“There were more than 200 boats registered,” said Worthy Risk owner Brad Johnson. “There was also a street party where many of the high end and extreme race boats were on display. The engine hatches were open and we saw that many boat owners are turning to K&N filters for their engine needs.”

When it was time to hit the water, all bows lined up in a single row running around 50 mph. “This is a standard offshore running start,” said Johnson. “The Production 3 class began its run in a new two-by-two NASCAR style start.” Teams are placed according to their finish in the previous race. Worthy Risk and the No. 28 race team were in the front row ready to take on the competition.

“The entire Production 3 class had its sights on turn one which was about three miles down the course,” said Johnson. “The first group went into turn one four wide with only inches between them.” The Worthy Risk team narrowly missed the No.10 boat and moved to the front of the line. Worthy Risk took the win.

“We use K&N Engineering air and oil filters,” said Johnson. “We can’t beat the additional performance and filtration K&N gives us each time we race.” The Worthy Risk team will be in Long Beach, California this coming July for the next POPRA series race
