    Default Havasu 1969: Scotti Wins!

    As we approach Thanksgiving, I think of Havasu. 1966--1979 I think I ate Thanksgiving at Havasu...

    Default havasu 1969 scotti wins

    Ron thanks for posting this. I was 10 years old but remember this omc win.8th on the sheet # 10 was Mike Quayle.I was a fan of Mr. Quayle when he ran a checkmate v bottom with a mod evinrude x115,that thing would haul. He brought his dog with him to the races a black german shepard that would stand on the dock & bark at Mr. Quayle when he raced by.( I was a big fan of the dog too.) Best race I ever saw Mr. Q must of had a falling out with omc & he showed up with a orange tunnel with a merc 6 cly(.I was to young to know boats & horse powers.)Put there was a up start driver there with a v- bottom checkmate & a stock 6 cyl merc.He steped up to Mr.Q class & beat him on the clock start & was on the inside .Mr. Q did every thing to try & get around the up start driver but lost to him by a nose.I remember Mr. Q shanking his hand after the race he was such a class act. The up start driver became my hero & was the best driver I ever saw.His name was Kenny Stevenson. I would love to hear the story of Mr. Quayle switching to merc from omc if someone knows it.( ps. I see you guys got paid better in 1969 than we do now.)
