Marine Racing Club officially announces the 2020 Stock, Modified and Junior Nationals will be held at Champions Park Lake, Clark County Fairground in Springfield, Ohio July 13–18, 2020. Testing will begin Monday, July 13, with racing to follow July 14–17. The blow-out day is scheduled for Saturday, July 18. We extend a big thank you to Chris Fairchild, Dana Potts and Dean Blair for helping make this even happen. We can’t wait to make the 2020 Nationals the best one yet at the new mecca for outboard racing in the USA!
As we begin preparations for the first national championship event ever at Champions Park Lake, a multitude of racers spread all throughout the country have stepped up and donated a plethora of different items and services for Marine Racing Club to raffle off at the nationals. More details will start pouring in over the new few weeks as we finalize everything, so watch this page for updates.
We also officially announce that through the generosity of John Runne and RunneCraft, we will be raffling off a RunneCraft hydroplane or runabout to one lucky winner at the nationals. The winner can choose to have their new boat built for any class in the Junior, Stock or Modified categories, and be ready to run out front in 2021! We can’t thank John Runne enough for his dedication and commitment to the sport and allowing us to raffle off one of his boats. Expect tickets to begin going for sale within the month!
