I dont know you well enough to call you Chuck...but a standing "O" from me!!!! someone who is a huge auto racing fan and loved CART in the 80s, it had it all. And yes I certainly remember Danny's Spin and Win, blew our minds!....watched it on the tube with 5 of my buddies like we did every Indy 500.....Congrats on a lifetime of achievement, I couldnt imagine how cool it would be to be you....D

Let me add one thing too. I have known Chuck for 10 years, boating together a few times a year and various get together's. For those of you who don't know him, Chuck is one of the nicest and most humble guys you will ever meet. Among a sport of many chest pounding "A"-type personalities, he is that quiet, lead by example guy. I remember the first time we met in 2001, I was running a 22' Donzi and by far had the tightest budget and was the youngest in the poker run. We (with his wife who is an awesome person and leader of team Woo-Hoo) spent the weekend hanging out, partying and having a good old time together. It wasn't until years and many drinks together later that I learned about his storied history.

Ok I will stop now, I don't want his head to get to big!

I second this. All those memories in print will add more wealth to your estate, which of course will allow you to buy a bigger boat!

Congrats Chuck! I will second that you would never know what Chuck has done in his past. I had no idea! That is an awesome resume. See you on the water more this coming year! Merry Christmas!

Chuck, on one hand you've had a dream come true career, and on the other you've got phenomenal memories and time now to savor those and enjoy whatever you wish to do. Best to you and yours in this next chapter of life
