    Default 2014 KOSH King of the Lake

    It's time to roll out the money pits, an see what ya got. This years course is to be 1000 + feet. Pending the winds, speeds will be up in the upper 120's for the Champ.

    Chuck, do they have better radar guns now? Are you planning on running the southwind?

    From the horses mouth.... Tom Gimmer

    The Lake Koshkonong Speed Runs are Saturday August 16th, 2014. The Sunset Bar & Grill owners and crew have made a commitment to bring this event back to the level it once was. The Sunset crew will be running this event, however, Bill Gohr, myself, and others will be lending a helping hand to make sure this event runs as smoothly as possible. The 1000'+ speed run coarse will be measured, laid out and tested prior to competition, and speeds will be shot using a Stalker Professional Radar Gun with distance chip. This radar gun will also hold peak speed achieved anywhere within the 1000' trap should a driver need to get out of the throttle. Classes will be redefined for 2014 based on power, mods, hull type, interior, etc... similar to the early years, to provide the fairest competition possible. All boats will be tech inspected and classified by Bill Gohr prior to entry (so arrive early if at all possible). A designated 'pit only' pier area will be available for tools, props, fuel, etc. Speed data will be compiled via computer and posted as the days event progresses. You may purchase as many passes as needed throughout the day to stay on top of your class. 100% Payback+ in all classes. A $500 'King of the Lake' bonus award will be given to the fastest overall boat of the day regardless of class. Sunset Bar & Grill owners and crew have expressed their absolute commitment to making this event, once again, one of the premier performance boating events in the midwest. TG

    Great time!! Water seemed to be decent . It was good seeing all the boats run. it was great talking with Don and Chuck. Sorry if I was short. As usual the boy kept me busy. The best part was when we got home. Giving the boy a bath he had to play with a boat. Once he was dried him off and put to sleep he cried until we gave him his plastic boat to go to sleep with. Man did he make me a proud papa!

    Chuck, I am really impressed with how that boats running. It seams you really have it dialed in! It sounded great and looked really fast. Loved watching you give rides out to your friends! Everyone came back hootin & hollering! It was a great site to watch and listen to. It brought back many memories as a kid my dad doing the same. That gave me some drive to get back workin on mine...

    Awesome weekend! Jack great to see you, Donny thanks for the help with the boats... Lots of racing for the number of boats. Best showing of inboard V-8 boats in many years. The track was moved in closer to the shore line like it used to be, great for the view, not so great for the underwater challenged boats. Track conditions were excellent, how ever the water seemed sticky, speeds were way off. Brandon congrats on the jet division win, you have an envelope to pick up! Till next year
