APBA is the only sanctioning body that can deliver for us at this time. As a Florida based team we will miss the Ft Meyers race but not Sarasota. Sarasota has become very difficult do to deal with as a racer. The promoters are so money hungry that the pits are grossly over populated with vendors to the excess that we could not even move our boat on race day. When we checked in at the Hyatt we found out the racer room rate was almost twice the regular cost of a room for the general public. The crane and pit personal were just plain rude also. As a racer it appears Sarasota does not want APBA and in my opinion it really is no loss.
