Houston, TX (March 16, 2018) – Travis Odenbach’s HoneyBadger leads a field of 39 teams after day one of the J/22 Midwinter Championship. Four races were completed in a smorgasbord of conditions from overcast clouds to sun and winds from light and shifty to solid breeze between off and on showers.
Doug Weakly’s HNL opened the Championship with a bullet, ahead of Travis Odenbach’s HoneyBadger and Terry Flynn’s Tejas. Mike Marshall’s Bad News earned the next victory, with two Doyles behind him—Kevin’s Mo’ Money and Chris’s The Jug 4 1. Chris Doyle took race 3 followed by Odenbach and Marshall. Race 4 saw some new names with Mark Foster’s Pressure drop at the top followed by Danny Pletsch Sketchy and Chris Doyle in third.
Racing continues through March 18.
