Rather than have you wait two months for what would by then be stale coverage of the Desert Storm Poker Run event during the last weekend in April and the Tickfaw 200 Poker Run the following weekend, we decided to hold open the March/April 2015 issue of Speed On The Water digital magazine an extra week or two. Much as we hated to keep you waiting, we think you’ll like reading those stories less than two weeks after the events ended—as well as the other features and all the regular departments you’ll find in this issue. Here’s a quick look at what’s on tap in the March/April issue.
