RIQUE......Even his name is a myth and a legend. My apologies for misspelling it a second time. Maybe I can make it up to you in Pittsburgh??

Mike,
You should have left a message Saturday or called early. We could have helped even though our Limo is reserved for customers. I have friends. By the time I saw you it was too late.

The old girl still looks good especially in RED.

It was good to see some fresh faces at the race site.

Let me know what you guys want to do.

As for Pitsburg, that would be great but I would need some sponsorship for the abuse the powertrain takes. I would have a hard time talkin the wife into a new engine and drive twice a year.
Tom I had a great time and a great ride! Thank you for getting me on the water this weekend. You drove a great race for a first time rookie, I never felt like the boat was ever out of shape and you drove a very clean line. I think your boat could be set-up to run P4 safely without much wear and tear to the equipment, I know it will be hard for you to stay away now that you've had a taste!

Thanks to AMF and POPRA for putting on such a great event. Kevin Cooper is going to make this "THE" event people will be putting on their calendars for years to come. Great job Kevin and thanks again for your help.

Brian

Thanks to all for helping. We may not have made the start line, but what an experience it was.

If you want to race, just find a way to make it happen. We did, well sort of.

Oh by the way, Mike, don't show up to the NEXT race driving a PT Cruiser with a rainbow flag on the bumper, people might get the wrong impression.


RacingInTheRed - We were the start/finsih boat and were sorry to see you break just before the start area! I'm sure there is a ton of work and effort just to get that far.....but we'll see you next year??? Right?????
