Herd Racing ends the 2016 SST-120 powerboat racing season tied for 10th place in the Powerboat Nationals U.S. points standings. A total of 22 teams were ranked in the final standings released by Powerboat Nationals on September 5.
"We weren't able to run the full slate this year, but to end up in the middle of the pack after only running half of the available races is not too bad," said Herd Racing pilot Dana Tomes. "We'll see how the scheduling works out for us next summer and hopefully be able to participate full time on the national circuit again."
The Herd Racing team competed in the North American Championships in Huntington, WV and the Northeast Divisional Championship in Ravenswood, WV. Races the team did not attend included the Intergalactic Championship in Rising Sun, IN and the U.S. National Championships in Shreveport, LA.
Tomes said the team will work over the winter months to make improvements to both it's SST-120 and Formula 1 race boats and will decide by early spring what it's 2017 race schedule will include.
