We had a great time filming this video to recognize the immense effort and commitment involved to put these vessels together and get them on the water to compete. MCON Racing is thrilled to have so many eyes on our team, our history, and the work that goes into offshore racing. A special thank you to “Speed On The Water” for making this video happen!

Released six weeks ago, the Scrapyard Media/Speed On The Water video chronicling the build of Tyler and Lindsey Miller’s Class 1 Monster Energy/M CON raceboat reached 250,000 views today. That’s a mighty strong number, one that took a village to make happen, for a 32-minute documentary on a YouTube channel.
And that milestone got me thinking about the dedication and commitment real storytelling demands.

None of this happens, of course, without solid financial backing, which M CON, Performance Boat Center and Powerboat P1 stepped up to provide. That needs to be said, again and again.
To everyone involved in this project, we offer our most heartfelt gratitude. It’s not every day you can say you were part of producing something that captured the interest of a quarter-of-a-million people in just six weeks.
And it’s not done attracting eyeballs yet. Not by a long shot.
