    Dan Pastorini was the quarterback for the Raiders after that, I think.
    I met him on the sideline when I was in 5th grade. Go Raiders!

    Right you are, about Dan. I suppose you celebrated hard after last week's win over the gangstas across the bay?

    Damn Greg!!!!!! Doing a little math in my head and that was damn near 40 years ago!!!!!!


    I think it would be difficult to find ANYBODY that was racing then that is still active in the industry and building these things today......

    I can only think of a few..... I imagine you were in a Daytona then, fast fwd 40 years...... Still building the same boat...... Now that is a Legacy!!!!!!!

    Jason, you don't have to remind me the sad thing is I started racing with NJBA IN 1975. Not many 100 mph jets back in the day. It was a lot of fun to go out on the Parker strip and kick a lot of flatbottoms butts!!!!!
