During the Texas Offshore Performance Powerboat Squadron’s annual awards banquet last night, club member and Texas Outlaw Challenge producer Paul Robinson announced the event will be posting a $5,000 Bounty/Reward for any piston-powered offshore performance boat that successfully challenges Texas Outlaw Challenge Top Speed Shootout champion and fellow TOPPS club member Kenny Mungle and his Gone Again race team. Slated for June 22-26, the annual Texas Outlaw Challenge is held in the Clear Lake area outside Houston.
The Gone Again team, which campaigns a 32-foot Skater catamaran powered by twin 1,500-plus-hp supercharged engines from Sterling Performance, is a multi-year winner of the Texas Outlaw Challenge Big Gun honor and Mungle is a Clear Lake local.
“We are all very proud of Kenny’s accomplishments and the team’s charity message,” said Robinson. “His personal efforts to elevate public interest in our performance boating hobby is first class. We are all looking forward to seeing Kenny defend his current Outlaw Shootout Big Gun title in 2016.”
Said Mungle, “I love it. I know it will bring more focus on the shootout event.”
