There's so sign of slowing down for Lucas Oil Drag Boat Series champion Tony Scarlata

WHEATLAND, Missouri (June 9, 2017) - As his 50th birthday nears, it might be easy for Tony Scarlata to think about slowing down. But for one of the champions of the Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series, there's no hitting the brakes just yet.
 
"How long do I want to keep doing this? Until I can't physically climb into and out of a boat," Scarlata said, with a laugh. 

The California native has been racing Top Alcohol Flat Bottom boats, which routinely go in excess of 160 miles per hour, since 1990. This weekend, in the Tommy Thompson-owned Shazam, Scarlata seeks his third win in three 2017 series starts during the 6th annual John Haas Memorial Drag Boat Classic at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Scarlata, from Corona, Calif., said it's always special to return to Lake Lucas for multiple reasons. Action resumes on Saturday with day two of qualifying.  

"This one's definitely at the top," Scarlata said. "Number one, it's Lucas Oil and that's our primary sponsor. Number two, there's something special about that man-made lake."

Scarlata explained that it's "very close-quartered" as opposed to spread out like events on natural lakes and rivers the series often competes on. At Lake Lucas, the spectators have prime viewing "and there's not a bad seat in the house."

"It's just very prestigious to win the Lucas Oil Speedway way," Scarlata added.

While some drag-boat racers got started driving dragsters on pavement, Scarlata always has stuck to the water. He explained how it came naturally, growing up in southern California where his family always went boating. There often was friendly competition between friends and other families.

"Their boat might be fast," Scarlata said. "You're riding with your dad and you always want your boat to be faster than the other family's boat. That right there, when you're a kid, gets you hooked into going fast on the water. Then I made a trip out to a race and I was hooked right there."

As a teen-ager, Scarlata began to lobby his dad, Jim Scarlata, about getting him a boat to race. Jim Scarlata, who punted in the NFL for the Denver Broncos, said if Tony earned a college football scholarship that he would help him buy a drag boat.

Tony Scarlata, a running back and linebacker in high school, did earn a scholarship to Oregon State where he was a punter. Upon graduation, his dad followed through with the boat and a racing career began. 

Unlike other who aspired to drive the faster "jet" type boats such as Top Fuel Hydro or Top Alcohol Hydro, Scarlata always has stuck with the Top Alcohol Flats. They're often called the "Funny Cars" of boat racing, in comparison to drag cars.

"The bottom line is the flat bottoms are the boats that you have to drive," Scarlata said. "It's like when you ride a motorcycle. Any time you turn, you have to lean into the turn. It's all you. It's the same thing in this boat. We drive these things and we tell them how they're going to go down the track. A jet boat or a hyrdo when you get into them, all you do is step on the gas.

"If you were to throw you in my boat, you probably wouldn't even get it off the starting line. That's just the way they are. They are set up to be driven. That's why I like them."

Even though he won the season's first two events, Scarlata said he thinks the best is yet to come from Shazam. 

"We haven't had the perfect boat or engine yet, but we've won," Scarlata said. "That's just because we know how to race. We get by with what we have. But now we have a brand new boat. We had a test in Bakersfield two weeks ago and ran the first sub-5-second pass ever, basically on our first full lap down the track. So we just packed up the boat and sent it (to Wheatland)."

Scarlata's goals remain simple. He turns 50 in July with his eyes on a seventh series championship at season's end.

"The goal is to go undefeated, win the championship and set records along the way," he said. "Ultimately, at the end of the year, you want to be up there on the podium at the awards ceremony."

Action in the Haas Memorial continues on Saturday with action also set at night on the dirt track as the Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series returns. Eliminations conclude and finals for the drag boats are Sunday.
