Regarding my choice of using the , there doesn't seem to be a fox in the selection. You do know that a vixen is a fox, right? Aside from that, I work in the veterinary field and I have a special interest in reptilian medicine. There isn't a monitor or python to choose from either, so I choose to use the

Thank You Troutly...

Yes, we do have a blast racing. The guys race the boat and we video the race and take pictures of everything. The kids are responsible for running around in Vixen attire looking cute!

I have raced with these guys since 2000.
Nothing they do surprises me.
I am a Vixen Fan and now that I don't race against them I root for them

so jerri,

with all that money you spent why don't you run factory class. much cheaper, you get attention, you win money, get bigger sponsors ( especially if you showed them the dedication you have ) very few people do what you did. just a thought. keep pluggin. your lookin good.

Treadwell

p.s. i have never blown a factory motor yet. since 98

We did hang around long enough to get a pizza. George from Deranged was there with his crew at the same time.

We'll have to hook up for a hello at one of the upcoming Florida venues.

We got there just as they were dragging the dunker into the parking lot. Good luck with the rest of the season!

Boy, this post got alot more attention than I expected! Thanks for the all the PMs and suggestions!

GLH, Kitten, Cuda...thanks and we'll hook up for a hello in person one of these days!

ScottB...yours was the first team that we met at our first race. We always look forward to seeing you. I have some good video of you in Marathon. I'll see if I can talk Mag27 into making you a copy!

TreadwellMotorSports, I can only assume that Eric wrote that post. We met in St. Cloud 3 years ago but I haven't seen you in a while. Hope you are well! Factory may be in the cards down the road, but for now Mel enjoys the thrill of racing in his favorite Magnum with the engines that he has built. He and Dave rebuilt Vixen from the stringers up and it is very satisfying for them to race what they alone have worked so hard to put together. I think you'll understand better by seeing the start to finish pictures, so here is a link to our restoration page:

http://www.teamvixenracing.com/vixens_restoration.htm

This page takes just a little bit to download.

Team Vixen Racing is a family. We're not looking for sponsors. What we do, we do because we LOVE boat racing.

Thanks!

Jerri Howard

Wow! I just looked at your website and what a project that was! I can see taking pride in racing a boat you basically built yourself. I'm in the middle of a project similar to that one, but not quite as drastic.

I have a question, what kind of paint did they use on the hull? Did they paint it themselves?
