Check out the dry pits and street party from this weekend’s SBI event in Cocoa Beach, Fla., in the slideshow above.

The Superboat Stock class has grown to five boats with the addition of two entries. Stock-class veteran Gary Ballough is running GB Racing, a 32-foot Doug Wright catamaran powered by twin 200-hp Mercury Marine outboard engines. (The cat is running 160 less horsepower than the other entries in the class—read the story.) Kyler Talbot and Jay Muller will be running Talbot Excavating, another 32-foot Doug Wright cat that made its offshore racing debut six months ago at the 2014 SBI World Championships in Key West, Fla.

The P4 class also have expanded to five boats with the addition of Allen Bryant and Robby Robinett in Team Raven and Robert Christie and John Jeffreys in Christie’s Photographic Solutions.

Editor’s note: Tomorrow’s races are scheduled to begin at noon, 1:15 p.m. and 2 p.m. (EST). Courtesy of Super Boat International, speedonthewater.com will carry the livestream from the event.
