Marble Falls, TX., (Aug. 12th, 2012) The final day of the 21st Annual Lakefest featuring the Lucas Oil Drag Boat Series started with a change of plans. Racing on water is not nearly the same as land, and with Mother Nature kicking up a breeze the Pro classes had to be delayed. At the high speeds the Pro classes hit and slight chop could mean disaster. The slower classes are somewhat less susceptible to less than perfect water conditions.

As part of the festivities, television star and Austin native, Jesse James was on hand taking in the action on the ‘liquid quarter mile.’ Matt Hagan, who was on vacation from NHRA this weekend and picked up his Lucas Oil Drag Boat license piloting Randy Benson’s, Texas Bounty Hunter, also stuck around to enjoy the racing.

Pro Modified driver Tommy Thompson took a spill during round 1 of eliminations in the class. The boat jumped out of the water, nosed back in and came apart. The capsule stayed intact and above water, with Thompson able to give the rescue crew the ‘thumbs up’ and only suffer a sore back.

Ehrlich Eases Away in Top Fuel Finals
Daryl Ehrlich backed up last year’s win pretty much dominating the class in his Eddie Knox owned, Red Line Oil sponsored, Problem Child. Ehrlich was paired up with Scotty Lumbert(Spirit of Texas) for the finals and spotted him a tenth on the tree. After half track, Ehrlich drove aroundLumbert who had issues and slowed his pace, giving the win light to Ehrlich.
