Way to go Zipp. Good luck in Ohio
Thats Right !!!
After Winning their class running a full sixteen laps Zipp Express dropped the hammers and ran another four laps to take the overall win at the SBI Races in Washington NC. Not bad for a 36ft cat with 500 efi's.
Special thanks to Reggie and the gang who opened up their facilities to service the Zipp Express raceboat. Thats what true competitors do...Help each other out. And as a fan those are the stories I want to hear about. I have a newfound respect for the Fountain Team.

Did they pass Bandit?
Way to go guys! It was great meeting you at Snookie's on Sunday.
(Running shots will be posted as soon as I get them developed and scanned.)
Huh, That's funny, I was there and saw the trophy being handed to Muscle, Maximus do you know something I dont, or are you trying to make a point...I am confused...
hard to follow but you would have seen Zipp be the first to cross the finish line after twenty laps. Zipps class was a 16 lap race. However, they were having so much fun and felt like they had a shot at running with the Super v's in the 20 lap race. (Supercats out with mech issues) they went for it and ran the last four laps wide open with the bad boys of offshore, and brought home the "unofficial" overall win. So you are correct Boat girl Muscle got the trophy Zipp has the PRIDE!!!
Great Pictures Marine Machine Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
By the way can I get some of the "new" little stickers for the sides of my Shifters. Send them to Jay.
