A beautiful sunny Saturday was perfect for boat racing in the prairie, specifically at a man made lake that used to be a quarry, at the county fairgrounds, in Springfield Ohio.
The boats started from the ‘beach’, which meant their support team has to hold them in place then try not to get blasted by the water when they take off.
While focused on the boats, in the end the water spray patterns added to the photos.
There were two classes of boats, all with great paint jobs.
The boats could corner at nearly 100 MPH.
This boat lead his entire race until the last lap.
When he got caught up in lapped traffic and was passed down the final straight.
