Offshore Super Series Boat Racing Kicks Off in Biloxi, Mississippi
There was barley enough time for the Lake Tahoe, California snow to melt before the opening race of the OSS (Offshore Super Series) 2008 boating season. Water enthusiasts from all over headed to Biloxi, Mississippi for the annual Smokin’ the Sound race.
Worthy Risk in Biloxi, Mississippi for Offshore Super Series Boat Racing
The K&N sponsored Worthy Risk Racing Team made its debut with a new 29 foot Extreme canopied race boat. Owners Brad Johnson and Jack Crouse teamed up with crew members Mike Hesse and Dave Brown for this event.

Team Worth Risk drove from California to Mississippi for championship points in the OSS Series
The four drove from California to Mississippi in their 2007 Chevy truck with the new boat in tow. “Both the truck and boat had fresh oil changes with K&N oil filters,” said Johnson, who is also a Lake Tahoe mechanic. “I know the importance of clean oil and a good filter. It can make the difference between making it to the end of the season or blowing a motor half way through.”
On Saturday the qualifying and testing began for the Offshore SVL (Super VEE Lite) class. There were twelve boats competing who were able to try a new inverted, two-by-two starting grid which is also known as the NASCAR start.
The next day, only nine boats were qualified to run. Worthy Risk ran in the afternoon in the last row at the start of the race. “This was Brad and Jack’s first race and they had very little seat time,” said Johnson. “We came in fifth place, but we were happy about it.”
“The boat ran flawlessly,” said Crouse. “It will be a contender against the veterans of the popular SVL class.”
The team plans to make it to every race this season. “We want to be the points champion,” said Johnson. “I run K&N air and oil filters along with K&N air intake systems in all my vehicles. I also use K&N in my racing equipment and recommend that my clients use K&N products as well.”
The next race event will take place on April 26 and 27 at Lake Havasu, Arizona.
