The Clearwater Offshore Nationals, an event with a history spanning more than a decade, brought out the best of the best from the global offshore racing community this year! Scism and Tomlinson delivered a heart-pounding spectacle that had fans on the edge of their seats in the 450R Factory Stock Class as the daunting duo claimed another first place win this season! Set against the backdrop of Clearwater, Florida’s pristine coastline, we witnessed the two be rewarded for all of their hard work.
Kudos to the RWO officials for getting the flipped boat cleared quickly and getting the weekend back on track. The race re-started and defending national champions throttleman John Tomlinson and driver Taylor Scism in their 39-foot MTI, TS Motorsports, moved to a lead they would not relinquish.
“We gambled on prop selection at the last minute and knew we would be hero or zero,” Scism said. “We threw on the big props and hoped for the best.”
