Detroit Lakes, MN 2018

August 11, 2018 - August 12, 2018

Event Format

The course is a 3/4 to 1 mile course, typically an oval with two corners. A modified ‘LeMans’ start (dead engine) is used from a dock, beach or seawall. As the boats are lined up ready for the start, a one-minute flare is fired and the white flag is raised. At any time past 45 seconds the white flag is dropped to officially start the race.

The boats fire their engines and accelerate from a dead stop to top speed of 50 – 135 mph in the straight away (depending on the class) as they speed toward the first turn. Boats jockey for position passing each other in the straightaway and turns, running only inches apart from each other. At the conclusion of the race the overall class winner takes a victory lap with the checkered flag. Fans cheer for their favorite boat or driver and we encourage interaction between the fans and the drivers during every race.
