Gene left a big growth curve, a huge fleet, willing sponsors, a feeling of unity, a veteran management team, and a great legacy.

2000-2002 were a product of M-O-M-E-N-T-U-M...nothing more.

If not the sport would have grown bigger and better right through today.

Mike,

Rich is right. Gene and his staff were responsible for everything that went right from 1999-2003 and I was personally responsible for everything that went wrong.

Well I guess I just don't know chit or can see chit. I must have been dreaming when I saw the increase each year of boat counts, sponsors and especially the awesome Speed Channel shows put on by APBA during that time. But hey, you were the guy then so I'lltake your word for it. I understand momentum and never discounted Mr Whipps legacy so please understand that. Rich I must apollogize to you for anything I said that was out of line on this subject.
