Talladega in a Pinto

2:08 pm EDT, May 17, 2013 | By Steve Bowman

DeFoe and few others may be riding in tin boats this weekend; we mentioned earlier how that could be a help or a hinderance on the final day.

 

One thing factor that could definitely make it a hinderance is a huge boat show that is taking place Saturday. It's called Lake Fest, and it's billed as the largest on-the-water boat show in the country, possibly the world.

 

Expectations are that there could be as many as 10,000 people attend this show, with much of it taking place on the water. That could create some crowded conditions, especially about check-in time.

If you are accustomed to driving something like a Toyota Tundra, then riding in a tin boat with that much boat traffic, would be like trying to traverse Talledega in a Pinto.
