Love the old pics guys....keep them coming.......I have to ask ....where in Freeport were the dry/wet pits and where did the Freeport race actually run to......? Is it me or was racing much more attainable (for lack of a better word) to the averge enthusiast then it is today. Seems like today you need to be a zillionaire to even think about it.........

Mark,

I think my father had the same ash tray on his boat that you had on your dash. Wasn't that the one that was filled with sand or something so it did'nt move around.

Race Headquarters, wasn't that Bob S. company?
