    Default look out 120s

    gotta say for us 120s to look out ,,,,,

    the big guns have been broken out,,,,,,,,
    heard the word that tim seebold is coming to mix it up with us
    we havent had tim here in 120 since 2005 at port neches

    also glynns new boat wont be repaired in time
    so he is breaking out his brand new seebold

    and along with the champ high points leaders
    of chris shepard,kevin ladd,michael schubert and howie nichols

    tim fry and 2 of our guys from lubbock
    along with who we already know is coming

    think this will be the hardest hitting race of the yr

    sounds like things are coming together for this maiden voyage in Orange, Texas, with the tunnel boat guys and the famous, (or infamous), Tri-Hull's! Jan and I will be there to provide our input to the weekend. We should be on site late Friday.

    This will be Jan's first time in Texas for one of John's races. It is a joy to hang out down there...we are going to have a good ole' time!

    Safe Travel to all!

    Thanks, John, for the thoughts. Lots of good memories down there in Texas, and I have seen some great racing in all 3 classes over the past 3 - 4 year...and I have developed that special appetite for those crazy guys in the Tri-Hulls! Just love it!

    Have some good tough memories, too, of my good friend Mr. Nunez! What a fun guy he was and, man, did we pack the house at his funeral down there. Remember that, Curtis!? We had some of the most honest and frank conversations about life and family as he struggled to keep life going.

    So, see you all down there for another chapter of tunnel boat racing!

    Default prayer request...and

    Hi Laurie and Jan,
    This may be off topic, and I don't know you, but hope to meet you in Orange. DKL's (Doug) wife is in the hospital...prayer works and is stronger where two or more bind together.

    And, what's a guy got to do to sit in on your words when you speak before the race? I don't wanna miss a Sunday service--even a short one. I'd like to be there. And welcome to Texas, Jan!

    Thanks,
    Nate

    Hey, Nate! Thanks for asking about the service. We will find a good place somewhere in the pits to have the chapel service. John Schubert will have his driver's meeting either right before or right after the chapel on Sunday, most likely. I will post notices around the pits on Saturday giving the location and time after I get both approved by John Schubert.

    I have been doing this chaplaincy for 13 years with tunnel boat racers around the US, Canada and Mexico. Usually my lovely wife, Jan, will be there, as well. I think you will enjoy the time we have together as a racing community the day of the final events. These boat racers are all tops in my book!
