what time did not see anything about it??
In the afternoons..... that will be determined by CBS Sports.
The series of shows will air starting in Oct.
It looks like we're FINALLY going to get it in our living rooms. I really hope every race team with the ability to compete in SBI takes advantage of this. This could bring some big sponsors, that could expand the fields far faster than at the current rate. Big purses, big crowds, big teams, BIG fun!
Thats alsome I can't wait for this!!!!!!
When SBI posts the TV schedule I'm going to have cards made and give them out at the lakes and marinas and everywhere else I go.
This is really awesome and anything that promotes this sport that we all love is great!
On a side not (and not a bash by any means)...
Is this quote accurate? With racing over seas and other racing organizations....
Super Boat International is the only official National and International sanctioning body for offshore powerboat racing in the world.
