Trump Entertainment Resorts Presents
“Feel the Power” as Offshore Powerboat Boat Racing
Returns to Atlantic City on Sunday, September 19
Team Racing Boats on Display Saturday, September 18

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ – September 13, 2010 – Trump Entertainment Resorts has teamed with Geico Racing to add a little lightning to the region. The Offshore Powerboat Association (OPA) will hold the "Lightning on the Water"race on Sunday, September 19, 2010.
Who: Offshore Power Boat Association with Geico Racing
What: "Lightning on the Water" Power Boat Races & Dry Pits Power Boat Display
When: Saturday, September 18 - Dry Pits Power Boat Display and "Meet The Teams"
Sunday, September 19 - "Lighting on the Water" Power Boat Races
Where: Frank S. Farley Marina at Trump Marina Hotel & Casino and viewing from Atlantic City Beaches and Boardwalk

The brand-new event is being added to an already high-octane race schedule. In fact, the OPA is studded with competitions that run along the Eastern Seaboard and beyond. And with anticipation running at a fever pitch, "Lightning on the Water" will by all accounts become not only a fixture on the annual summer race card, but the featured event of the series.

Slated to run off the shoreline of the Atlantic City Beaches beginning from the Frank S. Farley State Marina, "Lightning on the Water" will promise onlookers the thrill of seeing missile-fast watercraft up close and personal. The Atlantic Ocean will be roaring with high-speed velocity.

Everyone from die-hard powerboat racing fans to casual by-passers will enjoy the sights and sounds of some of the premier powerboat teams, as they race in the clean waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The event is FREE and open to the public.

Observers will get to see what this sport is all about: meticulously engineered watercraft propelling across the water at breakneck speed. When the teams aren't vying for the grand prize of $50,000, the public is invited to explore the racing boats up close at the Dry Pits from 10 am – 5 pm on Saturday, September 18. As many as fifty boats will be staged at Trump Marina Hotel and Casino adjacent to the Frank S. Farley State Marina.

It's a rare opportunity to get a bird's-eye glimpse into these lightning-fast professional powerboats. It's also a chance to meet the teams and take part in the festival atmosphere. It will be a very active day as boats get craned in and out of the water as they go out to take practice laps on the race course.

On Sunday, September 19, the races will start at noon and run until approximately 4 pm. The boats will race on a four mile oval going from approximately Delaware Ave. (Just north of the Trump Taj Mahal) on the north end to Albany Ave. on the south end. Viewing will be excellent anywhere along the race course as the boats will be about 100 yards offshore.

"Lightning on the Water" spectators will enjoy a special treat, as the world's fastest race boat, the "Miss Geico" shows the crowd how it earned its reputation as a rocket ship on the water. And "Miss Geico" is just one of the attractions as more than 50 participants compete in six different bracket divisions.
