Deefield Beach,FL - It was a big day at the races today as the Super Boat Grand Prix roared into South Florida waters. Super boat rivals Mapei and The Hulk duked it out in 10 laps, totaling 64 miles.

In the end, Mapei beat The Hulk by 17 seconds, earning its fourth national title in the Stock class.

In the Super Vee class, "Rio Roses Fountain stayed on top, averaging 87.78 mph over the 83.2-mile course to finish in 56:52," reported the Miami Herald.
