U-98 “Graham Trucking American Dream Driver Corey Peabody [INTERVIEW]
H1 Unlimited hydroplanes are the fastest racing boats. With deep history, the 116 year-old sport ‘s majority of hydroplanes are powered by turbine-engines that produce 3,000 horsepower, allowing the H1 Unlimited hydroplanes to reach speeds of nearly 200 mph, producing a massive 60-foot tall, 300-foot long wall of water called a roostertail behind them. With very few restrictions, these majestic Hydroplanes race in front of shorelines and riverfronts packed with fans on bodies of water throughout the United States.
U-98 “Graham Trucking American Dream Driver Corey Peabody stopped by the Key Studios this morning for an interview with his adorable son 'Race' who slept the entire time...lol I actually learned something new from Corey about the Hydroplane that I never knew...
Here's what the media is saying about Corey and the U98
Another unexpected challenger this season has been 40-year-old rookie driver, Corey Peabody (Kent, Wash.), driver of the second entry of owner Rob Graham (Mercer Island, Wash.). Peabody is a childhood neighbor of Kelly, now his teammate, drives the U-98 “Graham Trucking American Dream” and sits fourth in high points.
In the offseason, Rob Graham purchased the aging race boat that was built and raced by the late Fred Leland. As a tribute to Leland, Graham duplicated the spirit of his early H1 Unlimited hydroplane sponsorship with Leland by duplicating the race boat’s livery. Graham first sponsored a hydroplane in 1996 and became an owner three years ago.
