Team AMSOIL offshore racer Bob Teague has rebuilt his program after a year of upheaval and uncertainty.
In 2013, the Offshore Powerboat Association (OPA) and Super Boat International (SBI) introduced extremely different engine rules that were a stark contrast to the large twin 525’s that Teague successfully used for years.
Knowing he faced the ominous task of completely rebuilding his engine program, a costly endeavor, Teague decided it was best to wait out the changes and see which series would rise with the tide.
Teague and long-time driver Paul Whittier made their 2014 OPA debut in August and returned to their winning ways at the season’s second race in Michigan. They followed that up with another win in Detroit in early September. The fall schedule lines up to be a busy one for Teague, and it includes big events in Maryland and Florida.
Teague understands changes are inevitable. Series change their rules, move events or switch ownership. For Teague, it’s business as usual and a chance to continue racing and winning.
