Scotty and I are deeply saddend by this weekends tragedy. Very difficult to take in ... one min your talking and shaking hands and the next min they are gone. Earlier in the day I brought ESPN over to meet Phil and the gang. They were so excited and passionate about their new boat /power and were looking forward to a fun day on the water. Like Louie said we all lost Sunday.

We will be flying a black "57" on our transom in memory Phil and Kevin in Point Pleasant.

Godspeed guys

Marc thats a great idea flying the 57 on the boat for Point Pleasant, I think a lot of teams will want to do the same. I have a vinyl plotter and i'd like to offer to cut all the 57's for the rest of the teams if you have not already done so. I will bring them with me and make sure Alan has them at registration. Thanks see you guys next week.

Dave

Everyones love is really getting our family through this...anyone check out the photo of my Uncle in front of the Twin Towers in the Black Aero Express? Nice shot.

The thing that really helps us is that our guys died doing what they loved. My uncle always had that passion for speed, Nascar and Speedboats, those were his things. Some people do drugs, some do adrenaline, and he was an adrenaline JUNKIE! And so was Kevin.

It was evident today how sorely these two will be missed. Thank you so much for all your prayers, well wishes, flowers, emails, etc...
I was at the wake representing the On The Chip team.What a turn out for respects.
