2015 Is About to Begin
May 5 , 2015
Here we go... few more weeks to get all that hardware back in the Bilges. I dont know about anyone else, but our stuff is in pieces. We'll be there guns a blazin. Really excited about the home town race kicking off the first of many this season. So whozs going?
And then LOTO is ramped up and ready for the OPA teams. Every boat that shows will be handed 1000.00 US Dollars to help offset the expense of travel. I know of a number of boats that are making the trip. If you are going please post here.
Atlantic City, is coming along nicely, as well as the Manasquan Race. Fall River Mass. first time event, deposit has been recieved, Coast Guard is on board. All is good to go. The Michigan Races are as usual ready to go. I would start booking rooms up there as soon as possible. After 13 years of working together with Mikey and the CBPBA, we have raced in Cambridge, then Solomons. It has become more and more difficult to finance the races in those areas. So we have put together a group to put on a kick ass national Championship in Ocean City Maryland. CBPBA will handle the event as usual, Saris Racing Engines, is the Prize Purse sponsor of the event. Phil Houck aka Bull On The Beach. is picking up the tab for the Crane, pit area, Trophies, and of course Food. Wild Bill Purnell is going to keep his Hotel open a week longer, and is providing all the staff lodging, and is holding all the rooms for the race teams, so call the Atlantic Hotel now and start booking. Wazzup Motorsports, will be sponsoring the insurance, Helicopter, and the staff expenses.and transport. This has been a team effort and I want to thank, Jason and Johhny Saris, Phil Houck, Wild Bill Purnell, Mikey and the CBPBA. Finally we have a World Championship in the WARM climate of Florida. Englewood Florida is working on a two week Waterfest event, second to none. There is a 50K prize purse there, that we will disscuss with the teams on how to distribute. Prize/Travel. which ever gets the teams there. So there it is. Short and sweet nothing to it. Any questions fire away.
