Smokin' The Sound Revs Up

The loudest and fastest race boats around are converging on the Mississippi Sound for this weekend's big races. "Smokin' the Sound" is expected to have a huge economic impact on South Mississippi. The race village opens this morning at nine at Point Cadet in Biloxi.

Stop by and see the boats up close, meet the drivers, and enjoy the entertainment on tap. Yesterday, boat owners were shining up their boats, and the vendors were setting-up in preparation. Organizers say this event is as chaotic as "Cruisin' The Coast" because there are so many people and events. That's why it's so important to be prepared and well organized.

The boat races begin Saturday morning with more than 30 boats competing in five categories. For more information about "Smokin the Sound" log on to the sports page.
