Palmer Racing finishes 3rd at this years National Championships!
Rich Palmer with teammate Scott Clark from Stillwater NY tried to capitalize on a first heat win. Battling the best in the country Rich won his first heat going away with a 15 boat lead by the time he crossed the finish line. He was running in fourth the second heat which would have gave him the overall win but was forced into a buoy dislodging it and rendering him disqualified from that heat. The first and the "did not finish" gave Rich an overall third place finish. Being that this was Rich's first nationals in this new class he was proud of the outcome.
