For many reasons, the five-boat Supercat class stood out at last weekend’s Offshore Powerboat Association-sanctioned Lake Race on Lake of the Ozarks in Central Missouri. For one, joining the locally based Performance Boat Center/Jimmy John’s team—the defending Super Boat International national and world champions in the Superboat class—were two teams loaded with veteran racers—the WHM Motorsports team of Billy Mauff and Jay Muller, and the Cleveland Construction team of Ed Smith and Bob Teague. Add in the competitive local father-and-son team H.P. Mafia, plus the newest team to the class, M CON, which is the former WHM Skater campaigned by rookie racers and cousins Tyler Miller and Brett Miller, and the class was one of the most fun to watch.
