Default Whose Cat at Daytona Speedway?

Watching Fox and Daytona 500 testing, there is a 30-32 cat with Mountain Dew banners on the back. Anyone know the boat?

It is an Eliminator 28. They haven't been able to get past 70. Running out of water. Its hard to believe that with all the builders around there that they get a west coast boat

I think it came about because Eliminator uses "Daytona" as a line of boats.

It is a 28' Eliminator Daytona with 710 Illmor motors. They are running my props on it...they are 28p 5 blade maximus. The idea behind running such a small prop with that setup was to try and get the boat above 100 m.p.h. and bang the rev. limiters as fast as possible. D. Waltrip better not ding my props...lol

I'm here in Daytona for my job. It's a cool boat to. I don't think they'll let DW drive it.
