Great pics at that speed, don't cut yourself short.

Why are we even talking about this?

2 guys in full race gear in a race boat.
4 guys in an open pleasure boat.

I agree with alot of people. It is a stupid PR stunt on many fronts, the most important one being the negative scrutiny this surely will bring on future poker runs.

Sheesh! Typical Reggie. I doubt he will show up for a while knowing all the big cats are gunning for him now.
I'd like to see how long his boat would last in a rough race.

The boats look almost dead even.....can't tell who passed who from those pics.

Fountain in a raceboat all geared up and Speed Racer just pleasure cruising (fast cruise ) is hardly a race. I am a V-bottom fan, but I'm sure if it were a race, then SR would have come ready and setup to run.


Reggie is getting alot of publicity out of all this. You know what?--IT's working I used to think Dennis Rodman did really stupid stunts, But he would generate alot of publicity and keep himself in the spotlight.....not such a bad idea

I tend to think the cat (once on top of the water) would be able to go faster in rough stuff. They are more stable. 180, hell no but 90-120 maybe.

Thanks for the confirmation of what I already knew -- SR is faster than RR. I do have one question, though. In the video, there is one portion where the Fountain and Speed are accelerating, and it looks like the Fountain is smokin' him. Did Rio Roses really accelerate that fast, or is that more of Reggie's creative editing?

I thought the V accelerated very fast also. From the looks of the video, Reggie left them in the dust
