Watson Takes Second Tour Stop of 2003
Utica, Michigan (June 8, 2003) - Shawn Watson took home his second MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour stop victory of 2003, winning the Detroit Tour stop on Sunday presented by Chevy Trucks and GM Vortec engines at Four Bears Water Park.

Watson, who won the first stop of the season in Orlando April 12-13, took his second podium while Parks Bonifay finished second and Daniel Watkins finished third.

Watson was surprised by his victory. When the winners were announced, Watson was ready to take second place, thinking Bonifay had taken the stop.

When asked about his riding before the results were final Watson said, " I did all right, but Parks won it. He did everything out there."

Still, Watson takes home his second victory, putting him firmly in control of the 2003 Indmar Points standings with just three more stops to go in the season. Watson's first ever Pro Tour Season championship could be in his grasp with good showings in Portland, Oregon, Kelowna, British Columbia and Irvine, California, the remaining stops of the 2003 season.

In the SeaDoo watercraft Pro Wakeskate series final, Danny Hampson came out of nowhere to take his first win of the season. Hampson took the top spot over favorites Thomas Horrell and Brian Grubb who finished second and third respectively.

In the MasterCraft Junior X Series JD Webb took his third victory of the season to gain a strangle hold on the season points race and give him the best shot at the wild card entry into the X Games in Los Angeles, California August 16-17.
