Rick, owned a blown fule hydro, and a unblown gas hydro back in the 70's and 80's. He drove the unblown gas hydro himself, ans he had a driver for the fuel hydro. We ran drag boats the same time he did, and his operation back then was state of the art. Nobody used enclosed trailers for boat racing back then , so he had cube vans for all the tools and parts. His fuel hydro was the priemere boat back then, and It set many national records. Oh and the name of the boat he drove himself was "Preperation H". This is Rick on the left with his top fuel driver Jimmy Wright. The bottom photo is his fuel boat, and the second boat with the red scoop is the boat he drove.
