    Copy and paste from the website. Lake Racer



    Beginner Racers!

    If you have a lake boat and want to see what it's like to

    run down the liquid quarter mile, then you're in the

    right place. Run your boat in our Lake Racer Class

    and make as many passes as you want over the

    weekend, with no eliminations. Bring all your buddies

    who want to race, to see who's quickest and fastest!

    To run in this class, you will need the following:

    * rope guard (deflector)

    * lanyard kill switch

    * life jacket

    * helmet

    The Lake Racer class costs $150 for the weekend;

    · does NOT include association membership.
    · $150 entry fee, no SDBA membership fee required for one race season, each racer receives 1 Driver, 3 Crew and 1 Vehicle pass per race
    During the race, if you decide you want to race in a

    Sportsman class, we will apply your Laker Racer entry

    fee towards your SDBA membership, and you'll start

    earning points toward your Sportsman class

    championship.

    The Lake Racer Class is limited to

    boats 80 mph or slower. Please call or email if you

    have any questions.

    Default Waco Race Rescheduled....

    WACO DUEL ON THE BRAZOS UPDATE - 5/15/2015 - 12:40 PM

    Here is the "UNOFFICIAL / OFFICIAL" status of the upcoming race in Waco..

    I met with city staff at the park yesterday and they are all good with whatever we want to do as it relates to the park. The river is about a foot above normal but the current makes it... in my opinion unsafe in the event a boat went down and difficult to manage the equipment that we put into the water.

    I spent time on the phone with a 30-year staff member with the Corp of Engineers that monitors the flow of water coming out of the watershed and lakes above Waco and his opinion was that given the fact that Lake Aquilla (between West and Hillsboro) was over 5' above normal level and that Lake Waco was at almost 3' over normal, he stated that it would be at least 10 days or more before the current at Brazos Park East would be back to "normal." Lake Whitney discharge was not of concern as their release would be minimal at the current time, however, if more rains pour into the area West of I-35.. North of Waco, it could affect the current in the river.

    After contacting the City and with tons of phone calls to Rae Beth who was in contact with the board, it is decided that the race is RESCHEDULED for JUNE 5-7, 2015.

    The Board of Directors is aware that some may have conflicts with graduations, etc., but I can assure you that their interest is to give you a race in this area so that you can be ready for Wheatland and the rest of the schedule that follows....

    Yvonne Tucker​ is working on the "OFFICIAL" Notice that will be sent out by Group E-Mail later today or in the morning.

    There are other events happening in Waco that weekend in June so please go ahead and make your reservations. Rae Beth will be contacting the host hotel later today to see if they will honor the same rate for the alternate date so give her some time to negotiate that for you before you call.

    I hate that it has to be moved... but I think that the Board is looking out for the best interest of all of those involved by making this decision this early. You'll have to admit.. it's way better than already being on the way here and having it cancelled or getting set up and having to cancel during the weekend.

    Please call Randy Ball or Rae Beth if you have any questions and please SHARE this post and call those that you might know who were making the pull so that their plans can be changed accordingly.

    See you in 3 weeks....

    With Lake Waco at +17' and Whitney at +19' I don't think they will race in July on that river.
