Hello RaceGirl3,
Yes, we have OPA now. How many have we had since the 70s?
A few and none got the media coverage that that talked about when they split off and started their groups.
I'm Offshore Racing fan since 1975 and raced from 1976 to 1983/84.
I love to see the sport grow to where it should be after all these years.
Thank you
Jim

RG3.. You need more of the following if you truly want to build a fan base no matter what the acronym is....

True true .... there are lots of people at the races ... just most arent as vocal as I am... and maybe ones that havent been out in a while will come to see if Im tellin the truth or if Im full of **** .... maybe it doesnt take much to get me excited ... or maybe it does

..And the only race I have seen (Offshore) where you knew the
winners were Marathon and St Cloud..[/QUOTE]

But you havent been to a OSS race, Or OPA, they let the winner parade the flag in front of the crowd!!!

RG3,
If everyone had the passion for our sport that you do we would be on every channel in the world. You are infectious( in a good way). LOL you are just as involved in the growth of offshore racing as any of the racers, maybe more, you show your love( and butt) and it makes a lot of people want to attend, me included. Well it my be a conflict of interest but I vote for offshore.
PS dont forget the stickers
