Oil not an issue, powerboats are Smokin' The Sound

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Oil is not an issue and the races are a go. That is the message from Smokin' The Sound, underway this weekend on the Mississippi Sound.

This is the first race of the year for the Offshore Super Series Powerboat Racing Association and the first race ever to combine Super Boat International Productions teams with O.S.S. teams.

Pro-Am Racing and Qualifying are on Saturday's schedule and Sunday is Race Day.

The course in the Sound goes from Point Cadet to just past Porter Avenue in Biloxi. Race Village is across from Point Cadet.

Jessica Bowman is checking out Smokin' the Sound action and finding out what this event means to South Mississippi tourism and if the oil spill has had any impact on who is competing and attending the event. You can see what she learns later today on wlox.com and WLOX News.
