Kerry Goes Southern Style Drag Racing
Great racing yesterday & today.
I got dusted on my single pipe in the last two days by John Abbott & Kerry.
The Riva Hot Lap Challange was won by Kahill 2nd to Stan Hightower, and third by my buddy Duke and Mike from From Titusville.
Congraulations to Susan Anderson for your unbelievable time on the Hot Lap. It was great to party with you and Don all weekend.
Great drag racing and rough water racing all weekend.
Ben and Kerry made the finals.
What great racing.

Glad you guys (and gals) had a good time.
I guarantee I will be there next year Mark.
I want to hear more about the drag racing, but not on the forum. I am afraid all the keyboard spectators and haters will distort the facts and start a bunch of un-necessary shat.
Call me when you get a chance my Brother.

My take on the Florida events
Had a good time guys! Nice meeting everyone.
Earlier in the day I, Kerry and Ben were doing some roll on racing while Kerry was doing some tuning. All 3 skis were pretty evenly matched with Ben inching on me a few times with his 800 grate I should have known better haha. I was locked down on a 1200 grate as everyone else. It felt good to be running with Kerry until we learned he was 300-400rpm down. He finally found his problem was a cracked head and changed it with unmatched 1200 head just so he could compete in the drag race.
In the drag races, Between me and John Abbott, I came unhooked on the starting line and thought it was over, but was able to run him down at the end and cross the finish line first only to discover I went on the wrong side of the bouy and was disqualified. John tried to give the win to me but the officials would not let him. The bouys were so hard to see when the water was that rough.
April Hibdon's single pipe against Ben Herman was real close run. Ben got the holeshot and April's bounced on the start but they said it was a close finish with Ben ahead.
Ben out ran Kane Kaheel's(misspelled ??) riva stage 3 rxp. That was a good race.
It came down to Ben and Kerry at the final round. Kerry looked to be ahead from start to finish, at the end they encountered some very rough water 3-4 feet from a large boat that had passed a minute earlier. The waves hit Kerry first and then Ben on the inside lane. Everyone thought Kerry was the winner until the official said he crossed on the wrong side of the bouy and was disqualified. Luckily no one got hurt, as this was some serious waves they went threw.

I know there were some other good races, anyone care to post? I heard Mtrager beat almost everyone....
Have to hand it to Ben Herman though he really stepped his boat up, he's one to look out for sure.
Stan's ski was down so he wasn't able to ride it in the bouy course so I offered up my ski. Without ever riding it before he got right on it and put 3 seconds on everyone else and was only beat out by a tenth of a second by Kane. Way to go Stan...simply amazing

Great to see all of you guys.
Ron called the racing dead on.
Psyco Rxp had the fastest Rxp. Good to see you again Jason.
Who was the guy on the Honda ? Very quick.
Who did Rxp Stan race on the Rxt. Rxt looked really fast?
All of thease skis are fast. April and Ben looked like less than a half of ski.
Gpr pittman and Gpr114 and duke and I were at the finish line and Kerry and Bens run should have never been started. There were huge waves rolling in on thease guys. It was violent.
Thank you to all that I got to rock with and party with this weekend.

no one had a radar gun at this event. It was all about the drag race and bouy hot lap this time.
Would not have been many places to do a top speed run - it was rough as hell.
