My "pleasure boat" held up to some pretty rough treatment back in the mid 90's. I absolutely loved the boat!

That was my very first race. I think I bought 346 copies of the video tape and 82 copies of every picture that had us in it.

They know the rookies are going to buy whatever they have.

Yes, I consider him one of my best friends and have known him for over 30 years. He does do custom fab work for IROC. Very talented guy
