Scott Liddycoat will take over driving duties for Schumacher Racing at Bayfair in San Diego, Sept. 12-14.

Billy and Jane Schumacher have confirmed the 37 team will be in San Diego with Scott as the driver. Scott said
“I am really looking forward to driving this boat.  When I saw the way Dave had it running in the Tri-Cities it looked great.  They got it freed up and It was fast and loose and showed a lot of potential and speed.”

Liddycoat added that he looks forward to working with crew chief Bob Catapovic and many of the members of the crew he worked with in 2011 who will be in San Diego with the team.

Plans are still in the works for sponsor Bill Cahill, owner of Beacon Plumbing, to assume ownership of the team but that probably won’t happen until  after San Diego.
