Great article. Question, I thought Sailor Jerry was a 40MTI, not 41, and twisted metal was a 38 Fountain, not 37, right?

You're right ... and I should have caught those typos in editing.

Corrected. Thank you.

Although we would have liked the national championship WHM is the 2015 SBI national champion. We tried but could not reel them in. Congratulations to Billy & Jay.

Its to bad the announcers didn't notice that Teague missed the marker and Cleveland Construction moved into the lead. I don't know how many laps went by that they kept saying Teague was in the lead when he was not. Cleveland deserved the lime light at that point and some of the announcing at that point should have been about them and how there consistency put them in first place. Nice run Cleveland !!!!!!
Thank you SBI for the live Stream. I know you had issues yesterday but I still believe its better than nothing. Is there any way that possibly when you do the live Stream that someone could keep track of the positions of the teams and announce that more often maybe after each lap?

It always amazes me that we still cant build boats that will race for 75 miles without failure.

It looked to me on the live stream that Amsoil spun out in the north turn.

They did. We had just pulled up when it happened right in front of us.
Of course, I was still at the back of the boat.

Amsoil looked like they were pushing hard all day. But that is definitely Bob and Pauls MO, always prepared and run super hard. Congratulations on a great year.
