Strong Racing acquires a second H1 Unlimited hull

It would appear that despite the uncertainty of the upcoming 2021 season that’s not stopping Darrell Strong from going all in. The announcement comes on the heels of his recent purchase of the U9 team so this current acquisition will make Strong Racing a two hull team.

“When Darrell explained his approach to racing and his plans for this team, it made sense to help him succeed,” Ellstrom said.

This means five team owners now each have two boats in their camps for the upcoming season. Besides Strong, Rob Graham, the City of Madison, Scott and Shannon Raney and Kelly Stocklin each have two boats in their camps.

Strong told the Herald he should be able to announce a driver for the second boat in two weeks.

Corey Peabody is tabbed to drive the U-9 boat for 2021.
