Drag Boat Competition Set for Iowa Check this out! Finally some racing action here in the upper midwest. We (UMPBA) are having a 'test & tune' get together this Saturday at Clear Lake, MN (south of Hutchinson) and another drag race event in Fairmont, MN on August 15th. Check out the UMPBA website showing pics of previous events. Beautiful lakes and parking conditions. This is a relatively new racing club that will surely be growing. The members are mostly fast outboards, however recently some v-drives & jets are participating. Jocko
