300-FOOT FLIGHT BARRIER SURE TO FALL AT REV UP BIG-AIR CHALLENGE
ORLANDO, FL – April 15, 2002 So confident are the people at General Motors that this is the year that the 299-foot Ski Fly record will be broken, they have announced an exciting addition to an already blockbuster event Â¿the 5th Annual Rev Up Big-Air ChallengeÂ¿ a $2,500 bonus to the first person to jump 300 feet or more at this year's Rev Up Big-Air Challenge. The addition of a Vortec engine marinized by PCM, coupled with Correct Craft's superior boat design, is expected to help produce a 300-foot jump at this year's event.
''Because of all the changes to this new GM Vortec engine, marinized by PCM, coupled with the awesome Ski Nautique hull, it is a perfect combination to achieve the longest jump in history over the flat Earth, ever!'' said Larry Meddock, Correct Craft Vice President of Marketing.
''It will be exciting to see what the Vortec engine will do in the Ski Nautique. I hope that weÂ¿ve brought some unique opportunities to have General Motors more involved in the field of watersports.'' said Al Alvarez, GM's Vortec Engines Brand Manager. GM is offering $2,500 towards the purchase of a 2002 Chevy truck to the first person who jumps 300 feet or more at the Rev Up Big-Air Challenge and is going to match that figure for a 300-foot jump at the 43rd Masters a week later. If the same person wins the bonus at the 5th Annual Rev Up Big-Air Challenge also wins the bonus at the 43rd Masters, an additional $2,500 for a grand total of $7,500 will be awarded by GM toward the purchase of a 2002 Chevy truck.
