Pro-Am Runabout Open
The UWP-IJSBA National Tour started off the weekend with the Pro-Am Runabout Open class, anyone who was sitting on the beach is now standing with eyes glued to the starting line, and teeth clenched waiting for the exciting racing action begin. The spectators listen for the pro riders to start their loud engines and let loose towards the first buoy. Dustin Charrier has the pole and gets the hole shot. Trey Frame fights his way up to the lead and wins the first Pro-Am Runabout Open motto of the weekend. Dustin Charrier finished in second and Dustin Farthing a close third.
The second day of the Canadian Nationals was such a blast! The racing for the day got even more exciting! The second motto for the pro-am runabout open was a nail biter. Aero, the 16year old Indonesian racer got a great hole shot! Farthing started in third and worked his way up to the lead super fast, leaving Aero in second to battle it out with Trey Frame. Farthing and Aero had half a track lead when Aero's boat died on the last lap inches before the finish line, letting Trey Frame and Dustin Charrier zoom right past him to get the checkered. Dustin Farthing finishes in first, Trey Frame in second and Erminio Iantosca in third. Aero got his boat started again and finishes in fourth. Trey Frame was heard saying that he could not believe that just happened! The third motto of the weekend adds up to the overall. The number one spot went to the "King" Dustin Farthing, Trey Frame comes in with a solid second, and Erminio Iantosca sneaks in to win third.
