WEDNESDAY, JUNE 08, 2011 - Herd Racing will be conducting an on-water demostration of a Formula 3 and Formula 2 tunnel boat today from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Schooner's Waterfront Grille in Huntington, WV. The event is a meet and greet for potential event sponsors of the upcoming Huntington Classic powerboat racing event which is scheduled for August 5-7 at the same location in East Huntington near the confluence of the Guyandotte and Ohio rivers.
On display tonight will be our refurbished Mod-U powerboat, and we will do two 20-minute on-water segments featuring our Hemp/Pugh SST-60 Formula 3 boat and then a short run with our SST-120 Seebold composite Formula 2 boat. The Superleague rescue crew and Ceredo Fire Department will also be on hand managing river traffic and setting up a mock course for our boats to run and all of the race boats and rescue boats will be on display at the end of the event at 7:30 p.m. near the entrance to Schooner's barge.
If you aren't busy we invite you come down to the river and check out the boats tonight. If you are a business person and interested in promoting your business through local racing then tonight's event would be a perfect opportunity for you to meet the event's planners, organizers and the league's management team.
