    Default Mattaponi Madness Drag Boat Racing 2012

    OK, I asked almost 8 months ago and I got 2 responses. 1...Yes its happening and 2...An inquiry from Rich S. Is there any interest other the me and my buddy Rich ? I only have my backup motor and I have no idea what Rich has up his sleeve for which boat and / or power he intends to bring down for the meet. He had an inquiry on his holding rope, can anyone clear up this ? Phil jr. to the courtesy phone please !!!!! Men, thanks for your time, Happy Jack.

    Ok, it was exactly one year ago, plus or minus a few minutes, that the Grape Ape informed us about Irene cancelling out the race. Its looking like tomorrows race may be interrupted by rain. Hope not. Leaving home about 5:30 to get in early to help everyone else watch it rain.

    At this point the race is on. Our rain date is Sunday which isn't looking much better. So we are hoping the rain will hold off and we will get some action in .

    I realize it's too late this year but when I was surfing your website I could never find the inboard classes. The link got me to a waiver and in the forms section all I found was flat, hydro, jet or outboard and then blown, injected and type of fuel.

    I see it was a 1000' course with a 100' pairing but how are the classes broke up for flats specifically?

    Thanks,
    Loren

    Jack,

    Yes that was my boat. But no bye run for me! Boat ran really well and definitely made me happy. Hope to see you there next year or maybe Lake Anna beforehand. Also hope to see a larger crowd next year. Had a great time this weekend, also thanks to gogas4yoass for the loaners.
