Default Got to sit in Bad Moon Rising

Crew Chief Manger is a friend of mine, last weekend was my bachelors party so we meet him at the race shop for a tour at loto. All I can say is WOW! Four spare motors, four spare drives. The support trailer was Richard Petty's, It has every to rebuild the boat. Sitting in the boat was very intimidating. Thanks Ron.

Caused me to remember years ago, I was working at the Fort on 188 st, I think it was early on a Saturday night. The marina was closed but the resturant was open, (of course I was cooling off at the bar.) In comes 4 or 5 guys, one of which was Darrell Gwynn, (Top Fuel), he was in his chair tricked out with billett wheels. One of the guys on his team was havin a bachelor party, and they were just cruisin around lookin at hot rods and such. No one around and they wanted to get in the marina and look at some hardware, no problem I said, let me hook you up. Great guys, way laid back, very appreciative, DG and his team are a class act.

Morgan is an animal on them sticks! I miss watching them in KW. Nothing compares to the sound of 4 big a$$ Boyd built engines screamin' into the harbor! (Turbines sound pretty cool too!)
2 years ago I was thinking about dropping the coin he wanted to race the season with them.
I think if he (Bob) could find someone with the $$, he would be racing again.
