UPDATE on the UL race. Greg Hopp may or may not race. He's still fighting a rib injury. If he can't go, Jerry Hopp will drive the UL-1. The team could still wrap up a national championship (5 in a row?), but Greg would almost certainly not win the driver championship if he can't race.

Kayleigh Perkins would be in the driver's seat for the drivers title - she's #2 now and just 222 points back from Greg. But she would have to hold off Vince Xaudaro. Vince is only 109 points behind Kayleigh despite smashing up his boat and having a broken tailbone, thereby missing races.

But... Vince says he's ready to race, according to ULHRA's John Lynch, and he's got a ride: The UL-40 Boat Trader.com presents Fife RV for Chuck Dow's Thunder Valley Racing Team.
