Berwick, PA – With a break between BUBBA Burger Junior Series (www.bubbaburgerjrseries.com) events, and older sister and BUBBA Series Teammate Lily recovering from injuries she received in a crash at the Milton, NH Summer Kick Off Regatta, thirteen-year-old Team BUBBA driver Eden Deware traveled to Berwick, PA and the tricky Susquehanna River to race in 5th Annual Berwick Area Regatta. Unlike the all the BUBBA Junior Series events that are raced on ponds or lakes, the Berwick event adds several twists that most of the young drivers do not regularly experience. These include a strong river current, a narrow race course, and one “Pin” corners. To add to the difficulties, the drivers faced a tricky “up-river” wind during Sunday’s racing.

In Saturday’s Junior class event Eden overcame a poor start to pass several drivers, winning the event going away. Second place went to Nicholas Wheeler of Chester, MD followed by Gianna Misero also of MD taking the third and final podium spot.

In Sunday’s event Deware had to overcome a major setback when she broke her engine in the AX Class race. At the last minute Deware borrowed the motor of her cousin, Jack Lyons. The last-minute change gave her the opportunity to salvage the day’s racing. Although she had a good start, the race belonged to Nick Wheeler of Chester MD and Gianna Misero. But a starting infraction cost Wheeler the win and gave Misero her first career victory. Deware finished second with Wheeler rounding out the podium.

After six events Deware sits in the #1 one spot in both the BUBBA Burger Junior Series , Junior Class and the American Powerboat Association national Junior Hydroplane class rankings.

Deware’s next event on the 2017 BUBBA burger New England Junior Hydroplane Championship Series is the 41st Annual Thompson Regatta in Thompson, CT.
