Scism said the other CMS team—the CMS 03 48-foot MTI driven by Jeff Harris and throttled by John Tomlinson—was knocked out of the race early when Mike DeFrees and Todd Beckman drove over the back of CMS 03 in their Team CRC MTI and ripped a large hole in the rear portside of the boat, knocking the 48-footer out of the race.
That is what happens when you "rent"out the drivers seat to somebody that has no experience driving.

All of your answers are here, http://speedonthewater.com/in-the-ne...-prevail-again, but here's the short version

Miss GEICO—starboard engine issue.
Cooper Standard (new sponsor for Twisted Metal)—Ignition issue
Sailor Jerry—power steering loss.
Stihl—port (not 100 percent sure on this) engine issue.
WHM—nothing, they took first in the Superboat class.

Hope this helps. I realize that "engine issue" is not exactly a high level of detail but sometimes that's all we're able to get from the teams.
