Rob Rinker dominated the SST-45 class in Lakeland.
Team AMSOIL powerboat driver Terry Rinker has a new racing partner for the 2011 season as his son, Rob Rinker, will race a full schedule alongside his Hall of Fame father. Kicking off the season last weekend in Lakeland, Fla., Team AMSOIL swept every heat of competition as Rob won all three heats in the SST-45 class and Terry won all seven of his heats to take the Mod U and SST-120 titles.
“Lakeland is always a fun event for us,” said Terry Rinker. “This year was even better with Rob winning. It’s going to be a fun year and hopefully we will sweep more weekends.”
Rinker Racing will compete for the PROP Tour and Powerboat Super League championships in 2011. The team’s next race is June 17 in Elgin, Ill.
