    Default Hey 6.0 QE guys

    Thanks for making that class happen. It was a freaking riot being on the rope with you guys. It really took the edge off of racing. Cyclone, you really stepped your deal up. Kjell, that was yours for the taking. I remember watching your first pass at 5.97 and from there you lived in the 0.s We had officially 14 boats sign up for the class. Not all of them made it to run but it was a stout showing for our first time. We kept Lucas off our backs by not clobbering the 5.70 number. Watching the last couple rounds from the stands gave me a chance to hear the crowd when you guys ran. It sounded like they loved it so hopefully this sticks around. Note to self: It's easier to tune to 6.0 than to dump the gas. Ron and Dillon, DeCark, Big John, Vinnie, Vulgarsons, Texas Red, Outa sight, Milton, and the guys all the others that ran, awesome job!!

    Never thought I'd be into 1000ft racing but that was the most fun I've had in awhile. Looking forward to doing it again.

    Thanks for making it happen tony.

    Thanks for making it happen Tony. I honestly wasn't sure if we could run the number but she came around. I hope it sticks and we will support it if its still around in the future!!!

    Thanks Tony, I wasn't sure how the 405 was gonna run after hearing all the stories about Firebird water, air going to hell in a hand basket. But after T and T. I felt a little better. The whole weekend was a blast and everyone in the class was running hard. I'll be honest, it was very different that racing at Ming. There are a lot more distractions and little things going on at that place, stuff that you'd really only notice if you were driving. I think for an open boat class 6.0 1000 ft is the place to be for the 405. I hope we can do it at Ming some time as an experiment. Heck we still ran 143 to 1000 ft and the 1320 buoy looked very very far away.

    If they decide to continue it as a class I'll definitely be ready for another shot at it.

    Tony thanks for the effort getting it together, we had a blast for the first time with it couldn't be more happy we ran a 5.94, 5.98, 6.06, then fell asleep @ the tree but ran a 6.05. If it sticks that would be cool thx

    Hopefully this class sticks around and makes it to the other organizations. My Dad said he wants to run the Cheyenne in it next year if they do it in SLDBA or KDBA.

    It was definitely the most competitive and exciting class there. I hope it stays.

    Tony,
    even though we broke at Bakersfield and couldn't make it, I was watching live online.
    Thanks for all your hard work putting it together, it was obviously a success! I will talk to Mike and see if it is something that could be brought into the NJBA as well.
    Have a great holiday.

    Default Thanks!

    This was a great event and to watch and assisting in the pits for the 999 boat was a blast! I would hope that the NJBA adopts this class for next year. I know i would like to get my boat back together and see if i can run that class next year. All of you guys are a great group, cant wait for next season!

    My first time to the races so everything was cool to me, but the 6 second class stood out. I didn't miss a round. Awsome show guys! The crowd loved it.
