Showdown in San Angelo rapidly approaching
The Annual Showdown in San Angelo was on shaky ground for a while due to low water levels, but with recent rains the lake is full and ready for some awesome drag boat racing action. I have attended this event a couple of times, and if you want go to a race that is a spectators dream.....this is it. The track is setup so that viewing is available on both sides of the track, similar to Chowchilla. The promotion team does an outstanding job. For those who have been to Red Bluff, this is a very similar race. The entire town of San Angelo gets behind this event. You don't want to miss it. The promoter has locked up blocks of rooms at several hotels. Get them quick though, as these blocks will drop soon. La Quinta 325-949-0515, Days Inn 325-648-6594, and Travel Lodge 325-653-6966.
2001 NJBA Spring Madness Photo Gallery repaired
Well, in our ongoing effort to fix what is broken, we have just fixed all of the images from the 2001 NJBA Spring Madness race.
Ever seen "Madness" with a full wing, not the canard wings like Ron always had on the boat? I am talking a full wing. It looks bad ass, but I think this was the only event that it was on the "Madness" machine. Some very cool pictures from my early days as a photographer.Go check them out!
2000 IHBA Lakefest Photo Gallery all repaired
In an effort to fix all of the galleries, so racers that haven't raced in a few years can see images we shot long ago, we are repairing some of our old galleries. Today I repaired the 2000 IHBA Lakefest gallery. Didn't realize how many cool shots were in there. Racers that have passed on, and racers that are doing other things now. Nice to see images of them.
Gallery includes Tim Stokes wild crash in his Widowmaker TAH, and "Rocket" Ron Braaksma doing his impression of wheelie Wednesday.
Help support the effort, and purchase a print or two. We would sure appreciate the business. Go and check them out.

Scotty Lumbert Takes The Public Nuisance Fueler For The Wildest Ride Ever
After launching the Public Nuisance Top Fuel Hydro over the burn and into an empty parking lot at the previous Firebird race, Scotty Lumbert took an even wilder ride as his steering lets go and tumbles the boat at over 220 mph, launching the capsule 30-40 feet in the air, striking the island, and landing on the other side in about 12 inches of water. Scotty suffered a leg injury, and some back issues, but returned to racing less than a year later.
