He asked me if I would build him an engine for the following year for the New York State Championship in Boonville. At the time he was racing Ski-Doo's for Max Collin. I agreed and looked forward to working with Fay again. I stroked a 240cc single engine Rotax for him. He ran it in the 300cc class and won the New York State Championship that year."
