If you have never seen sprint boat racing, check this out! July 28th the sprint boats show up at Extreme Sports Park in Port Angeles for the ASB Racing event. These things are insane. This racing sport is where a short little jet boat with a roll bar and running engines up to (or sometimes over) 1,000 horsepower go from 0 to 80+ mph in 3 seconds! The turn so sharp they often exceed 6Gs in force. The boat operates in 3 feet of water with the channels being only 15 feet wide. The driver and navigator are given the course layout the night before to memorize and then they attempt to be the fastest through the course!
Come up and see them! Plenty of fun for all. Food, bands and beer gardens combined with crazy racing. You can buy tickets ahead of time too.
