Default who Remembers Mark LaFleur LobsterBoy #22

All you old schoolers , Do any of you remember a Mark LeFleur AKA Lobster Boy. #22. I ran into him a while ago. He lives just across the way from my sister . Wow what a high energy guy he was telling me about the old days back when he raced , when I told him about the Boating TFT tour he about came unglued and has been a source of encouragement to move this event along He has sort of lost touch but not enthusiasm. He wanted me to extend big greeting to all his old running mates . Also to tag in as to who remembers him. Also E-mail me and I will forward to Him . He must have been some kind Fire Brand. He is still one heck of a nice guy SO al in all greetings from Lobster Boy Mark LeFleur #22

I remember him well. Cool guy, we had a lot of fun hanging with him down in KW years ago. I remember him searing the best tuna while sipping beers in the pits. Tell him Kurt said hello!

Mark is a great guy as well as his whole family. I speak to him about once a month, still as wacky as ever. He would call me before every race to wish us well. Miss him but he is part of The Jersey Boyz Family.

Mark was a good friend. I helped him load the truck to move. He was the guy that recommended me for my first chance at racing. Told the owner I would be great. He was right. LOL I DID WIN.

I gave him some restaurant advice before he left. The idea was to start, or buy, a small cafe and enjoy his work.

I miss the energy he had for sure. The only guy I know that went as hard as Dave Branch 24/7.

Good to hear he's still the same.
