TKO stands for Thompson - Kennedy - Osinga. Three families partnered up where the winning tradition runs deep. The S-35 owned by Ron and Sandy Thompson of Baltimore, Maryland is driven and campaigned by Kyle and Austin Hayes out of Waterford, Michigan. This brother duo along with the tremendous help of their parents David and Patricia Hayes, brother Bobby Kennedy, their Uncle George Kennedy Jr. and Cousin Brandon Kennedy, started racing in 2023 where they were crowned MPR Rookie's of the year and had much success on the course for their very first year. These two young men have a deep pool of knowledge of boat racing to turn to dating back to when their Kennedy family bought their first hydroplane in 1971.
