Hey BAD APPLE, dont worry its still early in the week maybe they will have a new release before the race.
Or it might be a way to get you not to go so they can win again. Then they can tell everyone that they won again cuz your SCARED!!
Maybe if they would untie their boat from the tree they would do better!!

It's a shame that racing in the US is so messed up. I can remember how much fun it was to watch it on TV on saturday mornings about 5 years ago.
Ditto. Miss THE OLD DAYS.

Correct me if I am wrong but didn't it say, that the only race that they were not going to attend was the Pickwick race as of now? I think other manufactures should take notes from OL. It is a major undertaking to go overseas, especially with a whole seperate boat, crew, trucks, ect. ect. My hat is off to them, and I would like to wish them luck!

Seems wierd....

The list of teams exiting the OSS organization is long, but distinguished.

So in summary FOUNTAIN wins!
Do you not see the big Outerlimits support trailer going to alot of Poker Runs?? I dont see Fountain or any other manufacture doing the same as Outerlimits does. And by the way Fountain doesn't win. I applaud OL for racing over seas and giving their customers great support. Hustler is another manufacture racing in P1 this year.

They do have two to my knowledge. I think they sold the first one to somebody.

Boat one is overseas and Boat 2 was put together to race here until Michael quit. Neither are sold. They will probably race one or two more and the worlds. Figured they had no shot at the national title in both divisions so why lose face. I'm taking golf up with you Brian.

Anyone want to buy a Fountain that everyone is afraid to race?

It was great racing while it lasted. The OL vs Fountain battle will rise up again, at least here on OSO.
