Name History Last Updated
Ron Braaksma

Ron is The Man. He was a key innovator for safety in the sport, even going so far as to put a roll cage in a boat. That idea led to the self-contained breakaway "Capsule" found in all modern boats in the fastest classes. His "Madness" top fuel hydros have been seen since the 1980s, and Ron has been seen in the boat as late as 2010 at the World Finals at Firebird.
