Scotty Lumbert set a new national record in the Top Fuel Hydro class on this pass. His E.T. for the 1000' just 3.58 seconds. This was shot last weekend in Phoenix at the Lucas Oil Drag Boat races season opener. This boat has 8000 hp.

The twin prop Top Fuel Hydro's hook up very strong. Here's a shot of the same boat from the starting line.

Thats crazy...I drag race cars and to even think of the work and science behind these boats boggles my mind. Great set of shots also!
