Title Type Teaser Updated/commented date
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!

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.

Pro Eliminator (IHBA) Class

Pro Eliminator is the 8.00 second class. There has to be a line some­where and the eight second class is it, although a few Pro Comp Eliminators can run a little under 8 seconds. The Pro Eliminator runs the quickest a boat can run in the IHBA without a driverʼs safety Capsule. Large numbers of boats can show up for Pro Eliminator, sometimes creating five rounds of competition during Sundayʼs Eliminations.

Pro Mod (IHBA) Class

The 7-second Pro Mod can be any hull design; outboards, jet drives, flat bottoms, or the most common hull in the class, a hydro, short for “hydroplane”. With or without super chargers on the engines, the name of the game is to run seven seconds to the thousandths of a second. Modern technology is everywhere you look in Pro Mods computerized fuel systems, throttle stops and engine timing. With crew chiefs in the pits monitoring air density, temperature, wind and just about everything else you can think of, Pro Mods are an absolute favorite to watch.

Top Alcohol Flat (IHBA) Class

Top Alcohol Flats are in a league of their own. They have the char­acteristics of a pavement funny car, but on water use the same power plant as the Top Alcohol Hydros. Top Alcohol Flats donʼt have the 3 point hydro to help guide them down the track. They rely on only a steering rudder and a ride plate, operated by the driver. The bottom of the boat is flat. Top Alcohol Flats run quarter mile ETs in the mid to upper sevens, with speeds at 160 to 170 mph.
