Neil's Bass Boat

Another time, he ran an ASA race at Bristol, and a group of us, officials and drivers, were sitting around having a couple of cold ones together.  Neil casually mentioned that he had to get going because he wanted to go fishing the next day.  He mentioned his bass boat, and told us how big an outboard it had on it.

I asked him why he needed that much horsepower to go fishing.

He answered, "John, when you hook a bass at 90 miles an hour
it takes the fight right out of him."  as told unanimously


Thanks to Patty Kay from www.insiderracingnews.com for reminding me of just how funny Neil Bonnet was.
