As Rick said. We broke the drive indicator cable and I didn't know what it was at first. The drive didn't seem to be responding so we pulled in to be sure we didn't lose a trim cylinder. After we saw what it was we went back out for the show and broke out four times. The boat really flys with the fresh Crockett 525s.

Thank everyone who made this event happen and also a special thanks to Ed and Julie for you help storing our equipment during the week, It was nice to be able to leave and know everything was in good hands.


Also, is their anywhere we can see out points accumulation
toward the High Points Championship, and Geico points?

After leading the majority of the race until the freighter put us in a holding pattern, My big ass flew into the dash and broke the ignition keys of in the dash ( of course in the off position) it took me a minute to jam my finger nail in there to get the boat to start again...... By the end we almost ran down octain which was almost a lap ahead........Great battling once again......Thanks to a great knonrad drives and a wicked set of scorpion racing engines.....Brian always has a tight hand on the throttles and works his ass off to keep that boat in contention and i really appreciaate him giving me the oppertunity to drive that awsome boat....

I broke out trying to catch back up to everybody when I stopped for the Freighter. The pace boat came out and I came off plane and was leading at that point and everybody else drove by me and the pace boat. Then the pace boat took off to catch everybody so I did the same thing at 77 MPH with the 7MPH current. Chris you should have stopped by the boat I would have given you one of our new T-Shirts. Tyler.

Tlyer I was in Turn 4 with NBC. You guys were haulin the mail and the boat looked great. NBC taped your race and then had to leave. I was interviewed and mentioned your boat, Konrad Fountain of youth and Simmions racing. We will have to see what is left once it airs. They are doing a overview on Michigan for one of the news mags. When I find out more I will let you know.Konrad Dountain had the feild covered before the Freighter with Simmions coming on strong. There sure was some good racing,

IMHO that freighter screwed things up big time. Can some explain what the rules are, none of us watching had a clue how it was supposed to work. Also how many laps were run before the race was stopped/or slowed and how many laps followed.

Tyler,

I was looking for you, man. I stopped by Louie and he took me to introduce you but would not find you. That's ok, I can always meet you other time, buddy. Keep in touch, Tyler

Chris

P.S. Hold your new tshirt for me!

We were watching with Donna and Ian when that happened. Ian thought maybe when you hit hard you pulled the lanyard, (he's done that before). Breaking the keys off is a better story for the future.There were some wicked holes in the water there after the freighter went by.
