The fuel sponsorship news follow on the heels of the announcement that GEICO will be the title sponsor for the 2015 SBI season, which begins May 15-17 with the Cocoa Beach, Fla., event.
“I think this is going to be a very pivotal year not only in boat racing, but in our economy,” said Carbonell. “We had great support from our race teams last year and they have already shown their commitment and passion to join us in 2015. With lower fuel prices, it will help our race teams as long as the economy stays strong. Many others have commented on their forecast for next year and I believe it is going to be a very good year.”
