    You need to bring one of your boats and run it!!!! If the hydro isn't ready then break out the Allison and get used to seeing the clock!!! We'll see you this weekend

    Love to Rick , BUT I am stumbling over these powerheads and machine work. I'm working 6 days a week 10-12 hours a day just to stay even with them coming in. Had a traffic jam on my dead in street today 2 18 wheelers got jammed up and had to pick a number to drop motors off..

    Have a safe race..

    Wind blew us out on Sunday, Friday T-N-T was great and Saturday qualifying was a little windy but Sunday was horrible.
