In years past you were allowed a on plane start if you had surface drives. All the big cats were allowed rolling starts. Some rolled a little faster than others.

Jim Darr being chased. LOL

Yes correct I missed bob's last run. I seen all the other ones. VERY impressed.
I felt bad for Gino.. I knew he went out with more expectations. BUT that is boating... Spend 50k and a $4.00 part ruins the weekend.

David Scott has got that boat figured out.... Just watching the TV he looked like he was rolling!!!!


Can't say enough about the stream TV . That was awesome all weekend.

Congrats to everyone out there...!!!

when your old 32' Skater went 162mph at LOTO, it's was from one motor in neutral and one in forward....almost from a dead stop.

I was thinking about the same thing.

I would't say he ended it.....Maybe just steped it up a notch.
