    I've Got To Brag a Little

    My 16 year old step son Gabriel entered his first Supercourse race yesterday. He raced in beginner stock class, but his moto included novice stock, novice women's open, amatuer n/a stock, and amatuer masters open. His boat was completely stock and not running as well as it should (over propped). He won his class (okay he was the only one in his class), but he got 3rd overall out of 17 skis in the moto. He almost took Larry Ham down for second place. A great result for his first race ever. I am very proud of him.

    That's awesome. When I race Novice Stock at supercourse nationals the first moto I first in my class and was 3rd out of 22 riding. 2nd moto I started 4th overall fell off dropped to last then within the 30mins of racing and not gettin the extra lap because of the weather I finished 9th overall and 3rd in my class. Not bad after dropping to last if i do say so my self.

    I wish your son the best of luck out there and hope to see him in the podium at nationals. Maybe I'll get into the podium in Pro-am Stock this year.

    Well, we were using a depitched 14/19 which worked well last year. But something happened to it and we were banging the rev limiter the day before the races. The only other prop we had was a 14/19 which dropped the rpm to 7700. I have two tweaked stock props to try now, but they didn't arrive in time to use them at the races.
