Additional Candidates Added to the NPBA Hall of Fame

The voting has started and it is "fast and furious"...great response!
A few name/teams have been added by me or by friends and fans:
John Bochis CRAZY GREEK RACE TEAM 1975
John DeMeno B-52, ARMED & DANGEROUS 1984
Fillipone Bros DOUBLE VISION RACING 1983
Werner Kuenzle BORDERLINE RACING 1984
Tim Sharkey APOLLO, SHOCKWAVE 1987
J.D. D'Elia BREAKAWAY RACING 1983
As I locate past yearbooks, I will continue to add Teams, but please keep writing in to help me.
My direct e-mail address is [email protected]
Charlie McCarthy, Rich Luhrs, and additional guest speakers will entertain us with their race stories on Friday nite, June 13th while we induct the 1st round of NPBA HALL OF FAMERS.
...and everybody seems to be bringing their old raceboats to play in the NEW YORK CITY POWERBOAT POKER RUN the following day...what a show!

Thumbs up

Cool idea Billy!

This should be a great addition to the event this year!

I look forward to seeing some old racers that I have not seen in years and the stories we can all tell!

Default Betty Cook

Unfortunately, Betty Cook did not have the opportunity to race in the NPBA. As you can see, alot of other famous racers did.
