Dave Scott Owner/Driver Budweiser Select Offshore Team
"I was very excited to debut the new blown-alcohol engine in the 44' MTI. This was the first time this boat has ever been tested and run with these engines. It produces more horsepower than our regular 1500 HP engines. We were glad we could debut it here at the Shootout. We were very happy to be able to show our fans our three boats, and really appreciate all the support from them and our sponsor, Anheuser-Busch."
"The crew worked very hard during the last three weeks to prepare for this race, especially after having a race just last weekend in Orange Beach, Alabama. The crew worked hard at that race, and then worked to get all three boats ready for the Shootout with only a week in between."
"This was also the first time we were able to make a full pass in our Turbine boat. We are very happy with the way it handled and ran down the course. We had a top speed of 188 MPH, which is a great inaugural run and a great start to the future of our Turbine program. However, I'm a little disappointed we weren't able to capture the Top Gun title. Team Callan won the Top Gun title with a top speed of 209 MPH, and I congratulate them. Dave Callan and John Cosker did a great job and have proven to be a good competitor. We welcome good competition because it gives us the push to continue to strive for better results."
"During our first pass with the new engines in the 44' MTI on Sunday afternoon, we hit the start line and had great torque and got out of the box very quickly. We were headed straight down the racecourse and about two-thirds of the way down, the boat started to lift. We definitely caught some air, and as we settled down, we drifted to the right. For safety reasons, we had to let out of the throttles, which was unfortunate because we didn't really get to see what those engines could do."
