OK, got a problem with the rules:
   Jet-berk jc with diverter, ride plate, loader and shoe--CHECK
   21' Eliminator day cruiser, (heavy old pig) BBC, Full roller motor, no reverse, ~2800 lbs--CHECK
   220 lb driver---This is the problem- Lost ~70 lbs since Feb, '12 now 217  :thumbup: and NOT GOIN BACK!!!

3 pounds under the weight limit, I guess I'll bring your cooler to the dam and back and have a cold beer ready for ya when ya finally get to the finish line :o

Well, if you beat the pink Ultra, you will be subject to a protest because you must have a 600ci motor.

I'll pay the $250 and have to pull the heads on your boat and blow down that motor on the water to verify all is legal and if all goes well the prize is a roadraper.

The boat has been in training the last few nights. I wheeled the garage tv out into the boats circus tent and replay a bunch of videos of brad running comp jet racing.

By day, its listening to eye of the tiger all day on repeat while I'm at work.

The young bull said, let's run down and have a beer. The old bull said, let's float down and drink the case

Should be a fun and relaxing trip, but mines gonna gave to do 5200rpm all day to make up for the trips I didn't get to go on this year. Only got out 7 times.

As for the 21' championship looks like its down to me and whiteboy in the lineup. Buckskin to the launch ramp at Echo.

From a ~10 mile enduro to an 1/8th mi sprint??

Ralph has the right Idea:

The young bull said, let's run down and have a beer. The old bull said, let's float down and drink the case

14 miles of river to float :thumbup:

It'll be a gang race. The likes of which Parker has never seen.

Sounds like its gonna be a line of boats and rooster tails going down river I like the idea of doing it around dusk I watched a few guys race the buckskin ecolodge strip Friday and Saturday night looked cool and sounded crazy

No 5150, all Big Johnson has to do is put super in and will get rid of the pinging.
And don't forget Steve will be there also with his Carrera so isn't that 5 of us going down river with roosters
Shooting?
