    Nice recovery, good job to all involved. It would be really cool to see him win the overall. good luck and race safely for a win.

    today in the first heat, yonker's boat was destroyed. he's ok. in the first attempt at a main, harold bruce was spit out. in the final main, jim rich's boat had problems and dropped out. out of 11 that started the weekend, only 4 were still running. jeremie robinson won, the 123 boat finished 4th. the 123 driver should be off double-secret newby driver probation after all this, and be able to race next time...

    Tom Bandy, driving the 123 boat, was not under any driving restrictions this week end. He did a fine job driving the boat and getting it back on the water after the soaking... It's pretty obvious that what happened to him also happened to four other highly experienced drivers... Not sure why the Comp Jets suffered so much carnage other than some very quirky water...

    i would like to thank everyone for all there help, do to my rooky mistake and still having a lot to learn i created a work wknd instead of lets have some fun wknd. thanks to Jack, Brad, Bob, Lance, Mark, Roger, Chrys, Suzy, Jennifer, Debbie, everyone busted there ass to get the boat back running and in the water so i could make more laps, only to gane more seat time. i would like to put this behind us and call it a learning experience, one i'd prefer to not do again. last but not least thanks to rescue, most of which are the same that are at NJBA races, these guys are the tops.

    things aren't always as easy as they look, but its fun. thanks for the words of encouragement from the other CJ drivers.


    Tony S. thanks, you know what i mean
    Grady, great job, and Jeremy, congrats on the win.

    I spoke directly with Tom advising him that he was unrestricted as far as the Class was concerned. He just needed to run the rookie stripes on his helmet. (Note to Tom: 'Big Stripes' ) Now if Jack held back on the reigns, that's a different kettle of fish.
