I think it might be the # of boats that show up to a race. And with all the politics that comes with SBI. APBA has been around for ever, so they are looked at as the major league. When ever the "show" comes to town it seems like you get more for your money with APBA. (from a fans point of view) But I sure miss the MUSCLE team They are a show in a show The only shame is that APBA don't come to the towns that they say they are Hopefully they have those problems behind them now, time will tell. Funny how fast Reggie is ready to jump ship from SBI back to the major leagues if Mike A was gone? Thats what he said in his interview with powerboat mag. I guess he thinks the only way he can afford to have his boats in powerboat mag anymore is the free APBA race photos. I would rather see SBI coverage than The Formula One stuff they waste (IMHO) 5 pages on. I talked with Brett Becker about this at the Ft. Lauderdale boat show last year and he seems to think there is a big following in the F1 series. But what do I know I think outboreds belong on bass boats. And this coming from a Harley fan. Sometimes I think it is more important to get there in STYLE than get there first. And I will be the first one to say how fast outboreds and jap bikes are, but if I had to explain you wouldn't understand!
