    Biggest set of BALLS AWARD

    Goes to Outlaw Class Boat driver Scott Jordon,

    Went through a field of Outlaw Boats in Mt. Pleasant this week end on Saturday with NO SKEG and finished second. Thats correct your reading this right NO SKEG, broke 100 feet in the FIRST pass.

    Most can imagine , driving a bass boat back to the dock at 10 MPH after this happens , Scott ran well over 100 MPH driving an Allison Outlaw boat and beat 3 out of the 4 boats entered...

    We changed gearcase on Sat. night and he went on to win the over all class winning Sunday..

    GREAT job of driving Scott !!!!!!


    GREAT RACE DSRA GUYS !!
    Jay and Cathy

    Congrats to Scott!! Bet he had quick hands on the wheel correcting the slightest change without a skeg at 100mph! How quick do you think it could have gotten away from the average driver? Tell him I said Hi when you see him!

    That is insane!! Can’t believe DSRA would let him race without a skeg for safety reasons. That is worse then not wearing a helmet or a pfd. He could have killed himself and maybe someone else.

    ^Good point^ I guess DSRA left it in the hands of the drivers to decide on their safety.

    Just a wild guess, but I'd imagine that the driver had no idea what was wrong until they put the boat on the trailer. He was just driving. It's not like they pull the boat out of the water after every pass...and the short throw trim rams they use won't allow the motor to be trimmed up enough while in the water to inspect. He probably just knew the boat was a handful, which could have been one of several things.

    The driver knew of the skeg missing when I told him when he was removed from the water AFTER the Saturday session....

    GUEEEES LOUIEEEESSS...Give Scott a little credit his is a great driver but if he would have known what the issue was he would have came in.

    BTW: also beat 3 of the 4 boats entered in the class on the rub rail and without a skeg..

    Thanks h20skiier30 glad somebody understood......

    Now how in the world is anyone gonna KNOW exactly whats wrong until the boat was hauled up on the trailor ???? At 100 feet out the boat made a sudden move, could have been prop, trim, etc...


    Stick to cleaning them injectors Rich and stop worrying and second guessing, it'll make you have wrinkles.. :)

    Jay, no worries or too many wrinkles here at least not yet, all is good. My point is…you build motors and I know you would never let one leave your shop knowing that something wasn’t quite right. Scott knew something was wrong and he jeopardized every ones safety. For a prize of few hundred bucks and some pride its just not worth it. D. E. The Intimidator was an exceptional driver and thought he was invincible. But damn it, if he felt a tire going down he went on into the pits and got it changed. BTW, Jason’s PM keihins are on their way and I know for sure they were done right.

    The ONLY reason Earnhardt would have had the tire changed is because he knew he couldn't win the race on a flat tire. Let's not get carried away. He died trying to block others from passing in an unsafe way. Let's not use a terrible analogy to try and make a point. Earnhardt would have done EXACTLY what Jordan did. If he felt he could still win, he would have stayed out. No doubt about that.

    Not much different then what Scott did...now is it?

    This thread should have been titled The Darwin Award goes out to...
    No one was hurt this time but I bet if he hood it on the last pass you all would be singing a different tune.

    It's completely different from what Scott did. Not one single person WHO WAS ACTUALLY THERE ever thought Scott was a danger to anyone out there. Never came close to getting out of his lane. Little bit of a wild ride? Heck yes. Totally out of control and dangerous? Not by any stretch of the imagination. Direct quote from Marty Alexie (who was there and races himself) and saw it himself:

    "I was there. Was the boat loose? "yes". Out of control "no".
    I saw people get black flaged, but at no time I, other racers or the officales
    thought the skeg was missing. He made 3 passes in his own lane."

    There u go again with that TX talk…lol
    For everyone’s satisfaction I admit that I was wrong by saying that Scott made a bonehead decision.
    Those who raced against him and many who were there watching know different. Nuf said!

    Just wondering WHY you did NOT choose to believe ME and had to hear it from someone else ???????

    Ask the folks you work for, if I say it you can go to the bank with it , I'm not prone to lie or imbellish....
