Well it won’t be long and Santa will be dropping down the chimney. Mike Grendell wants a new style blower for his GP while it looks like Brandon’s going to need a new skid fin for his. The Steeler team needs everything from a new GP boat to all the goodies that makes it go. As you’ve seen on Facebook, Marc and Ghislain are having grand old times in retirement. If I were a betting man I’d bet you we will see Ghislain in some kind of race boat next season. Now the question is, can Marc stay out of a boat for long? While Mathieu Dauost is waiting for his new sponson, Martin is hoping Santa will bring him a new style blower too. I don’t know why though, he already set the fastest speed in Valleyfield this past year. You know, maybe Santa will bring him some new glasses and a GPS system for his “Coppertone: GP”!!! Sorry Martin, but you know me, I had to add that in, Ha! Ha! All Eric Langevin needs from Santa is some “GOOD LUCK”. Poor Eric has had the worst luck this past year. I think Santa was so good to Patrick last year, he’s got almost everything he needs to win the Championship. Oops! I almost forgot, he does need a trailer to get to the races!!! Hopefully Paul will finally finish it, although Michel is still wondering where they’re going to park it!! Our new GP owner Randy English has a direct line to the North Pole, as he needs sooooo much stuff to get to our first race. If you leave it up to Jon Staudacher, Randy’s new GP boat will be delivered by the end of January. A little rumor here has Randy putting Andrew Tate in the Staudacher and Tom Thompson in the GP-101. I think this way Tommy will be off restriction by Valleyfield. Ken Brodie already got his new blower and reports he’s ready to race. Santa’s going south to Phoenix and will be painting Dennis and Marty’s GP while everything seems to be quiet around Tom Pakradooni’s GP-88. I know Milton and Charley want a lot of goodies so they can finish their new boat.
This past weekend a lot of us traveled to the Performance Racing Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana to see all the new engine goodies for 2015 and beyond. Bert “finally” got yours truly to buy him a new driver’s suit. Hell it’s only been 4 years since we changed the Crush name to Steeler. After St. Felicien, the suit really got torn up and the whole team shamed me into buying a new one. As usual Mike, Big Mike, Sam and Joe were checking out all the new performance items along with Randy English and John Lohone his engine mechanic.
Well its off to do some Christmas shopping so I’ll say to everyone have a Merry Christmas and a great Happy New Year!!!
See you all in 2015!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
