Mercury Racing is stopping traffic, wowing industry insiders and performance boating enthusiasts alike at the 19th Annual Desert Storm Poker Run Street Party.

The Mercury Racing Experience truck is located just West of the intersection of Querio Street and McCulloch Boulevard in what is one of the world’s greatest collection of high performance powerboats and tow vehicles.

Mercury Racing Dual Calibration 1550 sterndrives transform this former raceboat into a state-of-the-art poker run machine.

We are proud to be associated with “Doc” Michael Janssen’s QC4v repower project. He transformed his former race boat, an enclosed canopy Outerlimits to a modern day poker runner with fresh Mercury Racing QC4v 1550 sterndrives, Digital Zero Effort Controls and digital dash. Doc’s QC4v Experience boat is parked right in front of the Mercury truck. Dr. Janssen will represent Mercury Racing as an ambassador of our QC4v engine platform. In addition to Desert Storm, Doc’s QC4v Experience boat will be at the Boyne Thunder Poker Run, Lake of the Ozarks Shootout and Key West Poker Run.

The durable QC4v 860 sterndrive, destined for new boat builds, is a viable repower option as well.

Mercury Racing factory reps are eager to talk about our full range of high performance propulsion, including the all new – naturally aspirated QC4v 860 sterndrive and 400R Carbon Edition outboard.

We will be showing our integrated helm controls and the latest in VesselView touch screen monitors as well.

Propeller Specialist Scott Reichow is educating consumers and industry partners on everything they need to know about Mercury Racing Propellers.

She’s Worth it! 

Our Race to Repower promotion, featuring unprecedented deals on 520, 540 and 565 sterndrives, is available for those who are ready to freshen up their favorite hull with new power.

This is the perfect opportunity to update not only power but also user friendly digital controls. Today’s motors offer greater displacement when compared to the 8.2 Liter 500 carb, 500 EFI, 525 EFI and 575 SCi engines they are replacing.) This results with enhanced hole shot, mid range punch and improved overall efficiency and boat performance.  Be sure ask our experts about this limited time offer. She’s worth it!

The venerable Mercury Racing 300XS outboard is the exclusive power for the 2017 Spectre P1 SuperStock USA Championship. The low emissions, 2-stroke engine replaces Evinrude E-TEC outboards. The 300XS, featuring a potent V-6 powerhead coupled to a robust mid-section fitted with a heavy-duty swivel clamp bracket assembly and race-proven Sport Master gearcase, is designed to endure the harsh offshore racing environment. Handcrafted-precision matched Mercury Racing Propellers will ensure that each boat realizes its maximum performance.

The one-design, single-engine Powerboat P1 SuperStock outboard racing series features identically rigged 28-foot P1 Panther vee-bottom race boats.

“The performance of the P1 Panther with the 300XS is outstanding.  Acceleration and top speed are dramatically improved, and the tracking and handling is crisp and nimble. It’s like a new boat,” said Spectre P1 SuperStock USA Championship spokesperson Martin Sanborn.
