A day at the races

I was thrilled to be able to watch the inaugural race of the Offshore Super Series Powerboat Racing Association, Smokin’ The Sound (of which I designed the website while at The Ad Group) this weekend. I not only got to see the races, but I actually viewed them on the water, parked between Beau Rivage and Casino Magic casinos. It was a total blast being so close to these thunderous machines racing at over 125 mph on the Mississippi Sound.

We got great racing that was marred only by an accident on Friday practicing which unfortunately killed the driver of the boat. However, the racers were in top form on Sunday, and we were treated to a great race and a great racing venue. The weather cooperated for most of the day, with heavy thundershowers only arriving shortly after the last race had concluded. I am looking forward to this event coming back next year and will be attending for sure.
