    Come on all you upper midwest hot boaters, these guys are truly the best bunch of lake racers who now actually have orgainized drag race events. While the majority of the fast boats in this orgainization are outboards, these guys are open and welcoming to all types of boats. There are a few v-drives (myself included) and jets, outdrives.....all are welcome. In addition to the actual race schedule, I will be orgainizing a WEEKLY week day after work on the water get together during our short (June/July/August) boating season. Anyone interested please PM Chet or myself. Jocko (Dave)

    Is this group affiliated with APBA? I have to send in my membership and register the boat soon and they used to ask for local affiliations. I'm not sure if they do that or if this club is affiliated. I know Muscatine has a APBA sanctioned event, but it isn't a race.
    So many projects, so little time

    It's certainly not a requirement for fun and from the sounds of it, you have a good crowd of people and the good times to show for it. I hope to see you guys around when I get back. Maybe I'll be back in time for Omaha.

    Here is our class breakdown, as long as there are two similar boats wee will make a class to accommodate them. Upper Midwest Power Boat Association - Classes and Requirements

    Here are our rules.Upper Midwest Power Boat Association - Rules and Regulations

    Like I said it's simple but effective.

    Thanks for the welcome Troy. In the past it has been only outboards that have been at the races so the v-drives and jets are fairly new to us but so far we like them and the crowd loves them. It has become a fun rivalry between the outboards and car motor boats pushing each other to maximize our setups.

    Our first race in Jewell IA is going to be a complete blast. From what I have heard most of us racers are planing on camping out right at the race site for the weekend to enjoy the beer garden, BBQ cook off, band, and car show I have also heard a rumor of a bikini contest of some sort.

    Well I need to get out to the shop so I can get some work done on this years race boat I need to step up my game for the car motor boats.

    I sure hope to meet you on the water this summer.

    I just walked in from the shop, I sent a email back. Thank you, I can't wait to see you on the water so you better get to work

    You guys with the v-drives and jets better be on your game this year. As a outboard driver I felt the need to try something a little different to compete with you.

    Just a sneak peek.

    I dig what you are doing with your hull. I would like to come over and see it in person.

    Wait till you see my viper launch with the nitrous, it tends to lean a little bit

    You are welcome to come down anytime. I have it flipped over right now and hope to have the bottom painted in two weeks then I can finish the deck.
