The annual offshore world championships are being held in Key West, FL next week. For those who can’t make it to Key West, there will be a live radio show with commentary on the races and interviews with teams. John Tomlinson and Taylor Scism will be included within the interviews. Continue reading for more information, including a tentative schedule.
A couple of longtime fans of speedonthewater.com, especially when it comes to coverage of the annual offshore world championships that descend upon their hometown of Key West, Fla., Todd Swofford and Rick Lopez of “The Zone” 97.7 FM Sports Radio will once again be broadcasting live from the Sandbar Sports Grill on Thursday, Nov. 10, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Offshore racers Shaun Torrente and John Tomlinson will be among those interviewed during the live 97.7 FM Sports Radio show hosted by Rick Lopez and Todd Swofford before the ninth annual Speed On The Water Key West Bash presented by CMR Construction and Roofing.
But this time around, we thought we’d give them a little extra work to do during their two-hour radio show at the Sandbar, which also is the host venue for that evening’s annual Speed On The Water “Racing To Rebuild” Key West Bash presented by CMR Construction and Roofing. So we assembled a bucket-list group of relevant interview subjects in town that week for the American Power Boat Association/Union Internationale Motonautique Offshore World Championships produced by Race World Offshore.
Here’s is a quick list of those subjects and the planned interview schedule:*
5 p.m.—Shaun Torrente and Steve Soule of CMR Construction and Roofing
5:20 p.m.—Tyler Miller and Myrick Coil of M CON
5:40 p.m.—Taylor Scism and John Tomlinson of TS Motorsports
6 p.m.—Steve Curtis and Brit Lilly of Huski Chocolate
6:20 p.m.—Larry Bleil of Race World Offshore and Mark Waddington of Performance Boat Center
6:40 p.m.—Reese Langheim and Ricky Maldonado of Jackhammer
6:55 p.m.—Speedonthewater.com co-publisher Matt Trulio and Mercury Racing general manger Stuart Halley
