A pair of veteran offshore powerboat racers who call Sarasota, Fla., home, Don Urfer and Richard Davis are departing the sport’s Bracket 100 class and entering the Super Cat ranks this season with a Skater Powerboats 388 catamaran Urfer purchased from former top-speed shootout competitor Kenny Mungle of Texas. The 38-footer, originally ran under the STIHL team umbrella and is powered by twin 750-hp engines from Sterling Performance.

Formerly called Cigarette Justice League for the 42-foot V-bottom it ran in Bracket 100-class competition, the new Super Cat team will run as Justice League Racing.
Urfer, who has been racing since 1986, will drive the cat. A four-time world champion and American Power Boat Association Hall of Fame member—he was inducted in 2006—Davis will handle the throttles.
Fellow Sarasotan Cory Shantry will be the team’s alternative driver. Bobby Adams, who crewed for the Miss GEICO and Spirit of Qatar offshore racing teams, will take on the role of crew chief.
“Over the past year we have had a chance to get back into racing and build a solid team,” said Urfer in a press release from the team. “I am looking forward to the upcoming race season.”
Urfer and Davis ran this 42-foot Cigarette raceboat in the Bracket 100 class last year.
