    Default Menomonie Drags July 28th

    UMPBA presents QTR Mile dragboat racing. Saturday July 28th

    UMPBA will be hosting 1/4 drags on Lake Menomon located in Menomonie WI. This is located 1hr East of Minn/St Paul MN just off I-94. and the races will take place at Wauconda Park. This a great venue and will be our first year here and want to make this a great event. The city of Menomonie is excited to have us and gonna help in making this a great event. There is a campground close by but I'm not sure what is available for that weekend. There are many hotels but we have worked out a deal with the Super 8 to give racer discounts and provide extra parking just for boats. We have chosen this location hoping to encourage some new faces to join us or just attend. Menomonie has alot to offer, many bars and resturaunts within walking distance of hotels as well as this is the weekend of the Dunn County Fair. There will be stock car races Fri night and NTPA tractor pulls on Sat night. We are looking forward to everyone joining us and helping us make this an annual event. You can check out our web site at UMPBA.org
