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.
The public boat launch at Lakeside Memorial Park will be closed from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday to accommodate the races.
