We are working on a series of articles centering around the greatest names in drag boat history. Would really appreciate a list of names from our members ranging from the 60s until current. Please provide driver, class that he drove and the name/s of the boat.

One of my favorites was Dennis Pollacia. Drove for 3 factory blown fuel hydro teams during his career.
1. Howard boats entry " Out-a-Sight
2. Hondos " After Shock "
3. Sangers " Climax "

Always a crowd pleaser. Especially when they fired and drove to the rope. Always wore the helmet with the two round air filters on the front. Badd Ass.

Dave Nolte was another. Drove his own alcohol hydro called " Ass Bite ".
Later drove the fuel hydro for Paul Allen called " Liberty " which I had the pleasure to paint. Dave lost his life doing what he loved @ Chowchilla in I believe 1986.
