    NATIONAL CHAMPIONS - Budweiser Select Offshore Team Brings
    Home Eighth Consecutive National Title

    • Took over first place on lap seven

    Dave Scott – Owner/Driver – Budweiser Select 44’ Extreme Boat

    “I feel great. It doesn’t get any better than this. This is a beautiful area and the Budweiser Select Team
    did an amazing job. It was a good, tough race. We were behind after the first six laps just trying to find a
    way to get around the leader. We’d go inside then outside, just trying to do everything we could to take
    the lead. The lead boat got into some traffic and we made the right cut to stay clear of it, came around the
    corner and Johnny did the rest.”

    “We wanted to get to the inside and I went in a little more aggressively than maybe I should have. We
    had good speed in the corner and then I felt the boat about to hook. Johnny grabbed the throttles, I
    countered with the rudder and the boat gathered back up and took off again. If you’re going to win a race
    like this, you’re going to get into some tough situations, that’s all there is to it. If you don’t want to win,
    then you just lay back, and we were definitely not doing that. So it was one of those things we had to try.
    This was definitely a team effort – Johnny did awesome and I’m so proud to be here.”

    “The crew did an amazing job with the boat. The crew worked into the late hours of the evening on it
    because we had some problems yesterday (Saturday). What more can you say – it’s a national title and
    we’re thrilled.”

    “It was really hard trying to judge just how fast we could make those turns, especially the right-hander.
    We were going around it at 150 mph. Judging how fast we could make turns in this boat without crashing
    was the hardest thing for me to do. We were definitely concentrating hard on not making a mistake
    because we were going so fast. The slowest speeds I saw the whole race were on the left-hand turns and
    that was probably 112 or 113 mph.”

    “We began the race on the outside line. We went into the turn side by side with another boat, and
    obviously the inside boat has the advantage and is going to come out of the turn well. We’d pull ahead on
    the straight-aways, but they just weren’t quite long enough to get around and take the lead. We got
    caught up in some traffic and gave Team CRC a pretty good lead, but we were able to reel him back in.
    Once he caught traffic, we were able to take advantage of that.”

    “Everyone worked really hard. We had some problems yesterday (Saturday) we hadn’t anticipated, but
    the team overcame them. It’s great to come out here and run like we did. Dave did an awesome job
    driving. The other teams ran so strong and it was such a competitive race. It was a very intense event.”
