ST. JOHN - Thirty-five sprint boats hit the water of Webb's Slough on Saturday, June 17; only three went home with checkered flags.
The high-speed sprint boats competed in three classes – modified, 400 and unlimited – for the best time and bragging rights from the first weekend of racing in Whitman County this season.
The Cheney-based Pour Decisions team wasn't among those with the checkered flag.
But Jason Perkins, 42, of Cheney and Eli Gurske, 17, of Spangle did finish third in the Modified Class.
Perkins was driver and Gurske the navigator.
