What's with the Texmo Moth? Did it ever race on the unlimited circuit?

More details...... Billy Seebold, among other things, is the greatest powerboat racer in history......period. With over 1000 wins to his credit...(remember when Reggie celebrated number 100 a few years back ?).....

Buck Thornton...... a Champion in his own right and probably one of the only guys they could find to drive this monster...... I tested with three of those engines on a Shadow Cat at Oshkosh...... wildest ride I ever had that didn't end upside down.

Jerry...... great driver...but his gifts are thinking outside the box, extraordinary intelligence..... and a tremendous depth of knowledge and experience. He is, without a doubt, the top crew chief/team manager in boat racing over the past 20 years.

That's neat stuff but I don't remember ever seeing anything about an outboard powered unlimited. and I've been going to thunderboat races since 1970, mostly on the Detroit river. What year was this? How fast did it go?

Mr Gilbreath sure brings out a lot of controversy...... let's keep this thread towards the man himself. We can keep certain things on the other thread

Thumbs up

I've raced for (5) years and won my share of races / titles. I get much of my information from being involved directly in the sport of offshore powerboat racing and I haven't quit yet! BH
