Ed Smith, owner of Riversbend Marina in St Clair Michigan has gone so far out of his way to help our team that I wanted to publicly thank him. We wouldn't be racing Miss GEICO or the Caveman this weekend without him.
Sean Smith, Glassdave, Bob Costa, and Tyler Crockett also were very instrumental in us making it to the Course in St Clair and I can't thank you enough for all the help. You guys are great and I hope we can return the favors some day Thank YOU
I would also like to extend a very greatful THANK YOU to both Ed & Julie who both assisted in helping us switch out engines on Sat & Sun evenings. Without them we would never been able to race on Sunday.
Also Bob Teague needs to be mentioned. Without him we would not of had a spare engine to swing. So on behalf of my Team Members and especially myself I wanted to THANK Bob for being so generous.
Expect nothing less from the OPA. Every competitor is family and willing to help each other get to the starting line no matter what it takes.
It just seems to happen a lot more every year in St Clair.
I can recall Team WANTED the night they needed to get their engines running after getting a bath.
Loan Shark where people jumped in to save their engines as well.
A great group no doubt !
