Does anyone know if the Miss Geico Race Team with Scott B. and Marc G., still going to be racing Miss Geico? Haven't heard anything from Scott or Marc on here. Hope that this Team continues to race and Geico continues to be the sponsor.

Marc & Scotty will still be racing and sponsored by Geico. They will now be in charge of the day to day decisions.

The question is, will they decide to retire the Turbine and get into a Super Cat Boat to battle some competition...?

I don't see the Turbine being able to sustain the budget needed without the support of John Haggin.

Thanks Tim!

I'm sure a lot of people wanted to know that info. Still am shocked to hear that John Haggin has retired from the sport. It is a huge loss to the sport but things change and we move forward but I will miss seeing him at the races and in the Helicopter flying over the race course. If it wasn't for his efforts I would of never had an opportunity to meet the Legend Ken Warby at the Detroit Gold Cup Race and at the St. Clair River Classic. Thank you so much Mr. John Haggin, you will be missed and not forgotten for everything that you have done.
