Todd invited me to drive his boat for his friend Boomer Hukari, owner of Tahoe Powerboat Company. I met Boomer at the race site in Pittsburg California and immediately became friends. We won the race and qualified the boat for APBA's championship race.  We later raced together in Orange Beach, Alabama taking second in both attempts. The following week we traveled to Key West and competed again.
