My Father Raced Boats

I happened upon this article outlining the race boat drivers that were lucky enough to test a uniquely designed outboard racing motor. One of them was my father ( Rich McKinley ):

The lucky seven..Here is the seven drivers that was hand picked by OMC to race the unique designed racing outboard:..Jimbo McConnell , Mike Downard, Rich McKinley, Jonny Sanders, Tom Posey, Barry Woods  and Bobby Witt. This is an incredible letter from Jack Leek at OMC to Jimbo McConnell. Thank you Cathy McConnell

He won the world championship in France one year as well. So when you wonder why I have incorporated racing into my writing as an author; it is in my blood.

Another article showcasing a promotional video from OMC ( Title Drive ) mentions my father ~7 minutes into the video:

Guys, until next time – may you find all the happiness that your life can fit in it’s happy spot – S.D. McKinley
