Nov. 4th, IHBA World
Finals, Chandler, AZ *This race had been scheduled for the weekend
of Oct. 19th-22nd but after qualifying, Sunday's eliminations were
rained out. So we came back two weeks later to finish the
eliminations on Saturday 11/4. This was our best performance of the
year. 14 boats started in our class and we went 4 tough rounds
against some very tough competitors to not only win the race but
also to wrap up the points championship. We also set a new IHBA
record of 133 MPH. It was a great way to finish the IHBA season.
Nov.5th NJBA Finals at
Lake Ming, Bakersfield, CA. *We drove all night after the IHBA
awards ceremony to Bakersfield for this finals race. Since there was
another Pro Gas Jet that had entered in our class, we had to race
him instead of getting bumped up to UFJ. We won that race with a
respectable ET of 7.78 at 131 mph. We also ended up in 2nd place for
the points championship in the UFJ class. That's it, this season is
over. It's been a lot of fun.
Winner of the 2000
IHBA Pro Competition Eliminator High Points Championship!
