Stock Outboard, which was the first race of the day, ran a rather limited field of only three boats. The real race developed on the last lap when Bill Westberry and Loyd Throton bumped their speed up nearly 10mph to win the race by 7 seconds over Team Stalker. Coming in third, and 17 seconds behind Spirit of Houston, was Texas based Allan Butler.
The Offshore A race was lead by Baby from the start, however Rain X Express, in their hard to miss yellow hull with wings, gave the crowd an excellent show as they hotly contested for first place.
