Seven boats battled in SuperCat class during OPA/P1’s 10-lap Lake Race event from the Lake of the Ozarks. AMH Motorsports, with Aaron Hope and Anthony Smith, took the lead early in the race and held on to it until the finish.

Pro-Floors Racing, with New Zealand-based owner/driver Wayne Valder and throttleman Grant Bruggemann of Florida, finished second. They were the winners in Super Cat class in the season-opening Cocoa Beach race.

WHM Motorsports (with driver Billy Mauff and throttleman Jay Muller) missed a buoy, had to go back and re-negotiate the turn. Amazingly, they recaptured their footing and managed to finish in third place.

Hometown favorite Myrick Coil, driver of SuperStock’s Performance Boat Center/Auto Alert entry, jumped into his new MTI competitor, Performance Boat Center / Jimmy John’s, for the SuperCat race with throttleman John Tomlinson. They narrowly missed a podium finish, but performed very well. 

#69 HP Mafia dropped out of the race with an apparent mechanical issue.
