Mike Akerstrom Tells HydroRacer Live Dustin Pearson had a great race, he finished third. I was plagued by electrical problems early on and couldn’t go much faster than 45mph, but still finished 22nd. Eric Weinczak took on a lot of water at the start, couldn’t get on plane, and had to turn around to drain the boat out. Then later on he hit something and broke his tie down rope. He spun out and couldn’t finish the race

Outstanding job guys, you’ve done us all proud back here stateside, enjoy the rest of the trip and safe travels back home.
