This is a pic. of a 28 powered by twin small blocks at a Miami race with Mike Thomas from TNT CUSTOM RIGGING on the throttles.

This race was held in 1986.

Look at how far the boat had been flying before it starts to land.You can tell by the no wake behind the boat.

This is a pic. of a 1988 Pantera powered with twin 600 HP big blocks by Hawk Marine with speed master drives.


This pictured was taken at a Sarasota National in 1992.

Jo, No supercross track that I know of....I was up there a couple of weeks ago and just the sand pit and the woods stuff. REAL muddy tho !!! My son had a great time until he had to clean the bikes !!! But it was one of the best times we have had up there. Let me know, we are going to do a camp out thing up there when the weather cools down abit. Dave Warden

Hey Wardy,


This is a picture of me at Air Dania a few months ago on my TM 250 Italian works bike.


I will let you know when I will be going up or let me know when you will be riding.There the word down here that the pit had been changed to a Supercross track.

I enjoy the whoop section.

Hey Wardy,


This picture was taken last month at Imokalee track near Naples.It is a big double they have there.

I wiped out last week on the Grandstand Jump at Air Dania and I am all bruised up , but happy I walked away from it.

It is 75 feet across and the face is approximately 12-14 feet high. It is a leap and a half.It is the biggest jump at any track that I have ridden at so far.I enjoy getting away from boats with this hobby.

My friend Mike Girard that raced the Sloppy Joes 46 Skater and owns the 35 Survivor on my website ran into my bike after I got thrown off it.He is all banged up also.He will most likely ride up at Croom with us.

Thank you for your pics.Is that your son with you there ?

Regards, JO

Jo, the Imokalee track looks just like the sand pit. There's no supercross track but it still has a little of everything. We try to hit the sand pit during the week when it's not as crowded or if it's real crowded we just go back into the woods to the hill climbs. Let me know when you want to ride. My son's football ends in November so after that i'm wide open. Are you going to the Worlds in the Key's? Dave Warden
