Eric I have no idea who's fault it is or is not. I have a feeling that Mr Lee was the one that strewed this whole thing up but that is strickly a guess. HOWEVER that being said APBA and Mr Lee owed it to the fans and the racers to make sure that the races happened in Key West THIS YEAR at leaste. APBA and Mr Mills should have made what ever compromises that they had to so that the races were WERE THEY SAID THEY WOULD BE. If that means that APBA has to drop the costs then so be it, if that means that Mr. Mills has to not be involved at all then so be it but this years race should be in Key West. After that if they want to have the races some place else then I have no problem with that. HOWEVER it is also APBA that has a LONG history of dropping race sites for this reason or that and taking off to go some place else or just dropping the race all together. This is done with no consideration to the fans or more important THE RACERS and the racers sponsors. When I raced back a few years ago our sponsors were always small local places, maybe a hotel that offered us a room, a small sports store that offered us a couple bucks or a place to store the boat, but it was all local places and it was ussually only for that one local race. These sponsorships have already been solidified for Key West (because unlike APBA most racers actually plan ahead)and they will have no interest in sponsoring a boat race any place else. So now the racers have to scramble to get new sponsors and that is just not fair to them IMO.Originally posted by Treadwellmotorsports
