World Series of Sprint Boat Racing Returning to U.S.A.
Brick’s Water Speedway in Poplar Bluff, Missouri to Host International Event
After 10 years abroad, the World Series of Sprint Boat Racing is returning to the United States. Brick’s Water Speedway in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, will host this United States Sprint Boat Association (USSBA) and Union Internationale Motonautique (UIM) sanctioned event on August 15-17, 2014.
More than 30 teams from four countries will be represented; countries include Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the United States. Each team will be timed as they race their boats through the world’s largest track. Many will complete the maze-like track in less than a minute, running at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour. Sprint boats are often equipped with 1500 horsepower engines, which is more horsepower than a NASCAR engine.
“Brick’s is honored to have all of these great competitors racing our track. We’ve worked hard to ensure this event shows the international community what the U.S. has to offer sprint boat racing,” said Jay Brickell, owner of Brick’s Off Road Park where the event will be held. Brickell added, “Spectators can expect an action-packed weekend, for sure!” Brick’s Off Road Park is located at 2181 County Road 484, in Poplar Bluff, Missouri.
