The Superboat Stock class is always competitive, but at the national championship, a dominant performance by one team put the other boats in the fleet on notice with the world championships in Key West, Florida, just around the corner. Owner/driver Rob Nunziato and throttleman Dan Lawrence in their 32-foot Doug Wright, The Hulk, held off an early challenge from throttleman Taylor Chastelet and owner/driver Chris Schoenbohm in their 32-foot Doug Wright, PatriotVapor, who would succumb late in the race to an engine problem. Kyler Talbot and throttleman Jay Muller ran a consistent race in their 32-foot Doug Wright, Talbot Excavating, to finish second, but they never challenged The Hulk. The biggest disappointment of the weekend was that Gary Ballough and Jimmie Harrison, who led points coming into the race, never even got a chance to try to keep their lead in Ballough's 32-foot Doug Wright, FJ Propeller. A ground wire on one of the motors was loose and Ballough couldn't get the boat on plane. The national title went to the Papa's Pillar Rum team who finished fourth in the seven-boat fleet.
