Having recently bought the U-9 hull and equipment, Strong Racing today announced the purchase of all Ellstrom/Elam Racing assets. The deal includes the Ellstrom E-3 hull, engines, gearboxes, hauler and accessory equipment. The boat last raced in 2017 with Oh Boy! Oberto sponsorship.
While announcing the additions to the Strong Racing stable owner Darrell Strong commented “When I decided to become an owner I set a goal of creating a benchmark team. This is one more step toward realizing that goal and I’m really pleased with Erick’s enthusiastic support.”
Contacted about the sale Erick Ellstrom said “When Darrell explained his approach to racing and plans for this team it made sense to help him succeed. I’m excited and looking forward to Strong Racing’s impact on the sport!”
With sponsorship arrangements in the works Strong Racing plans to race both boats in all 2021 H1 Unlimited events. A driver announcement for the team’s second boat is expected soon.
