Building upon last season’s relationship, the CK Motorsports-backed Cat Can Do offshore racing team is beyond excited to bring on Ignite Racing Fuels and American Ethanol as the primary sponsors of the Douglas Marine-built Skater Powerboats catamaran, which took home the 2015 Offshore Powerboat Association Extreme class national and world championships.

According to CK Motorsports owner Keith Holmes, the throttleman of the Cat Can Do Skater that will be referred to as the Ignite American Ethanol Cat with the added catchphrase “Cat Can Do,” said the team is going to proudly display the American Ethanol neon green banner and the Ignite Ethanol Fuel logo on the 40-footer. The boat is expected to make its season debut at Lake Race on Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks in early June. And while the team’s 2016 schedule isn’t finalized, Holmes said there are going to be surprise showings in the racing, event and shootout circuits.
“With help from Jay Berry of Ignite, who is spearheading an initiative to hand pick different people in different racing fields to represent ethanol fuels, we feel like we can build off last year’s momentum and put more energy into informing the public about ethanol,” said Holmes, who signed on as an Ignite Racing Fuels dealer after becoming more educated on the product and having success with the fuel in his team’s Sterling Performance engines. “We’re very excited about the program and we’re looking forward to making people more aware of the benefits this renewed energy has to offer while trying to clear up some of the misconceptions people have.
