Frank and Als take top spot in St Pete Beach despite penalty

It was a fantastic weekend of racing as the waters off St Pete Beach provided the perfect conditions for some side-by-side racing.

And it was Frank and Als who came out on top after notching up two wins from four races to take a comfortable lead for the weekend and take control of the championship standings after three rounds.

They suffered a penalty in the final race that demoted them to sixth but it was more than enough to keep them on top after Visit Jacksonville were forced to sit out Sunday’s racing because of a mechanical issue.

Visit St Petersburg/Clearwater, the home team for the weekend, came back strongly on Sunday to take the victory in race four, however, it wasn’t enough to knock Spectre off second spot.

Team Barbados came into the weekend leading the championship but they could only manage fifth sandwiched between fourth place Southeastern Lighting Solutions and sixth FJ Propellers.

GEICO continued to struggle and there was a no show from Sarasota Ford on Sunday who will now be looking to get back on track at their home race weekend on Fourth of July weekend.

St Pete Beach is set to host the penultimate round of the 2018 SuperStock USA Championship on June 16/17.

Last season saw the SuperStock Championship travel to St Pete Beach for the first time, alongside the P1 AquaX Series, in sweltering summer heat.

St Pete Beach is known as a prime tourist location and has some incredible bars and hotels with views right out into the Gulf of Mexico.

Whilst the population of St Pete Beach is just short of 10,000, expect the sandy beach to be packed as locals and tourists flock to take in some of the best coastline views in Florida.

Frank & Als Racing took victory at this venue in 2017 before going on to win the championship by the narrowest of margins - their first ever.

Come to the Postcard Inn. to see first hand the fast action racing and other activities going on during the races.
