Tanglewood Performance Marine decided to go racing in 1991. Joe, his son Joey, and his wife Lori began there offshore racing team and called it " Crazy Rythm Racing". They used a 28' Magnum which they rigged and raced in the A-Class Offshore racing. A lot of work went into changing it over to a safe, fast, top contending A.P.B.A. race boat. Well we think it was well worth it. You see, we got that Magnum to go close to 90 MPH and that made us the fastest 28, Magnum Maltase racing in the 90's 2000 and 2002, 2nd place in Great Lakes Silver Cup Series, Outlaw "B" class In February 2002, Joe Turek, Sr. passed away.
