Don't get me wrong, it was a good show but no one was actually expecting Miss Bud to compete. I think that will be detrimental to the shootout drawing support of big out of state entries like Callan in the future. My .02

I hope Powerboat Magazine steps up and gives Callan some of the coverage they deserve. Those guys put up a good fight.

MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY SHORTY!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>>>>>>>CALLAN REPRESENTED!!!<<<<<<<<

Mach1Shorty,
I think you hit the nail on the head! Someone @ Bud "HQ" decided that they HAD to be Top Gun, so pull out the ringer! I too hope it doesn't discourage particpants next year, cuz I think Miss Bud had that effect on the Unlimiteds for a while in the 90's. That being, fans went to the races with the preconceived idea that Miss Bud will end up winning on just about any given day, unless they broke. This is no disrespect towards Steve David, Mark Tate or any of the other Unilmited racers/teams, it was just that Bernie Little/Miss Bud had a bigger budget to work with.
BTW, I have personally seen the Callan C-49 run 193+ MPH!

I didn't quite get how they were allowed the "Exhibition" runs then the "Competition" runs either....Personally my vote goes to Callan.
