Offshore Powerboat Racing
Strictly Business Motorsports Race team is a part of the primary sanctioning body, Offshore Powerboat Association (OPA) LLC, with over 200 members from all over the east coast. Races are every other week beginning in mid June of each year with our season ending mid November in Englewood Florida for the World Championships. OPA Races span the East Coast from New York to Maryland to the Great Lakes area. Race teams are broken down into different classes that are bracketed either by speed or mechanic specific rules. Come experience the thrill of watching these fast race boats competing to be the best in their class.
Strictly Business is categorized as a Class 2 or V6 Class, meaning that they are not bracketed by speed, but by what type of HP engines they use in the boat. This particular class is limited at Twin 525HP motors with unlimited speed. Over the years Strictly Business has raced all over but has gained most popularity with its arch nemesis, Wazzup Racing. Fans love to indulge in the teams’ friendly trash talk and horseplay. Come visit Strictly Business at any of the upcoming OPA Racing events, fun and friendly environment including race village and meet the racer & parade festival.
