    Smile Special Thanks!!!!

    I would just like to say thank you to all of the great people that helped with the C/J 402.

    Fist are the Moyles if it wasn't for them and there confidence in my ability to drive their boat
    I would not be racing. They asked me to drive their boat when Mark was injured and have supported
    me through the last year and have given me the opportunity of a lifetime. THANK YOU

    Second is Richard & Lisa Hammond (RIVERBOTTOM AUTOBODY) Richard spent countless hours rebuilding,
    fiberglassing and repainting the 402 so that I would have a safer more reliable and nicer looking boat.
    Lisa has supported us in this project by being a very understanding an loving wife by putting up with
    Richard and I.

    There are countless others to thank also. Advantage Boats for some interior gel coat and a new rub rail.
    D&L Auto Parts, Harold Bruce (R&D Marine), Terry Volore (for a ride plate when mine came up missing),
    Glen Dillworth, Jason Becker and Barry Obler for an awesome power plant, Southcoast Stainless, Riverspeed & Sport
    and all of my friends that stood there and kept me entertained while I worked on the boat. I also want to thank
    all of my fellow Racers. If it wasn't for the entire Comp Jet Class we would not be racing at all.

    Last I want to thank my Mom. Burley was the first race that she has came to watch me race. She was originaly
    apprehensive about my racing and after the little incident in Parker (that didn't help either) I was supprised when
    she decided to come to Burley. Needless to say she is a great supporter and enjoyed herself. THANKS MOM

    SO FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART THANK YOU TO EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!

    Congrats Louis, glad to hear the racing was fun and "pitch free". After seeing the pics of your Advantage I went out and punched mine in the nose for being so damm ugly and slow.lol (broke the motor last week) Barry said in practice last week you were charging well into the 90s. How did you finish out the weekend? What mph and lap times were you running, how did you place? I ask so I know what to shoot for when I start rebuilding my 73 Rogers to come out and play next year.

    Hey Warren.

    Yes it was really nice to have a great weekend. Thursday on a test run I ran 90.0 mph. Friday in the first heat I ran 90.5 and the fastest I ran all weekend was 90.8 this was all on my GPS not the official scoring. The only lap time that I know was the one i ran for the Qualifier which was 57.32, I finished out the weekend #1 Qualifier, First in the heat and final on Friday and first in the heat and final on Saturday. Overall in the race for the mink (although comp jet was not eligible to win the mink) I finished 5th with a overall lap percentage of 101.3%.

    Hey Little Brother, you did a great job of driving. Not too shabby for a farmer from Blythe . Looked as if your whole crew was enjoying a good weekend. Glad the announcers finally figured out who was driving. Great to see you guys again.
