23rd Annual Suncoast Offshore Grand Prix Offshore Super Series

Scott and Crew Win Fourth Race of the Year
"You just have to love Sarasota"

Dave Scott Owner/Driver Budweiser Select 44' Extreme Boat

"We had a bad start because we were still coming out of the milling area when they dropped the green flag. We thought, `oh boy, here we go.' So we started trying to make our way to the front while also trying to take it easy on the new boat. Johnny and I were still trying to get comfortable with it."

"We lost our intercom, so as we came around to the second straight-away, we motioned to each other as if to say `Let's go get `em.' We went for it, and the boat responded really well. I think it might have been around lap four when we lapped both the turbine boat and Team Cintron. We wanted to run fast, but we still weren't pushing the boat that hard."

"I think it was in turn four when one of the motors blew, and I think we only had three laps to go. We'll have to figure out what exactly happened to the motor, but I think we busted a pulley. We are still very excited about how well the boat ran out there. It will be great to get it back out to a race soon."

"It was a great weekend with a lot of boats and tons of spectators. It's a really challenging course, and it gives you a nice blend of different types of water. You have to love Sarasota."

Next Race: July 27-29 St. Clair, Michigan OPA
