With a number of teams, notably #5 WHM Motorsportfrom New Your State, being unable to travel to Florida following the storm last week and new teams arriving in St. Pete, the entry list has been quickly changing. Today is the first time since 2004 that Offshore boats have raced at St. Petersburg and the final sees 42 boats on the water. The news of the #113 Miss GEICOteam retiring from the championship has left only one contender in Class 1 - #88 SV Offshore. . That said, there has been a great turnout in Super Stock with ten race boats, so this should prove to be an exciting spectacle on the new course. There are lots of great viewing positions for the event.
If you like pink, you will love the new wrap for #S-111 A-Game DoublEdge Motorsports as it is covered in it!
The event is broadcast live on https://www.p1offshore.com/watch-live (button below) and simultaneously on https://www.p1AquaX.com/watch-live and the P1 Offshore and AquaX Facebook pages.
The Vee bottom classes, Stock V (6 boats) and Mod V classes (4 boats), will come out fighting as they have done all season. Keep an eye out for #727 Visit St Pete Clearwater / 151 Express, driven by Ian Morgan and throttled by Nick Imprescia. They are currently the youngest team in Mod V plus being draped in St Petersburg colours gives them a "home team" incentive. A completely new outfit this weekend is #11 MSP Recovery Racing operated by The Firm Racing Group.
In the Bracket 600 class, #605 Bad Company and #696 Gerard Marine are fairly close on points this season. The absence of any of the leading contenders in this class, will give one of them the opportunity to leap directly into third place.
In the 700 class #744 Jackhammer is leading the standings at this time. #744 is driven by Brian Guy, with Julian Maldonado at the throttles.
Julian will be racing against his father, Ricky. Ricky Maldonado is usually seen at the throttles in #S-42 Jackhammer alongside driver/owner Reece Langheim. Today, his driver is Reece's father, Bill Langheim in #771 Action 20 footer El Boss. Today is the first outing for this boat this season at an APBA Offshore event Championship event.
