Nine teams competed in OPA/P1’s third race of their Lace Day event, which featured SuperStock class competitors (including Cocoa Beach winner Shadow Pirate, with owner/driver Nick Scafidi). Five of the teams were from the Lake of the Ozarks.
S-8 CR Racing, driven by Rob Unnerstall and throttled by Casey Boaz, took an early lead and stayed out in front of everybody for the entire race, with Shadow Pirate making a valiant attempt to overtake their lead. Scafidi had to settle for second, while driver Myrick Coil and throttleman Rusty Williams took third place in Performance Boat Center / Auto Alert, 32-foot Doug Wright catamaran making its debut on the race course this year.
Jackhammer, a new Victory hull, was rigged in a hurry to make this race. Other competitors included Team Allen Lawn Care, FJ Propeller, WIA/Wide Open Racing, Killer Bee and Caddyshack / Reliable Services.
