Most Poker Runs around the country usually have numerous national name brand sponsors to help support the event and aid with the high costs of even production. The Tickfaw 200 is more of a locally supported event with very strong local sponsorship but not many national brands.
The exception to this is Legend Marine Group from Carrolloton, Texas, just outside Dallas. Legend Marine brought an entire entourage of Texas Powerboaters to the run with them. This fun loving group had an entire section of the Blood River Landing Camp set up fro themselves that was always referred to as Texas Row, with the exception of a couple coaches from Oklahoma the rest were exclusively TEXAS. Casey Freeman who runs Legend Marine, told us the Tickfaw 200 run has the highest concentration of Legend Marine customers outside of Texas and it is an absolutely must attend for the Mega PowerBoat Dealer.
Fittingly, as a CIGARETTE Dealer, The Legend Crew ran all over the 200 mile poker run in a 39 CIGARETTE GT with Triple 300 Mercury Verados which proved to be a very economical and fun boat to make the run in.
