Panama City, Florida USA – The Sea-Doo X-TEAM racing season started off with a historical win as Chris MacClugage showed his move to the new Sea-Doo RXP-X was the right one as he dominated the highly competitive PRO Stock Class, winning all three motos.
The first round of the 2012 IJSBA National Racing Tour opened the national championship chase on Florida’s Emerald Coast in Panama City playing host to the best watercraft racers in North America. This was MacClugage’s homecoming as the native Floridian, now residing in Lake Havasu, Arizona, made his legend riding in the Florida surf and did so brilliantly aboard his MACC Racing/Monster Energy Sea-Doo RXP-X watercraft.
“My Sea-Doo RXP-X is really fun to ride in the surf,” said an elated MacClugage after his moto hat trick. “It is so much easier to go fast on the RXP-X compared to what I used to ride; the hull is so good and the power is perfectly matched with the handling. I had a really good time racing out there today.”
Although only available for a few months, the runabout class starting lines gave a glimpse that the new Sea-Doo RXP-X with T3 hull and ErgoLock system will be the new standard in watercraft racing for all levels. This RXP-X watercraft raced by MacClugage is the same watercraft any musclecraft enthusiast can purchase today from any of the 1500 BRP/Sea-Doo dealers across North America.
The next round of the BRP/Sea-Doo supported HydroTurf IJSBA National Tour will be this weekend, May 26-27 in Montgomery, Alabama.
