"It's similar in format to what Nascar does with the Sprint cars in that points are awarded as boats and teams compete their way down the coast in various big game tournaments. And we've talked about it for a long time and this is another layer that we thought we could add this year to the Bay Point Invitational. It's a big trophy, it's a big award and it's bragging rights for winning the most points, as the tournament series winds down the coast and ends at Bay Point"

A 6 foot trophy goes to the Triple Crown Champ. It all starts next week at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Billfish Classic in Biloxi.
