Our thoughts and prayers are with the Morgan and Tillman families, as well as their crew and friends. We are all very saddened by this. May they rest in peace.

Missed the KW race this year for the first time in a long while. Bob will be missed. Thinking back on the times spent with Bob and Rob checking out the new Bajas at Big Thunder. RIP.

Our Sport of Powerboat racing took a great hit on November 9th. May Bob and Jeff rest in peace. They are both great men. Lake of the Ozarks will never be the same. My prayers are truly with their families. God Bless.

I heard from Pat D (love ya) earlier today and there was a memorial for Bob and JT this morning in the pits. Pat said "Jim Black was so eloquent and Sue is doing well. We just shouldn't have a flag at 1/2 mast or racers crying at a race site"
