus mph. Come on out and give it a try.
