    Default Comp Jet - Dead or Alive ?

    Comp Jet, is it dead ? It seems that the class can't make it to any races. They flaked on Havasu Landing. They decided that Brawley was too tight of a course to run at. Now at Ming, they say they don't have enough running boats to make a class, I heard a rumor that it only takes 4 boats to make a class. This is very hard to comprehend and it is starting to sound like a local club racing deal not a National Class. What about the guys in NC or St. Pete that might want to come out ? Being it on the sanction I am sure there might be a few boats that want to run for points. My feeling on this is just because your big bad engine is not ready, put your lower HP back-up motor in. No shame in showing up and racing. I also heard it said that it is a better idea to show up with a full field of boats than show-up with just only 4 boats to field the class. Well guys IMO it is better to show with something than nothing at all. Kind of like making it to the Super Bowl and not showing because you know you will get your ass kicked. How many other classes have only the minimum amount of boats to make a legal race ? This is racing anything can happen. IMO, the Compitition Jet Class is dying once again !

    no, its not dead. or dying. you obviously are out of the loop of whats going on within the class if you honestly think that. if you havent noticed, the economy isnt doing that great and racing isnt cheap. The passion is there and everyone is motivated, but sometimes people need to take care of other things before they go blow a ton of money on racing.

    just give it some time, people will get their boats back together and be back out there racing.

    just to add to what i said to confirm to everyone this class is not dead or dying or even close to it. theres 3 new boats that will be making their debut at the next race. we have a lot of new guys coming out and racing with us.

    call it what you want, but this class is growing. the facts are in the numbers. just because we didnt have a boat count for the ming race doesnt call it 'dead'.

    Those are looking good Ron. Let me know when you're ready to start the mass production and marketing of them.

    I agree Brad everyone is struggling economically right now, hell at Parker there were no SS, no K's, 4 or 5 pro stock, full class of comp jets but they all broke first day...
