James King of Wales, Mich., broke his own Saturday World Record on Sunday in the 5-litre inboard, turning 3:13.90 (92.83 mph) on the 1-mile course in the five-lap event.

King qualified Saturday with a record speed of 92.097 in 3:14.18. Owner of the No. E-2 Pleasure Seekers boat, King put the Chevrolet powered 350-cubic inch engine through its paces in a boat built by Auld Racing. The old record (90.854 mph) was set by owner-driver Kent Henderson of Rockville, Ontario, Canada, on July 18, 2015, at Waterford, Mich.

All of the records must be certified and the boat and engine must pass an inspection by APBA officials before they are recognized.
