Cooper team can't figure out problem

Jimmy King brought the U-3 Hoss Mortgage Investors Too into the dock after the boat's manifold pressure dropped quickly after a test run.

A reporter looked at team owner Ed Cooper, put his arms out wide and shrugged. Cooper responded "That's exactly it."

"Something quit," he said. "this thing is like a quiz."

Cooper said computer readouts on board said something is wrong. But the team can't find the problem. Still, Cooper didn't seem quite so concerned, as he was eating ice cream in the cockpit.
