Thanks Guys! Although I have to tell you it was a li'l bittersweet and would have been impossible without my crew working around the clock Thursday night. While testing late Thursday afternoon, we broke one of the alcohol engines. Seems that the tuner forgot to tighten one screw on the throttle linkage which fell off while just above idle before a full throttle run. When it fell, it signaled a solenoid to start dumping alcohol as if we were at full throttle resulting in an explosion within the intake manifold. Shook the whole boat! Had to take it back to the marina and install a pair of our standard gas Sterling engines. Pretty disappointing for the whole team but everything happens for a reason. Already starting the teardown/rebuild as I type

I feel bad for you guys but it's just a year or we can just set the course again in a few weeks.
I need another shot to pull 130+ we had a slight trim button problem.

You guys coming next year? You've been ducking it for a couple years!! I know you had a good time when you were at LOTO! What's the deal?

I know Geico sells insurance in Missouri also and a lot of people come down from Warren's home town so it's got to be a worth while trip!

35,000 spectators and potential customers on Saturday..come on guys!
