Those Remembered

In Memoriam

These are members of our drag boat racing family who are no longer with us. They contributed to drag boat racing from 1960 to 1979. They are the drivers, owners, tuners, photographers, representives and manufactures who made it all happen. In no way do we want to slight or diminish the contributions of those who ran other classes or came into drag boat racing after 1979*, but this site has a time line and a format and that will be held here as well as in the photos.

*Note: As of 01-01-11 we will be honoring those who gave their all post 1979. A ** indicates post 1979.

Please e-mail me anybody you feel should be included here and it will be done. I know there are many names still missing. Remembered

Names in magenta are drivers who suffered fatal injuries while racing.
The
* indicates they were (among other things) a driver.
