Wooo-Hooo!! Problem Child scores third win in a row to start off the 2013 "Refuse to lose" tour..... What a great weekend in San Angelo, TX for the team, windy conditions at the starting line made it quite a challenge to keep these 8,000 horsepower monsters going straight but as always Madd Maxx outclassed the field winning with a 3.68 at just over 250 mph.. On to Augusta, GA for the Southern Nationals July 19-21 If your remotely close you have to come watch P.C. shoot for a fourth win in as many tries. Thanks to all that support this crazy endeavor of ours, we couldn't do it without the help of our wonderful sponsors and fans.. Stay tuned!!
The September race in San Diego has been moved to Wild Horse Pass motorsports Park (Formerly Firebird Raceway) in Chandler, AZ Sept. 13-15 attached is the link for your discounted hotel rates at the Radisson. Come stay with the team and have some fun with us.. http://www.radisson.com/eddieknoxboatrace
And the 2013 "Refuse to lose" tour continues to roll along undefeated. The Red line oil sponsored boat has won every race thus far at the Lucas Oil speedway in Wheatland, MO and we're showing no signs of giving up any races this year in hopes to win a third consecutive championship. We qualified #2 with a conservative 3.60 @ 244 in the first round.. After junkin' a bunch of parts at the first race I was forced to back it down a little to save on the $$$$ consumption so early in the season.. We ran a very stout 3.43 @ over 254 (low e.t. & top mph) of the meet during the first round and had an easy semi's due to the competition having issues getting their boat serviced in time. This would set up the classic show down with the Speed Sport
Special, the only two boats to have won a championship since 2006. The stage was set, the water a little bumpy and the race was ON!! Madd Maxx took a sizable hole-shot on the starting line and pedaled the ol' girl to victory with a 3.69 @ 244 !!! Woo-Hoo... We're on our way to San Angelo,TX for the next stop, look out Texas the Cali boys are a comin' to play!!!
WOO-HOO!!! Problem Child takes the victory at the season opener with a very stout 3.42 elapsed time at over 253 MPH..
The race was quite a challenge due to high winds which created a little problem during qualifying, Madd Maxx had his hands full trying to keep the ol' girl between the buoys but still managed to squeeze out the #3 spot despite the weather. (and me trying to rotate the earth) Come Sunday she was still a little cranky and Maxx had to pedal it to get the win but ran a record breaking 260 MPH in the process to win round 1 against the Toxic Rocket team. Next up we faced Hot Licks and again had to pedal it to get the win, unfortunately this time it GRENADED the engine near the finish line :-( The team swapped engines and was ready to rock for the final round, ROCK we did taking out the "Tequila Sunrise" boat for the trophy with an incredible 3.42 at dusk, a thing of beauty! All I can say is that MADD MAXX is one bad hombre and somehow managed to tame this beast just in time.. Great effort by the team to start out the 2013 "refuse to lose" tour by REFUSING to lose under very challenging circumstances.. Look out Missouri, your the next stop!!
Well it's about that time folks for the 2013 "Refuse to Lose" tour to get started, we hope you'll join us at Irvine Lake for the season opener.. So far it looks like we're going to have at least 7 top fuel hydro's so it should make for a great show.. Come watch us boil up some lake water and go for our third consecutive championship!!! See y'all there, EK
