Shootout? They had a shootout
Yes, but they unfortunately didn't get to run too many boats through the course. Lots of trouble trying to control the course and secure it from spectators and boat traffic.
CRC ran 165, Predator 161, and a DCB 32' ran 151.

Bud Light had a higher average speed, but Team CRC was able to finish all 10 laps and take the checkered flag at the Offshore Super Series race on Lake Havasu Sunday.

The second race of the Offshore Super Series tour saw the Bud Light Racing Team boat average a speed of 146.16 mph, on the course that ran from Thompson Bay to Copper Canyon and back, but was only able to complete five laps. The Team CRC boat went the distance in 25:34 with an average speed of 134.95 mph to take the win in the OSS Cat Extreme class.

In the OSS Cat Lite, the AMSOIL boat piloted by Bob Teague took the win in a time of 38:33 and an average speed of 120.61 mph.

“What better place is there to have these races? Lake Havasu is the high performance capital of the world,” Teague said.

In OSS SC 950 racing, the Shocker race boat completed 20 laps in 42:42, just 17 seconds ahead of the WHM Motorsports boat in the closest race of the day. A full field lined up for the OSS Vee Lite race and after 12 laps, the Under Destruction race team stood atop the winner’s platform. Under Destruction ran the race in 35:49.

Sunday’s racing was the final day of the 2008 Desert Storm Poker Run, sponsored by Teague Custom Marine, Inc. and presented by Lake Racer, an event for up to 200 offshore powerboats — some costing as much as $1 million.

“This year’s event has been an unqualified success,” said Lake Racer’s Jim Nichols. “The comment cards from the participants have been fabulous. People are happy with the location and the city has been very hospitable.”

Saturday saw the Pacific Offshore Powerboat Racing Association stage the inaugural Lake Havasu Grand Prix, where Teague and the AMSOIL boat once again took a win, this time in the P1 class. The AMSOIL boat finished the 10 laps in 25:03 with an average speed of 113.79 mph.

In P3 class racing, Worthy Risk finished first in 32:43, while in PX racing it was the CRC boat once again victorious, this time finishing the 10-laps in 24.58.

In P6 class racing, the Ultimate Rush Racing.com boat barely edged out the win, finishing in 25:38, 2 seconds ahead of the Papa Dukes boat.

Kevin Cooper, president of Pacific Offshore Racing, said following this weekend’s racing, Lake Havasu will be a permanent stop on the tour.

“Absolutely, we’re coming back,” he said.

Those are the numbers we heard over the VHF radio as well.

There were a lot of spectators. We were some of them. It was very hard to hold a position because of the wind so a lot of people were kind of all over the place durring the shoot out.
