May we all take a moment today to remember Tom Gentry.
It's been over 11 years since his Key West crash and 7 years ago today since he passed away.
Tom Gentry was a legend offshore powerboat racer who set several world records before a crash at the 1994 Key West World Offshore Championship that left him hospitalized and in a coma for 4 years. Just a month before the crash, Gentry, who already owned the transatlantic speed record, captured a new world record, reaching an average speed of 157.4 mph.
Tom Gentry died @ age 67 in Honolulu, Jan. 15, 1998 of respiratory failure.
May God bless him and his family...
