Saturday, June 29th the NBRA (National Boat Racing Association) North/South Shoot Out on Lake Lucas will welcome boats and pilots from across the country for the second annual event. Two full days of boat action will conclude with the feature events held on Sunday, June 30th. The purpose of the National Boat Racing Association is to, actively promote the sport of stock and modified outboard hydroplane and runabout racing by encouraging and advancing safety, increase the awareness of the sport and expanding its competition. The boats are much different than the drag boats as these are small boats where the pilot kneels while driving in an elongated circle. This type of boat racing is similar to the setup of dirt racing. They will run multiple "heat" races with several boats on the water at once and then run a final feature to end the show.
