I'm proud to say I shook your hand when you stepped out of the Denali on Saturday morning of the Ozarks OSS Races. I was the guy in the running shorts...out for my morning jog down to the dry pits checking out the hardware. You are a credit to the sport Mr. Haggin...keep going full throttle.

BTW...Scott and Marc are awesome as well...Straight Jacket and I yacked with them about starting racing for a while Sunday morning down on the docks. Team Geico rocks.

It seems Mr. Haggin has learned much from his family and is not resting on his dad's laurals, I hope he is in this for the long haul, the sport can use more down to earth people like him, hats off!

Mr. Haggin does have an admirable lifestyle that needs emmulating. I don't care how he makes it, all I care is how I'm going to make it happen!

My only question: How much does it take to be EBM's “Professional” Extreme Boater of the year?

More realistic. What kind of money does it take to run each of the classes, either cat or V?

The most important role we as fans can do though. Make it known that we exist! Companies sponsor racers based on how much exposure their "brand" is going to get. Same with broadcast networks, they sell advertising and part of that is based on how many watch the program. United we get to watch more races on TV!!!!!
