Melissa Backward

Melissa Backward

Owner of O-49 and 49-O TEAM US RACING

Boat racing for me began before I was born.  My father raced with the Tulsa Pleasure Craft Association in the 1960’s, and later in the 1960’s and early 1970’s announced races for OBRA.

My late husband, Mark and I began racing in 2010.  We lost Mark in 2014, and our good friends, Preadator Racing, make my racing still a reality.  Burnin Vernon Barfield put on our stirrups and drove our, 49-O, CSH, to victories in 2015, including a National Championship Race!  2016 was a very good year for the team as well.

I enjoy helping the score the races, take a turn on the turn boat and seeing the action up close!
