Gulf Oil Spill Can't Stop Smokin' The Sound OSS/SBI Races This Weekend

For the first time, the Offshore Super Series and the Super Boats International circuit will team up together to hit the waters of Biloxi, MI. Racing along the the eight-mile course will be nine different classes, including the always exciting Turbine Extreme and Supercharged.

“In the past, we’ve averaged between 28 and 30 boats," race promoter Rusty David explains, “with Super Boat International joining up with OSS, we now expect 40-to-45 boats."

The exciting weekend is set to include spectacular parties, great local entertainment, and new for this year -- a Poker Run. One of the great features of this race is that no binoculars are usually needed to enjoy the action. Spectators can see all of the excitement up close at any of the premium or VIP viewing areas, which offer an awesome panoramic view of the 8-mile race course and Gulfport Lake.

While there's plenty of excitement about this early-season event, one big concern among the drivers has been the oil spill in Gulf of Mexico. According to David, a number of safety measures are already in place for Saturday and Sunday and no oil is expected on or near the track.

“We have been in contact with the racers every day about the oil,’’ David said. “Since Day One (of the oil spill) the race has been on and now the oil is further away from us."

“We hope to get some national media down here to let the rest of the country know that our beaches are open and Biloxi is alive and well, he added. “The one thing we will do on Saturday and Sunday is move a boom that’s set up inside Deer Island before the race. We will do that before the boats are put in the water.’’
