In my opinion, if somebody is putting together a race boat for $10,000 or less, that person (team) doesn't have alot of money to play with, which means that they are not traveling anywhere more than an hour or 2 drive. I love the idea, I just think they will only race local races. I hope I'm wrong.

Racers could have the choice of tow money or prize money, as we all do
