    > UPDATE: AFTER REVIEWING TAPE, ABRA DECIDED U-6 HIT BUOY AND DROPPED TO 4TH


    U-25 Jarvis Fire and Water Repair(Ken Muscatel) CONCEDES / DNS

Steve David took lane one into the first turn, but Jimmy King grabbed the lead coming out of the exit pin. After lap one, the U-6 and U-3 were side-by-side, deck-by-deck. Jean Theoret caught some rough water in the first turn and fell back in fourth. Brian Perkins in the U-50 was running third.

It was a hot race between the U-6 and U-3 for the whole race, but it turned out both the U-3 and U-6 jumped the gun at the start and were assessed a one-lap penalty. That opened the door for Brian Perkins to get his first ever Unlimited Hydroplane racing win.

An hour after the race, ABRA reviewed the tape and dropped the U-6 back to 4th place after it was ruled the U-6 hit a buoy.

Huge congrats to Brian Perkins and the U-50 team! There's nothing like being in the right place at the right time (and staying out of trouble so you can take advantage of good fortune!).
