I went to the Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series "Showdown in San Angelo" with a few buddies from work on June 25th and 26th. The studs in this series are the 8,000 Top Fuel drag boats that run the liquid quarter mile in under 5 seconds at over 250 mph. All the racing boats look and sound spectacular.....my hearing is still recovering after standing directly next to the headers of a revving drag boat V8. This was my first experience with drag boats, so it was a blast.
Here are some great pictures from the event courtesy of my photographer friend Vu Banh.
