Why don't you blow hards whip out 10's of millions of dollars to sponsor races, promote the sport, or advance technology in th sports. Sorry to burst your I beat a Fountain ego. Just goes to show how awsome Fountain's really are. Anyone thats gives to sh*ts about one stupid POKER RUN should remember the HUNDREDS of victory's the Fountain has under there belt. Lets look at the list of names above now for example.....
Mike Fiore....who gives a sh*t.
Bill Taylor....I believethat Reggie has sponsored many events for them. Also has spend many advertising dollars with them.
Bob Teage...great guy. How many drives, motors and parts has he sold to fountain owners? Im sure he would admit that if it wasnt for Reggie this sport would never have reached todays standards.

The bottom line......SAY WHAT YOU WANT ABOUT REGGIE. DOES HE HAVE AN EGO? DARN RIGHT!!! DOES HE HAVE A REASON TO? WITHOUT DOUBT!!
and he made millions from sponsoring those races as well...this is just like the farce video that they did about the don aronaow race...his full blown race boat only beat my pleasure boat by less than 35 minutes... and I only have 500 efi's and its a pleasure boat.......he should just get off the high horse and and stop spreading bull like this...http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/s...d.php?t=189642

Hmmm, if I read this right...There was no cat chasing a V...It was a V trying to keep up with a cat.

By your rational, Triple Digits should be respected too?? Lots of people ready to put the smack down on his dumb azz because of his outlandish false claims.

WTF has Reggie contributed to his sport except self promotion? Maybe if he actually worked on bringing the sport together by working with others to unify offshore racing instead of being one of the main problems in fractioning it I could sit back and agree with the comment "we wouldn't be where we are with out him"...Give me a f*ckin' break.

Too bad all his "accomplishments" are underscored by his huge ego that makes him and his company look bad. I don't think there's a more detested person in offshore boat building/racing. And that's a sad thing when you look at what he's done FOR HIMSELF!

So fountainracing65, pull Reggie’s balls out your mouth and just admit that his stupid f*ckin' BS ad campaign "cat killer" just backfired in his face and all of those that roll their eyes at his antics and bold face lies, are smiling when he gets his arrogant azz handed to him.

Reggie quote: "Fastest, safest, best handling boats"

Fastest? Lie!
Safest? Whatever, how do you judge that?
Best handling? Extremely arguable!

Nice ad campaign. His board should fire him before the rest of his ego runs his company completely into the ground!

Just my .02....Then again, I could be completely wrong.

Wow you should consider running for president with that ability to rewrite history!
My recollection is gino 1st ,teague/ whittier 2nd in a 368 skater w 525's . The 525 fountain was the 1st v bottom, but only because the outerlimits v had some navagational challenges
