What a great start to the 2014 ACHA race season. Check out the point standings! Boy, from the first 3 races there seems to be more speed from our guys, closer competition in the heat races, less breakage, and our drivers are being a little more careful in their driving which makes our show that much better. I’ve been kidding Ken Brodie about being on top of the mountain. It’s easier getting to the top than staying on top. Brandon got a break this past weekend in Brockville but let me tell everyone- Between Larry Lauterbach and the Kennedy crew these guys worked their butts off to even get to the race and if anyone deserved to win it was this team.
How bout these young guns out there???? Claude Tremblay has that GP-9 boat hauling’ ass and Mathieu has done a great job putting it around the racecourse. Martin in his Coppertone GP has stepped it up also and he too will be a force to be reckoned with!! From all reports I’ve heard Patrick will have his brand new Auld GP in Valleyfield. Also on hand all the way up from “Down home in Alabama” will be Milt Wiggins. The fans really like Milt’s boat from last year but this year Jimmy King will be Milt’s driver. I’m sure many Jimmy King fans will like to hear that. I figure there should be 12/13 GPs in Valleyfield, which translate to another great show for all our GP race fans.
Now don’t forget all you race fans, most of our GP teams want you to come by, meet the drivers and in some cases get to sit in the boats so your parents can take pictures. Our “Steeler” team is no exception and we invite everyone to stop by, say hello, meet Bert, and have the kids have their picture taken sitting in the cockpit. Thursday usually is the better day for this when it’s a little quieter in the pits. Friday we will be starting qualifications. Well I wish all our Teams good luck this coming weekend. Continued safe racing,
