    Actually, the Switch Beverage Co./ Sentient Jet Co. finished and won in St. Cloud and Daytona. They came in second in Miami, and second in Washington, NC, along with that speed record. As with any brand new boat, let alone a brand new raceboat, there is a considerable amount of time being spent on on equipment testing, as well as with the team getting to know the new set up, which is still under R & D.

    The boat is fast, and the team has consistently shown they are going to be a force to be reckoned with. Not bad for a couple of Factory 1 guys who moved up this year to the big leagues with the likes of long time racers Muscle, Firewater, Shockwave and Instigator. It's refreshing to see some new blood in that very long time established class.

    You can email the team at [email protected] if you like!

    Thanks for everyone's support. The Fountains are a tough force on the water but we have been working out the gremlins and hope to show that the Extreme can run with the best of them. Curt and John are getting comfortable running with the best of the best and with a little more tuning I feel that we can bring a new level of competition to the Super Vee class.
