Smile Antique Outboard Racing ..<'TK><

I am a member of Antique outboard Motor Club International ... .We have just returned from Sturgis, MO. For the 7th annual 3 HP race at Gruender Lake ...Half way between St. Louis and Kanas City . For antique Outboards ... Our entry this year was a 1945 ... 3.2 HP Western Auto Wizard which was made by Carl Kiekhaefer (Mercury).

And Happy to say we swept the field for the second year in a row ... Stock and Modified .. My cohort in crime is Sam Wearly who is a retired tunnel boat racer and from the same stable as his Dad Paul Wearly who was a renowned Racer from the 30's and 40's who died last year at the age of 94.

Sam is the driver do to that fact he ways a few less pounds Than I do ... (50 to be exact ) .... But we have a great time spending time with fellow old outboarders ... Now our next year quest is in front of us ... We are thinking super charger !!!! ... <'TK><

That's pretty cool TK. I would assume everyone puts the lightest driver in the boats they can come up with. How fast does a 3 hp outboard go?
