A friend, Mike, was at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO, and we decided to give him a visit.
We were able to park beside Mike, inside the speedway grounds. It made it very convenient access to the races.
These races were with wheels, instead, they were on the water.
I think Mike calls these, sprints. They aren't the big speeders that go 200mph, but they do reach speeds up to 80mph.
We were even close enough to wander into town every morning as we walked the dog. They have a small settler's village in the city park.
When the boats weren't in the water, they were on display.
And this isn't just a boys sport anymore.
Thank you Mike for a great introduction to water races.
