from my perspective XXX broke half way between the bridges, right in front of me, there was an o.l. in the lead and it looked like jet-set could possibly catch him but could not tell, we were approx 4 miles from the T.Z. bridge.. all in all there wasn't the mad rush to the T.Z. I was expecting, only a couple of boats..

We were at the Liberty Landing Marina...... Jet Set left after all other boats were on plane and about 5 miles north..... yet Jet Set was officially the first boat to the bridge.........

According to our helicopter camera crew.... Jet Set passed all of the boats....slowed deliberately and fell back into the pack...then nailed it to finish first at the bridge.

My take is that the gap is narrowing but Jet Set is still king....

One more thing...the "OL NAVY" was very impressive...... about 20 of them lined up in a row at the dock with every color scheme imaginable.

P.S. I smelled significant amounts of fuel (not gasoline) in the pits.

Reggie never showed, but one of his top racing team drivers, Joe Sgro, was in a brand new canopied OL as a "guest throttleman"....... This hardware is getting to the point where you will definitely need "pros" in the cockpit.
