MitiGator powerboat ready to run this weekend at the OPA World Championships at Orange Beach, Alabama
The Offshore Powerboat Association (OPA) is having their biggest event of the year this weekend, the OPA World Championships in Orange Beach, Alabama on Oct 12-17th. This will be the final race of the year for the MitiGator Powerboat and it is looking to put a string of bad luck in its wake. The MitiGator Powerboat started out the year with a victory but engine troubles and rough waves have taken its toll on the Virginia based team.
Not to mention while testing for the World Championships the team broke a drive on the boat, and has spent the last week making repairs to the MitiGator Powerboat. If you can’t make it out to the races but are going to be in the Orange Beach area, tune into 105.7 for a live broadcast from the races. But this is going to be something that your going to want to see in person. Driver Warren Miller is expecting 20-25 boats per class! So come by and take a look at the MitiGator equipped powerboat and check out the races from Orange Beach!
