Many families and individuals take on the momentous task of traveling the country to win a national championship title, thousands of miles and dollars in search of the championship title. We have made many great friends and visited amazing venues; from the white sand beach in Panama City Beach & Pensacola Beach, Florida to Sierra Nevada Mountains near Sparks/Reno and the breathtaking horizon of Zion National Park in St George, Utah. We journeyed back to the east coast rounding out the tour in Hartwell, GA and Charleston, WV, where simplicity is a comforting way of life.
We want to thank each and every one of you for making the tour the success it is today. Our title sponsor Hidden Trails Motorsports of Charleston, WV has been associated with the national tour since 2009 as an event sponsor in Charleston. But Trey and Cameron Frame’s love for jetski racing with UWP began long before that in small town in central Pennsylvania on Raytown Lake in 2001. We especially want to thank Trey, Cameron and the entire Frame family for their time, dedication and love for the sport over the many years.
To all of our other sponsors; Yamaha, Sea Doo, Optima Racing, Jetlift, Goggle Grip, Jettrim, Solas, Slippery Wetsuits, Jet Renu, Davis Trailer World, Austin Spencer and IPD Graphics, we thank you for standing behind Pro Watercross as it transitioned into membership organization and a worldwide sanctioning force behind watercross racing. We have grown from regional racing to worldwide recognition over a relatively short time and we are proud to say that with their support, Pro Watercross now is being tracked on its impact on the industry and each of these sponsors have played a part in that evolution. Support of the sport is essential in its growth and it does take a village…
Please take a moment of your off season to contact our host cities to thanks them for their support; each of the cities invites us in to their communities and makes each venue welcoming. Please keep these cities in mind the next time you are planning a trip or weekend getaway; Give the CVBs or Chambers of Commerce a call to see what great deals they may have for returning visitors!
Our media partners; Pro Rider Watercraft Magazine, The Watercraft Journal and JetSkiWebsites.com all bringing the latest pictures, results and stories to 100,000 + readers after each event. The coverage has been great and we thank you… Rich Ignasio, Dawn Dawson and Mike Young did and amazing job of bringing the racing action into your homes this season. Rich was behind the scenes with the live web streaming with equipment, technology and knowhow while working in some extreme weather conditions. Dawn and Mike (who are flawless together) their race commentary and analysis of each event brought professionalism to a new level as we moved through the tour. You can see Mike and Dawn on Pro Watercross’ last two TV shows this season that are being produced by a new crew as we work towards the CBS Sports TV show being aired on October 18, 2015 at 9:00 pm EST.
Lastly, and most importantly we want to thank our staff, they are the backbone of the tour. These are all extremely hard working individuals who are the first to arrive and the last to leave. Their dedication is most evident at the end of the weekend, when at 9:00 pm Sunday night they are loading the last of the equipment and all manage to bring out a smile for the last picture of the weekend. These men are amazing and are not just friends, but family! Thank you Cliff & Chandler, Randy, Kevin, Ben, Rich, Roman, Chuck and Gus.
Thank to our son; Nick for his first year as a full time employee. Nick has never known a summer without Jet Ski racing and at six months old he attended his first race in Wisconsin and has been on the road every summer since. Nick sees the potential for watercross and has a vision for our sport and its athletes to become household names – we are extremely proud of him and the progress he has made in just a few short months. There are no words to express our gratitude to you except that we love you! Once again, thank you for your support and sign up today for the Pro Watercross World Championships just a few short weeks away September 22-27 in Naples, FL – God Bless each and every one of you…
