The first race of the six race APBA offshore national championship series, Thunder On Cocoa Beach,
remains on schedule to take place May 14-17. “As of today, we are closely monitoring the situation
from our side and remain optimistic that our race will continue as scheduled,” said Race Chairman
Kerry Bartlett.

With over 60 race teams from around the world expected to compete in Cocoa Beach, both
Powerboat P1 and the Offshore Powerboat Association (OPA) are closely monitoring the CDC
guidelines surrounding the recent Corona Virus outbreak as they pertain to large gatherings and
outdoor events. “Our number one concern is the safety of not only our racers but also our race fans.
We take that into serious consideration as we plan for each race site throughout the entire season”,
said Powerboat P1 CEO, Azam Rangoonwala, and OPA President, Roland Smith, today in a joint
statement.

This year would mark the eleventh anniversary for Thunder on Cocoa Beach which last year generated
an economic impact of $17.8 Million and 10,500 room nights for the area. This year’s race will once
again be televised on CBS Sports and “Freedom Fighter” continues to be their official charity partner.
