    Re: Wanna be a racer?


    Before you race in the Delaware River, you should talk to people who boat in that river.

    The water smells like sh*t!

    The city of Camden is a Ghetto. If it's not nailed down, it will disappear.

    Floating debris is an understatement! More like Parts of houses, sheds, pallets. telephone poles, whole oak trees, and the occasional dead body!

    This is no place for a Skater! Go to the Sarasota run and enjoy paradise.

    Re: Wanna be a racer?

    I boat in the river all the time. Its not that bad. The floating debris were because of storm that cause a very high tide. That pulled all the logs and stuff from the banks. If it always smelled that bad and has that much stuff floating in it nobody would boat there. I can tell you on Sundays in the summer floating trees are not the problem. Dodging power boats are the norm.

    Camden is a Getto I will give you that. But its Waterfront is not that bad at all. They are trying to rebuild that area. And this race is a step in the right direction. The pits are all gated so there should be no problem. And its nice around the water front.

    I will also give you the Delaware river its no paradise. I dont go to the races to see palm trees. Its a place for us to see some great powerboat racing! For many this is their first taste of off-shore racing. Racing in Philadephia has to be a plus for the sport. We dont see any kind of boat racing at all around here. We have plenty of speed freaks around these parts dying for this kind of event to happen here. Please dont kill the vibe.

    The locals around here are all looking forward to this race!!!! I want to say thank you to all the guys that are coming out to race in the River!!! See you soon.

    Welcome to the 2005 AMF Offshore
    - Dash for Cash -
    Hosted by Camden, NJ

    Hello Race Fans,

    There aren’t many new things on the Offshore Racing scene these days so when something or someone completely out of the ordinary pops up, ya just have to stand up and take notice.

    The OPA race in Camden NJ is scheduled for October 8th and 9th, and until yesterday, it had no purse and was in jeopardy of possible cancellation. Enter John Haggin and AMF Offshore Racing. This is John’s first year on the offshore circuit and he has already made a lasting impression on all the racers, especially the Performance Class racers. Haggin (as he prefers to be called) has taken it upon himself to become the champion of the P Class racers, the little guys that needs some help from time to time just getting to the next race. Haggin and OPA have really shown their generosity this time and all they ask for in return is that you join them in Camden, have some fun and enjoy a great race.

    So here’s the deal:

    A $26,000 PURSE
    1st Place - $2500
    2nd Place - $1250
    3rd Place - $750
    4th Place - $500
    5th Place - $200
    (Winners will need to present a firearms permit to take the trophies out of the state)


    To attend the race, just get to the intersection of Martin Luther King Blvd and Jersey Joe Walcott Blvd and then park in the Battleship NJ Parking lot. The Wiggins Park Marina is at the entrance to the Battleship New Jersey. Everything is very conveniently located at this race site.

    If you are coming from out of town, we recommend staying at either:

    Days Inn
    525 Rt. 38 East
    Cherry Hill, NJ 08002


    Hilton Hotel

    Get a good seat early at the Camden Waterfront or watch from the Battleship NJ. Martin Sanborn will broadcast the entire race live over the Internet on A public address system will keep spectators informed and entertained. The online radio station can be found at

    By noon the racecourse will be established and made secure. All traffic will be blocked from entering the racecourse by State Police and Coast Guard and appointed volunteer boats. At 12:45 the Performance Class 5 and 4 boats will leave Wiggins Marina and head south to the south end of the racecourse where they will await a flying start at 1pm. For about one hour the boats will tear up the 4.5-mile oval course. After their race is over, the P3, P2 and P1 boats will take to the racecourse for a second race. This race will end at about 4pm.
