2014 is on!
The 2014 Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series kicked off yesterday at Wild Horse Pass Raceway in Chandler Arizona. The weather was beautiful, a few clouds in the skies, warm temperatures and the smell of nitro in the air. Test and tune was excellent. Very few boats got stuck on the course, and the action was nonstop for the entire day. Lucas Oil Speed Sport made its long awaited debut and laid down a pretty nice pass for a shakedown pass. The boat was a little squirly, but it looked good. Toxic Rocket made a hit at the track. Only a half-track but it wasn't bad at all. The MavTV Spirit of Texas made an exciting half-track pass as well. I think the biggest surprise of this event is the resurgence of the TAH category. 5 boats are in attendance, the most we have had in a few years. Bob Pizza, Mike Frye, and (not sure of the first name) Mike Groth all made attempts down the track.
Unfortunately, wind is predicted for the next couple of days, but only in the afternoon, so lets pray to the wind gods to keep it down til 4:00pm.
Several racers hit perfect .00's on their dial ins. The blown jet "Cherry Bomb" machine ran consistent 6.02, 6.01, and 6.00 in the Quick Eliminator category.
We will give you some updates tonight after todays events.

The Whiskey River II Top Fuel Hydro team is heading to Phoenix this next week to compete for the Top Fuel trophy at the season opener at Wild Horse Pass Raceway. Let's give this team a little extra help by purchasing one of their bad-ass t-shirts, long-sleeve shirts, or sweatshirts before they head out! Their shirts are now available in black! These shirts feature some of the best artwork you can get from Gardner Designs.
Make sure you order by Wednesday the 9th before the rig leaves for Phoenix! They go fast at the track! Message them on Facebook or email at whiskeyrivertopfuelhydro5[at]gmail[dot]com to order!

What A Tomato - TAH #923 - World Finals 2011
Bob Pizza takes home his first World Finals win but loses the prop shaft at 1000 feet. Luckily for Bob the boat didn't crash even though he had no steering. What in the slo-mo when the shaft comes out it folds the rudder back. Bob was just along for the ride at that point.
