I met Rick Blackstock today

Actually he bought my boat. If anyone remembers him, he drove the Brief Encounter Jet car, Top Fuel Slingshot dragster and raced in the truck races in the 70's and 80s's

I remember seeing him race at SIR in the late 70's, he blew the window out of the tower with the jet car when i was there.

He had a stroke a while back and has been doing other things lately. Took my boat to his house and was amazed at all the pictures, Early Unlimited Light Hydroplane races on Lake Sammamish.

Pictures of him and John Force in the early years, Connie Kalitta, Shirly Muldowny, him and Don Garlits at the 92 Nationals. I was amazed.

Hes giving me a 340 sixpack/trans/rearend set up for the scamp.

He also has a early 70s motor home with the HP 413 still in it for sale if anyone is interested, among other things.

Anyone else remember him?
