The Winner Is....................

I was standing in the water for this shot. Way too close as he came screaming by. The Grants Pass Boatnik Races are a Memorial Day tradition up here. Small boats, drag boats.

Congratulations to Jeff Lewis of Grants Pass on winning his 9th career Boatnik title. Jeff has been racing for 43 years. He is now the all time leader in Boatnik victories breaking a tie with Don Burnison of Grants Pass. Jeff had wrecked his new boat in practice a few days before the race and pulled his and Don Burnison's old boat "The Geezer Rocket" out of the barn for one more ride.

Re: The Winner Is....................

Nice sharp capture, obviously good panning technique here. The scene is a little CW tilted but forgiveable given all that was going on. I assume this is on the beautiful Rogue River.

Re: The Winner Is....................

I didn't get that close to the racers to get sprayed. Loved standing in a bit of water on a hot day, though. Russ, we always watch the race downstream on the Rogue River at Griffin Park. It's right on a bend so the racers cut right in front of us. Perfect. Great weather and bbque, too!
