New ‘Gulf Cup Series’ For Powerboat Nationals
Gulf Racing Fuels announced that the Powerboat Nationals championship powerboat racing series and Gulf Racing Fuels has teamed up in a multi-year agreement, with the latter as a title sponsor.
The announcement was made at the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) show. Beginning in 2017, the Powerboat Nationals Top Formula class series will be known as “Gulf Cup Series.” Gulf Racing Fuels will be the official fuel for all Powerboat Nationals “Gulf Cup Series” events. Gulf will provide track-side fuel delivery of Gulf’s MARINE ethanol-free gasoline.
The races will be held at iconic watersports locations such as Huntington and Ravenswood, West Virginia; Rising Sun, Indiana; Shreveport, Lousiana; Saskatoon, Canada and two new venues yet to be released.
Dan Bunting, President of Powerboat Nationals, Columbus, Ohio, said, “It’s great to have Gulf Racing Fuels back onboard for our 2017 season. In 2016, we presented Gulf Racing Fuels to our race teams and asked them to do some testing and give us feedback. The feedback was so good that Powerboat Nationals has designated Gulf’s Marine Racing Fuel as our Official Spec Fuel.”
