    Dave Scott – Owner/Driver – Budweiser Select Offshore Team
    “This is what it’s all about… You have to take it one day at a time down here. It’s a race of attrition – you still have to push the equipment, but you have to do your best to save it at the same time. When you have three races, anything can happen, as we’ve seen in years past. But Key West has been good to us. We have won the world championship every year we’ve come to Key West. This year everything went as good as it could possibly go. I couldn’t be happier with winning all three races and lapping everyone in the process. The crew did a fantastic job with the boat all week. We set a pace and ran our own race. That was the key…”

    “We changed out both motors on Wednesday after blowing an engine in the race that day. We had originally planned to bring an extra set to run on Sunday, but had to change our game plan a bit. It worked out for us though, because the engines we put in lasted through Friday and Sunday’s races with no issues. That’s where the crew comes in. They are without a doubt the best. They are the top of the food chain when it comes to offshore racing and maintaining a boat. They knew what they had to do and did it.”

    “It felt great to bring home this title, especially in the way we were able to do it. It’s great to see all our hard work pay off. Not only did we win, but we were able to lap the whole field, including the much larger, 5,000 HP turbine boat along with the boat we won the world championship with two years ago [now belonging to AquaMania]. It is a great accomplishment, and I am proud of our whole team.”

    Johnny Tomlinson – Throttleman – Budweiser Select Offshore Team
    “Obviously I couldn’t be happier for our whole Bud Select Crew. Everyone did a great job, and I am proud to be a part of such a successful team.”
