Roger Breeland at Smith oil is a great guy. He has helped me get race fuel for some of the high HP offshore boats that we run at our annual Chicago Poker run every summer on lake Michigan. He will always go out of his way for a good cause. Our proceeds went to the Childrens Memorial hospital in Chicago.

The MSSM "Midwest Super Stock Mafia" will be out in full force to attend this event for such a great cause. I know 1st hand that we will have a heavy showing there.

See ya on the 20th.
