KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) - Powerboat racers Robert Noble and Mark Kowalski are seeking top honors in the Superboat class during the three-race-series Key West World Championship.

The event begins Wednesday.

Racing in Stihl, Noble of Orlando and Kowalski of Hinkley, Ohio, won six of seven national races this year.

Last year’s Superboat world champions - William Mauff, of East Setauket, N.Y., and Jay Muller, of Sallie River, N.J. - placed third in national standings, but they have a new WHM Motorsports boat in Key West.

Marc Granet and Scott Begovich, in Miss Geico, hope to defend their Superboat Unlimited class world title. But unlike 2013, the Riviera Beach duo isn’t entering the season finale as national champions.

Nigel Hook of San Diego and Sweden’s Michael Silfverberg in Lucas Oil SilverHook achieved that.

Racing for the 40-boat-fleet concludes Sunday.
