Mercury Racing Marketing Vehicle Poker-Run Tour 2024—From Home-Water To Key West

Mercury Racing Marketing Vehicle Poker-Run Tour 2024—From Home-Water To Key West

Given the number of go-fast powerboat poker runs in any given year, sightings of Mercury Marine’s Mobile Marketing Vehicle, which displays current product and cut-away exhibits from the Fond du Lac., Wis., company are rare. In fact, the vehicle will appear at just five such events this year, starting next week with Desert Storm Poker Run Lake Havasu City, Ariz.

From there, the Fond du Lac, Wis., high-performance marine propulsion and accessories manufacturer will haul the vehicle to the inaugural Bago Big Bet Poker Run presented by Mercury Racing, June 20-23, on Lake Winnebago in Oshkosh. But the “haul” is negligible as Fond du Lac is just 20 miles.

“Lake Winnebago is our home-water, and it’s part of our history” said Kevin Skiba, Mercury Racing’s director of sales, this morning during the opening session of the Nor-Tech Hi-Performance Boats annual dealer meeting in Cape Coral, Fla. “So we happy to be sponsoring this event.”

The next stop on the tour is Boyne Thunder Poker Run, July 12-13, in Boyne City, Mich. The following weekend, the vehicle will on site at 1,000 Islands Charity Poker Run.

Last but far from least, the mobile display will be stationed in the Florida Powerboats Key West Poker Run Village, November 5-11.
