Top Alcohol Hydro (IHBA) Class

The Top Alcohol Hydro runs racing methanol, street named “alco­hol” for fuel. They resemble Top Fuel Hydros but are just a few feet shorter and are half the weight. Most Alcohol Hydros weigh about 2500 pounds and make over 3000 horsepower. With two speed trans­missions, operated by the driver, just one propeller pushes these light weight boats over 230 mph, with ETs in the low 5 second range.

Top Fuel Hydro (IHBA) Class

Top Fuel Hydros mix nitro methane for fuel. Sometimes confused with nitrous oxide, thereʼs no comparison. Nitro Fuel compressed in a specially designed drag racing engine can make 7000 horse pow­er! Top Fuelers can cover the quarter mile in 4.5 seconds at speeds exceeding 250 mph...with half-track ETs of 2.8 seconds and speeds over 200 mph within just 660 feet! Most Top Fuel Hydros weigh close to 4000 pounds and use two propellers to apply 7000 horse power to the water. Top Fuel Hydros are the quickest and fastest of the drag boat family.

River Racer (IHBA) Class

River Racers dial-in their own times, and are allowed to change their dial-in times each round. The slower of the two boats leaves the start line first; the quicker boat leaves second. The object is to run close to your dial-in without going under your dial-in. Running un­der your dial-in would be called a break-out. If both boats break-out, itʼs called a double break-out, and the boat breaking out the least amount wins.

Stock Eliminator (IHBA) Class

Stock Eliminators need to run 11.00 seconds to make to happen. Donʼt let the name “stock” fool you, though. Most in-board Stock Eliminators make around five to six hundred horsepower. Thatʼs five times faster than most performance cars today!

Modified Eliminator (IHBA) Class

Mod Eliminators have a fixed dial-in of 10.00 seconds. Outboards, V bottoms, Outboard Tunnels, Hydroplanes, Flat Bottoms and Jet boats full this very competitive class. To run a ten second pass takes a huge outboard set for full race. In boards run big Chevys, Fords, Chryslers, multiple carburetors, fuel injection and nitrous oxide is used, making the horse power you need.

Top Eliminator (IHBA) Class

Top Eliminators run a 9.00 second index. Specially designed light­weight drag boats, itʼs not uncommon to see a bear hull weigh under three hundred pounds. These things are like putting a big engine in an eggshell. Like Pro Eliminators, many Top Eliminators also partic­ipate, making five rounds of competition for Sundayʼs Eliminations.
