My good friend Art Lilly invited me to drive ROCK SOLID at Lake Erie in 1992. It was a US OFFSHORE race and KILO speed run event. There were a number of boats present, including FRANKS MARINE, SHOCKWAVE, and FEVER. They were all teasing Lilly because he would not run his boat in the time trials and his driver had not yet arrived. A few boats ran 90 mph in the speed runs. Lilly knew his boat only ran 85 mph. It ran 85 all day long in just about any conditions, no matter how rough. 

1st Place Erie

Art was very successful in that 10 Meter Fountain and I was very happy to have won a race with my good buddy. After all, I had never driven that boat before that day.
