The Spectaculars of Drag Boat Racing
(These DVD'S have been discounted to only $19.95 - $39.95)
Each 2 -hour tape shows the best of that year's racing thrills. All the record setting runs, some of the closest side by side action, pit scenes of crews working on their boats, crashes with slow motion, interviews with owners and drivers, interviews with drivers after crashes, shots from the starting dock showing the drivers view and the remains of some boats after a crash. Our nostalgia tapes from the 80's show these heroes pilot their plastic fantastics at 200 plus MPH in open cockpit boats (no capsules) and the only thing that kept the men in their machine was their shear determination and strength to hang on to the wheel and BE THE 1ST THROUGH THE LIGHTS. The late 80's and into the 90's brought the innovation of the roll cages and on to the fully enclosed capsules. The drivers were fully harnessed in the capsule and had oxygen bottles for breathing. These videos are fully entertaining and packed with full of action.
Our very 1st Spectacular features super heroes like Eddie Hill who drove the “Texan” and raced against legends like the Tuttle brothers who drove “The Nitro Bandit” and “The Nitro Express” and the late Bill Todd in “Billy The Kid”. The late Cecil Florence in the “Coors light Special” The late Jim Benson in “Hot Blooded” and those who retired from drag boat racing like “Daddy’s Toy” “Morgan’s Flying Machine” “The Nighthawk” “Red Baron” “The Sting” “Smoke On The Water” and more.
Mrs. English Leather Beauty Contest is one you won’t want to miss on this video. Along with that is dynamic hair lifting crashes that will curl your toes. Fire blasts as engines burn, blowers blowing up and near miss crashes are part of the thrills in this video. Races in Oklahoma, St. Louis, Waco and many other race tracks are sure to whet your whistle and ask for more. This is the tape that shows you the last ride in drag boats which ended in a terrifying crash for Eddie Hill “THE TEXAN” ..Other exciting racing action from Ofixco Special, Turbulance, Crusader Rabbit, Going Places, Final Effort, Double Vision and more like Alacran Scorpion who’s throttle sticks and he blazes a trail through the water trying to direct his boat to not crash into (2) campers at the end of the track. He is successful in that he drives the boat to go between the campers and just before impact, he jumps out of his boat and has his leg almost cut in half. The hospital is able to save his leg and he is still a lover of the sport.

The year of 86 was a particularly sad year in the sport of drag boat racing. We dedicated this tape to (7) drivers who lost their lives doing what they loved best “Drag Boat Racing”. Those racers were (Milt Champion-Mid Life Crisis), (Dave Nolte-Liberty), (Bill Todd-Billy The Kid), (Denny Vashell-Flat Out Of Sight), (Huey Jones-Ambush), (John Young-Strange Behavior) and (Bill Hartman- Ofixco Special). This tape has footage of great racing on the above mentioned drivers. Along with that are other awesome crashes, trophy dashes, engines blowing up and more.
This year was the start of mandatory roll cages for Top Fuel Hydros where the drivers were strapped in their boats. Some racers started with open roll cages and others like Spirit Of America had closed capsules. See the great run between father & son racing team, Ray & Tim Capaldi.
