Congrats to Eddie Powell for the first 200 MPH sidecar run at Maxton!!! After a few 199 passes I knew he would soon be there.

Good Job Eddie!!!

On 9-27-08 we lost a great friend and fellow racer, he was the BEST, he helped anyone with anything at anytime.  His name is Dave Owen and he will be missed by all that knew him and I am glad to have met him.  Get well Donna!

Seeing him at Bonneville during 2008 Speedweek was the tops, Dave was in awe of the salt and as usual was there helping out anyone who asked..simply put we lost a great man who will be missed by all.

Fantastic job Eddie.  It worked out well.  You had a 199 party Saturday night and I'm sure the 200 celebration is still going on.  You are proof that hard work pays off.  Well deserved.

Some people might be disappointed at going 199.975 and being that close to the big 2, but being a champion is celebrating every step, and you are a true champ. Pretty good for a 63 yr old man?
