Default Joker Powerboats 611 heads North....with Checkered Flag

Joker Powerboats 611 lead from the pole position to the checkered flag in the OPA season opener in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida. In its first race, the 26' hull, built by Brian Hollis and David Goode of Joker Powerboats, finished first in the Offshore Powerboat Associations Class 6. Making the win even more special was the fact that Brian and David were both on hand to watch the event as they provided the pace boat, a 41' center console Epic Performance Yacht.

Next event, St. Clair, MI. There should be 3 Joker 26s entered in the event.

That was an awesome day. We started the class 5 boats with Warren in the 28 Joker. Hauled butt down to turn two and watched you guy's fly through the turn! It wasn't long and yall checked out. It honestly gave me the itch again. Our hat is off to all the race teams and OPA!

ps...We had the camera crew in the boat and they got great footage of you guy's!
