Wheatland, MO (July 3rd, 2012) – Saturday and Sunday, July 7th and 8th the NBRA (National Boat Racing Association) will make their first official appearance at Lake Lucas. The NBRA sanctions boat races throughout the Midwest and beyond through various chapters and organizations.The organization recently held a Test and Tune at Lake Lucas and will return for an exciting weekend of racing. The boats racing this weekend are very different than the Drag Boats that appeared on Lake Lucas earlier this summer. They are small boats called Runabouts or Hydroplanes, where the pilot kneels while driving in an elongated circle. This type of boat racing is similar to the setup of dirt racing. They will run multiple “heat” races with several boats on the water at once and then run a final feature to end the show.
Saturday night, the Casey’s General Stores Mid Season Points Championships will be held on the Diamond of Dirt Tracks. Spectators can take in both events on Saturday for only $17. Gates will open at 10 AM Saturday.
