Drag Boat Fever! is a coffee table style picture book that consists of 80 pages and over 100 pictures of the exciting world of professional drag boat racing. Drag Boat Fever! has a variety of photographs of the drag boats and the participants of past years who thundered on the liquid quarter mile; from Ron Braaksma in his famed roll caged Top Fuel Hydro Madness, to Jim Benson in his red hot Pro Gas Hydro Hot Blooded, to Rod Corning's Wasted Nights, the first capsule flatbottom, to Jim Ermshar in his Top Alcohol Flat Mako Force as well as many others. Most of the photographs are pit and holding rope scenes. The race venues focus on the west coast such as Firebird Raceway, Puddingstone, Chowchilla, Red Bluff and Castaic.
Page three excerpt from Drag Boat Fever!: "A weekend of Professional Drag Boat racing is a weekend filled with excitement! Starting with qualifying on Saturday and concluding with eliminations on Sunday, spectators are always on the edge of their seats. The drivers accept the glory and excitement of the liquid quarter mile but also the danger of it. Their skill at handling these machines is critical to the outcome of victory or defeat. When the spectators take a walk through the pit area, they will feel like they are at a custom boat show. These drag boats are beautifully maintained, where even the smallest piece of hardware or fastener is chromed, polished, anodized or powdercoated to match the boat's paint scheme. It is Drag Boat Fever!"
