Default It's confirmed...Offshore races will be at the Desert Storm Poker Run '08!

The biggest poker run in the west has just become even bigger! The Desert Storm Poker Run, scheduled for April 24-25-26, 2008 in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, is now a triple-header event with a Poker Run, a High Speed Shoot-Out, and an Offshore Race plus a Street Party! The boating extravaganza kicks-off on Thursday night, April 24 with a giant Street Party starting at 5:00pm on McCulloch Boulevard featuring as many as one-hundred of the most exotic high performance boats in the country. Then on Friday, the traditional Desert Storm Poker Run with up to 200 boats begins at 10:30am followed by an outdoor party at the Nautical Inn Cove that evening. On Saturday, motors start to rev at 8:30am as Lake Havasu hosts its first High Speed Shootout where boats will be radar-timed along a one-mile straightaway for top speed and bragging rights. At 12 noon the Shootout takes a break while POPRA conducts a full-on offshore race. Then at 2;00pm, the High Speed Shootout resumes for another three-hours. Finally, the three-day speed-fest concludes that night at 7:00pm with an Awards Dinner at the Lake Havasu Aquatic Center. Better make your plans immediately -- we bet there won't be a hotel vacancy in town! For more information log on to www.lakeracer.com


Theres already over 100 boats signed up for the poker run and around 50 boats from various racing organizations commited to racing on Sat.

Jim, Art and the rest of the DS-08 organizers are still working out the final details and the races may be held on Sunday but they are for sure happening.

Hope to see everyone out there for this awesome run!

Tank,

What's up!

Do you what part of the lake they're going to run the shootout and the race? How are they going to control the spectator boats? I want to make sure I get a good parking spot to watch all the action!

I believe it's going to be between the casino and Windsor launch ramp...In that general area.

I don't think OSS has officially signed up but there are about 15-20 boats from OSS that are racing.

There will be several bat boats there to race. And we will be there with ours. I would like to do the poker run too.
