    Default I Think This IS Bobby Switzer

    I just found this picture. I'm not sure where it came from, but it sure looks like Bobby Switzer in the driver's seat. What do you think?

    Default Super K owned by Fireman Bill Olney of Montebello, California

    This was an "ORANGE" or "ORANGEISH" metal flake 18' Switzer Wing at Parker, probably 1967 or 1968. More wings: http://www.boatracingfacts.com/forum...ighlight=wings

    There were 4 Switzer Wings at the March 2016 Tavares FL Classic Race Boat event. They are ALL expected back there in Tavares March 17-19th. History coming alive!!!!! Diablo-3, Dust-n the Wind, Thunderball, and Red Bird Ted Boyd now owns and runs three Wings and Rich Luhrs runs Dust-n the Wind (w/two S3000's!).

    Jeff Fritz never race at Beloit. I think the D Runabout race, with Keith Stippich and I was 625 points might also be Guntersville.

    Bob admits is it Guntersville.

    I talked to Gerry Hedlund, today, he said Ron and Gerry ran 1-2 at Guntersville. Gerry was also sure that Keith Stippich didn't race DU at Beloit.
