    F 20 was Dub Parker's number, but this was the Dub Parker memorial race after Dub had died in a plane crash the year before. I don't remember how his boat got there, maybe it was sold, but it looks like Jeff Hutchens driving it.

    I think you are right Ralph about Jeff driving it. I was wondering myself about that. Since I never made any contact sheets of the film from this race, I can't tell what is on the frames until I scan them. That one was a surprise, and one of the reasons I posted it is because I didn't know why the F 20 was in the field. Sadly Jeff is no longer with us either so we can't ask him.

    F-20 was still Dubs boat. Billie Parker and my father-law Bill Hosler wanted to run Dubs boat at his memorial race in his honor, but two days before the race Bill threw his back out and wasn't able to drive so they let me run for him . Jeff Hutchins was driving for Phil Wagner that weekend. You can always tell when Jeff drives, he had the black wetsuit on. Also a Trevor Billiter story: Roy Miner made a few props for us to try the week before the race. So we tested the props and both agreed the best prop happen to be the same one, which was odd being he ran 500h an I ran formula 350. Roy wouldn't sell it to us. He said just share it. So we did and Trevor won 500h for his first national win . Tim

    Thanks for telling how it went Tim. Everybody was proud of Trevor that day. I hope you can add more stories about your racing down there. You guys were always high point in region 5 because you ran so many races. Two sanctioned races in one weekend sometimes. But you did have very many good drivers. We always had fun racing at Lakeland, but it was too far for us to make the Grapefruit circuit. Have many good friends from there. Lots of the best in the nation came out of Region 5. Give us some more stories Tim.

    A few more pictures from Lake Parker.

    I sometimes slowed the shutter to get the illusion of speed when panning. I tried this on the photo of V100, but the driver was out of focus. I decided to include it because the bow handle and a couple of feet of the nose are in focus. It shows how shallow the depth of field is with a long lens focused close.
