either way skater's got to be smiling all the way to the bank.
Kind of remind's me of back in the day when Don was building boat's for the bad guy's and faster boat's for the good guy's, or was that the other way around ?
Fountain builds their race boats in house.

I got a hard time believing that one. It simply defies common sense and assumes Fiore is a dope.

Reggie doesnt control the bridge!!He knows when it is open though.He knows that it closes at a specific time in the morning.

But hey, Bud . . . ( this is just between you and me ).

Don't you think ( considering the costs associated with transporting a large, one-of-a-kind race vessel from R.I. to the Carolinas ) . . .
That the injured party would voice SOME kind of protest ? . . .that the possibility of making a run with the bridge OPEN would, at least, be discussed ????

Do you think that Reggie would ( or could ) 'slam the door' on any such discussion, and send them packing up I-95 ? . . or that Mike would say "OK Reggie, you're right. We didn't know the train schedule. We will just go back home." . . .

C'mon bubba. . . . you can do better than that. So can OL. . .. just bring it.
Hopefully do it during daylight hours - maybe with an impartial witness. . . that'd be cool.

I was there and i was at the drivers meeting.It wasnt brought to Fiores attention.He was running his boat at the other end of the lake that morning when it broke.He found out after the fact.Everyone got assigned a time slot to do their kilo that day.Coincidentally, Reggies run was scheduled to be one of the first runs before the bridge was closed.I am sure if OL didnt break and they had a shot this would have been a major issue.
