Just moments before the crash Miss GEICO’s media guy Cole McGowan caught some incredible footage of Steve and James in their fight to take the lead over VICTORY Team who had made good ground to separate themselves during the initial lap of the race. You can see how Steve continued to push hard into the corners to drive them closer towards the leaders; unfortunately the boat hit a wake on the last bend which capsized them – moments later safety crew arrived to aid their rescue. Luckily both crew exited without assistance. VICTORY Team had a copy cat situation as they struggled to keep distance from Steve.
Good luck team and go catch that finish line!
