About the Team

The Problem Child Top Fuel Hydro is a product of the partnership between Eddie Knox Racing and Larry Bless. This partnership has been highly successful, including winning the 2006, 2011, 2012 & 2013 World Championships and recording some of the quickest & fastest liquid quarter-mile and 1,000' passes in history.

“Fast” Eddie Knox began his career in the sport of drag boat racing behind the wheel of his own machine. Beginning in 1989, Eddie studied and learned the art of engine-tuning and progressed to championship status.

Eddie has been part of (8) World Championships, (6) Runner Up Championships, (45+) national event wins and "WORLD RECORDS" in every pro category he has raced in. All of these accomplishments have come from all facets of the drag boat racing world; an owner, a driver and a crew chief. His “Problem Child” boat is known the world over for its consistent record setting performance. Today, Eddie Knox Racing is a major force in the sport of drag boat racing with several racers competing using Eddie Knox Racing prepared engines.

Eddie Knox Racing builds and maintains all of its own engines, boats, and transporters in order to offer their sponsors only the very best in performance and quality. Eddie Knox Racing is an organized group of dedicated members that are motivated to offer its sponsors the best value for their dollar, and to represent them with quality and integrity.
