Powerboat Racing

Here’s your weekend outlook for August 10/11 2019

Even though Summer is winding down that’s not a signal that racing is all over. This weekend will see two very high profile races starting with the Top O Michigan Marathon Nationals at Indian River, MI. Our second pick for the weekend is the popular new spot for racing in Springfield Ohio at the Fairgrounds which will host the NGK F1 series at Wake the Lake 3 where the series will pull back the curtain on round 5 with only one round left in the 2019 season. The clock is ticking on the remainder of the season so pack the kids and get out to a race near you before the season is over.
