Just 80% of the race boats and four days of racing.

Plus Destin is a beutiful spring break type of area. It won't suck.

So where are you racing this November?? Bar stool or canopy?

It seems to me offshore racing just needs some major promotion. Sure spectators will come to see the boats, the racing, etc. etc.....BUT you still need more! Take a look at NASCAR growth over the last ten years. From nothing to the fastest growing sport....period. They spend a **** load of money so the fans actually have a memoriable experiance. More than not, the memories are very rarely the race itself. Its unfortunet for offshore racing it's not in a contained area. Makes selling tickets a bit difficult. Perhaps A new (BIG)sponsor every year would help expenditures.

Funny, I thought I didnt post this thread, but just the same always like to get opinions. As for sponsors. Budweiser Select will be the primary Sponsor of the Destin OSS/OPA/POPRA World Championship.

I had never been to Orange Beach til 2003, and all i can say is Orange Beach is a great race town,2 weeks ago every hotel was sold out, people came from all over to see the race, including many from Biloxi, MS. who are still re-building from Katrina. And look forward to when the boats come back to thier town to race.

Again thanks to all that take tthe time to write a opinion whether it is popular or not.

The best racing WILL be in Destin, but so will the 40's at night and if you're lucky, the 60's during the day. Good luck seeing Tata's uncovered in Destin.

The BEST SHOW will still be in KW. As I've said before 175 POKER RUN teams can't be wrong.......
