Bob Prigmore

"bp" Crew Chief

Bob  assists  Dave  in keeping the motor in top running condition. After each run Bob pulls
the  valve covers and works with Dave to check valve lash adjustments as well as overall
condition  of  the  valve  train  components.  If  carb  jetting  changes are called for, Bob
makes  those changes too. Bob also works with Jim to measure the setup of the boat and
make hardware changes when necessary. Bob is Dave's back up at any race that Dave is
not  able  to  attend.  Bob also  assists Jeff in analyzing the run data as well as being the
chief tow truck driver, getting the boat and driver in and out of the water.
