The Offshore Super Series joined the offshore division of the American Power Boat Association.
"We are proud to announce our membership with APBA. This new association will take our organization to a new level of racing and will offer us greater opportunities," OSS board chairman Michael Mares said in a statement.
"We will remain as OSS and will continue to operate as we have for the past seven years," he added. "The biggest difference is that our races will be sanctioned by APBA. This new partnership will give our members the opportunity to be recognized internationally through APBA's affiliation with the Union Internationale Motonautique. This will also give our members the honor and the ability to be introduced into the Hall of Champions and national record books."
The powerboat association was founded in 1903 and is the U.S. national authority of the UIM - the international governing body for powerboat racing.
