The simple solution is that eventually the race teams will want some real competition and will have nowhere to go BUT APBA. I can't imagine a trophy meaning much to anyone that was the only competitor.

130 sounds pretty impressive, what horse power are they running?

Next up is Orange Beach,Alabama August 22-24. Rumor has it a lot of locals will run P-Class. We will be there to do the Poker Run and watch the race and just hang out. This will be our first SBI race,hopefully it will be a nice event. Some pretty strong sponsors,they even bought a large ad in Sunday's Birmingham News newspaper,not a cheap thing.Orange Beach,Al is a cool place,anyone going,let me know, Karen and I will be hanging around the famous Florabama. I'm not into politics,just enjoy good racing.

SummerObsession Do you really think the prize money is important to the teams.? I figured for the amount of money any team spends on just travel and expenses That a little prize money would not matter. But I could be wrong

I didn't say anything about prize money. As with most any kind of racing, egos and pride play a huge part. My point is that if you are a "World Champion" in a class that has no other boats show up, so what

I could be a "World Champion" Indy car driver if no other cars showed up.

Just returned from North Carolina. I think I can speak for everyone who attended. We had a great time. Alabama will be epic. The promoter and his entire staff was in NC. They are rolling out the red carpet for us. They made it clear that everyone is welcome.

News Flash: Referee disqualified and new inspection team disassembled motors. Yes, this is SBI and no it is not a misprint.

A step in the right direction to increase boat count. It shows me they may start paying attention to the rules.
