Don't those "kneel downs" have their own classes and series with the APBA?
Why would Offshore include these boats?
Yes they do have their own class. Earlier this year there were over 200 of the little guys running at their Winter Nationals in Ocoee Florida under the flag of USBRA. TheUSBRA is a new club and that was their first race. I do beleive they are sanctioned by the APBA.
They may be running with the big boys to fill in any dead time between races and/or to introduce them to the OS fans. Yoy would have both ends of the spectrum at the race site-The $$$ Offshore class and the out of the garage kneel down.
There were rumors last year that the Unlimited Hydros would be running with the OS guys at St Pete Beach but that never happened.
