A staple of Stock V-class offshore racing competition, the canopied 30-foot Phantom dubbed Nobody’s Business is for sale. Team owner/driver Chris Uzzolina of North Carolina and throttleman Rob Hartmann—who hails from Connecticut—last ran the 1998 model-year Kevlar-built 30-footer powered by Mercury Racing 525EFI engines at the Race World Offshore World Championships in Key West, Fla., in November, where they finished second overall.

“We had a podium finish at almost every race this season including a win in Ohio,” Uzzolina said. “The only race we didn’t podium was in Morehead City (N.C.) because we had a transom assembly failure.”
But neither he nor his teammate are exiting the sport, much less going their separate ways.
“We are not getting out of racing,” Uzzolina said. “Our current sponsor has signed on for another season and we have added another sponsor as well.”
Asked to elaborate on the team’s next direction, Uzzolina declined to offer any additional comment.
