World-Class powerboat racing is returning to Atlantic City, New Jersey for the first time in 6 years.

The Atlantic City Grand Prix is the first event of the Offshore Powerboat Association Championship Series on the northern East Coast of the United States.

It's an exciting and wildly popular spectator sport.

The much anticipated Saturday, June 22, 2024 special event is a collaboration of The Offshore Powerboat Association, Visit Atlantic City, The Atlantic City Sports Commission and the Atlantic City casino industry.

“We are extremely proud to host the Offshore Powerboat Association in Atlantic City this summer,” said Larry Sieg, who is the President & CEO of Visit Atlantic City and the Atlantic City Sports Commission.

”After an absence of six years, this is hopefully the return of OPA for many years to come to showcase the beauty of Atlantic City and the thrilling sport of Powerboat Racing, said Sieg.

The upcoming event regarding the racers, the competition and the various events leading up to the June 22, 2024 Grand Prix is greatly anticipated.

Simply put, some of the fastest and most famous racing teams from around the world will be participating.

I will be interviewing Tom Foley and others associated with this world-class event on Tuesday, June 18, 2024 at 9:05 a.m. on the “Hurley in the Morning” program.

The raw speed of these high-powered boats will be on full display and spectators will be able to view the action from the world famous Atlantic City beach and boardwalk.

It will be spectacular.
