After a successful week of racing in West Virginia at the APBA Nationals, it is time to focus on the NBRA Nationals this weekend in Claremore, OK. The crew is loading the boats on the trailers and fine tuning the motors. The competition will be great and we will need to be on our "A" game to take any trophies home. So thankful for this crew pictured here that make it all possible. ... See MoreSee Less
