Havasu Classic 1984

My friend Rick Barron brought in an old newspaper from Havasu with coverage from the Havasu Classic in 1984. It turns out that Rick was very competitive back then with his Mercury powered Sleekcraft. Rick placed a respectable 12th place in a field of 38 Mod VP boats. In that race Al Stoker won first place, followed by Lyn Foster, Bob Kitchens and Ted Bravo in that order.

I scanned in some pictures of Rick and his boat, I found it really interesting that Rick raced in 1984 and again in a COR boat in 2015, and another Sleek powered by a Merc. Also interesting is the second place Sleek craft driven by Lyn Foster had number 128 on it...who says history doesn't repeat itself?
