Default The GOOD and BAD in Daytona!....

First I would like to say that the loss of Jack in Daytona really hit home to a lot of racers and fans...It is a HUGE loss to offshore racing. Jack did not talk a lot of ****. He just went out there and showed everyone, time and time again that he was one of the best throttlemen in the sport....AND with out a doubt the best a Formula has ever seen! They put a huge effort into racing and it showed! Our team will for sure miss him! I think Jack would like to see the rest of us continue doing what we love doing! I would like to think he went how he wanted.....

Howard, I will not say i know know your pain, because I do not. The loss is tremendous!

The good?...Well,,,it seems so very small in comparison!

Joey,
Very true! The whole weekend was darkened by the loss of JS.
God bless his family.

Amen Joey, well said.


BTW, congrats on your win - I believe this is two years in a row now? Looks like Daytona might be your town...

Well said Audacity. I was wondering if the cause of death has yet been determined or released? Did he die as a function of the crash or was the crash a function of his death? i.e. heart attack etc? Certainly, this is a tragic loss to all. The reason for my curiosity is safety. Does safety need to be looked at? Is this just a racing incident? etc. Best wishes to the family of Jack.

from what i understand from people in the choppers....his jacket, helmet, clothes, and shoes were blown off due to the impact...he was under the water for 4 mins.

this is why i take safety in pleasure boating VERY seriously!...the speeds of todays hi-perf boats ARE serious!

Ron,,,the boats are closer than ever...in the drag race from the start we were NOT the fastest top end boat out there...just the fastest around the track.....NO ONE has 5 mph on ANYONE anymore...

It is definitely a sad day for boating and the APBA. Jack not only was a great throttlemen and overall boat racing competitor, but a wonderful person and my friend. Jack will be missed by all who have had the pleasure to know him in anyway, this world has truly lost someone special.


Please help to support Jack's family. Information can be found on the APBA and Formula websites.
