Trying to set a speed record?

Can you tell what type of buoy they hit?

Running 150mph in fog is dumb...hence, the morons comment.

The buoy looked like a "lighted buoy" to me. Similar to these... https://www.boat-ed.com/washington/h...on-System-ATON

From the article...

According to reports, the accident occurred about 30 minutes into the record-setting attempt when clear skies gave way to dense fog, reducing visibility to just 50 to 100 feet.
I don't care what they were doing...all I know is the guys driving/throttling are absolute idiots.

Dude calls some kids selling Coca-Cola cans out of their trunk stupid dangerous, but doesn't understand that going 150mph in 50ft visibility is moronic behavior?

Looks like the buoy was on something. Crack, weed, who knows??? Damn thing jumped right in front of a raceboat.
