 HERD TEAM LOOKS TO MOVE UP IN POINTS RACE AT RAVENSWOOD

HERD BOAT LOOKS TO MOVE UP IN POINTS RACE AT RAVENSWOOD

   RAVENSWOOD, WV - Herd Racing's #66 boat team is right in the middle of the U.S. points race, but is looking for better luck in round two this coming weekend when teams meet up in Ravenswood.

   Round Two of the Powerboat Nationals SST-120 U.S. tour converges on Ravenswood, WV, this weekend for the Constellium Ohio River Grand Prix, part of Ravenswood's historic Ohio River Festival.

   Herd Racing's #66 team is mired back in 8th place after knocking a hole in the boat at the Huntington Classic Regatta in late July.  The team, one of 14 teams who competed for the North American Championship during the West Virginia Grand Prix in Huntington, is hoping for better fortunes in the second event of the year.

   "We are going to be better prepared for Ravenswood just because we have had the boat on the water against the best competition there is and identified where our weaknesses are," Herd Racing pilot Dana Tomes said.  "Carrying along 50 or a hundred gallons of water in your sponsons doesn't help so with the boat lightened up and dried out we should do OK."

   Teams begin arriving in Ravensood this Friday for inspections.  Heat races are scheduled for Saturday with the Grand Prix of the Ohio River scheduled for Sunday.

   "We have a chance based on who participates this weekend and how we do that we could leave Ravenswood in the Top 5 in the points," Tomes said.  "That's our goal.  We'll see how it shakes out."
