    The GREATEST SHOW--ever--at the Miami Marine Stadium

    ONE DRIVER--SITTING--WITH A FOOT THROTTLE--NEARLY 200 MPH--A LEFT TURN COMING UP EVERY FEW SECONDS!!
    ...Yes, bigger boat, smaller water. That's why. Viewed them at multiple locals over time. Loud, spectacular, fun. Probably the best boat racing there is, spectatorwise...

    You'd be surprised how often that is true. Not uncommon for Mr. Money to want to go racing, but with very little (none) experience, so the best place for him, is behind the wheel. You know...The Don Johnson types...The Chuck Norris types...The Bruce Jenner types...etc. There is a hundred of them.
