Sgro-Meyer team takes lead at Marathon Gran Prix

The Associated Press
MARATHON, Fla.
New York powerboat racers Joe Sgro and Peter Meyer drove Instigator to an easy win Saturday during the first of two races that comprise the Marathon Offshore Gran Prix in the Florida Keys.

Race officials originally said they were placing Instigator fourth for incorrectly navigating a turn buoy at the end of the first lap. Later Saturday night, they overturned that decision and restored the Sgro-Meyer team to the top of the standings in the nine-boat Super Vee class.

In second place is Rodriguez Group, piloted by Michel Karsenti of Cannes, France. The Miccosukee Indian Gaming boat, driven by Brett Furshman of Coral Springs and assisted by Troy Hannon of Davie, was third.

Sgro and Meyer of Long Island never relinquished the lead during the 7.5-lap, 49-mile course on the Gulf of Mexico side of the Seven Mile Bridge.

"We just took off and didn't look back," said Meyer, the boat's throttleman.

Instigator, a 38-foot Fountain with two 525-horsepower engines, averaged 93.4 mph.

The second and final race of the weekend is set for Sunday afternoon. Compilation of total points from both days of racing will determine event winners in various classes.

"There's another race to go, so we'll see what happens," said Furshman.

Poker Run 42 is production model.

Race Boats can be ordered too.

I'm sure they spend more time on the bottom's getting both Poker and Race hulls perfect.
