Thank you to all the Board members and Members of the Hall of Fame.
I am truly honored.
I must say it is an advantage to be inducted some 10 years after my last competition. I have had much time to reflect on nearly 30 years of racing.
Even today, I have flashbacks into my past and vividly remember certain race days and the people I have met. I have no idea what triggers it.
Sometimes I will keep my thought for several minutes and wish I could tell somebody the stories, too; which brings me to today.
I hope you’ll indulge me for a few minutes while I highlight my memories. I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy it. We’ll go back in time about 40 years.
I was 14 years old. Two of my best friends had snowmobiles, one an Evinrude and the other a Botel. They took me riding and I fell in love with it. I could only afford a couple of hundred bucks at the time, and I found a used 68 SkiDoo Olympic 10 Horse. It was a basket case. The hood was disconnected from the chassis, the seat was loose and it had no key. I brought it home and proceeded to unload it in my parent’s driveway.

GALWAY — Even when he isn’t out riding, Jeff Kozlowski’s collection of 10 vintage snowmobiles keeps him interested in the hobby at all times of year.
The Faber Road resident has a handful of Bombardier Ski-Doo machines from the early 1960s, one with wooden skis, and his pride and joy is a series of three King Kat racing models from 1971.
Kozlowski’s basement is a mini-museum that includes a variety of accessories, paintings and memorabilia that captures a half-century of snowmobile improvements.
“I’m always looking for parts and sleds — all makes, models and years,” he said.
His enthusiasm took hold at a young age, instilled in him by his father, Robert Sr., who used to race. Now, Kozlowski is passing his love for the sport on to his own son, 8-year-old Justin.
