I ran STVs , Allys and Hydrostreams for years too. Only had a couple crashes and they weren't that severe (other than the damage to the boats). But, after witnessing many crashes like this, I figured it was time to move on to another hobby.

Another horrendous crash photo.

Get well Joe and when you are feeling better this picture will be a keeper.

I saw this video on Fox News this morning. It brought back memories as we used to drag race outboards as well. We used to spend a lot of money on Merc 2.5 powerheads, they don't live too long at 10,500 rpm's. But, we did win Stock Eliminator in Augusta, GA in our 20' Allison one year and set a speed record of 110.766 in Adel, GA in our 18' Quarter Master tunnel boat in the ODBA Modified Production class.

looks like his chute is about to deploy. you can see the staic line hooked to the motor is tight..Nasty chine.

My dad and I are going to take out the flatbottom in a couple weeks to a closed circut lake. This type of posting will make me think before I try someting over my head..Thanks

Hmm,
I don't know what kind of tunnel that is, but it looks good even upside down. Looks like a modified Mirage 18' RR.
I hope he's OK.
I used to run the drags too. Great sport, but expensive and dangerous. I've lost 2 friends since I quit ...........
Regards,
Steve
