FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE… June 16th, 2011
What: RIVA Racing HydroDrags
Where: USA Water Ski Complex, Polk County, Florida (Same as last year)
When: November 4th-6th (10am – 4pm)
Attention all Drag Racers, Freestylers and Slalom Riders…The 2011 RIVA Racing HydroDrags presented by Sea-Doo and X-Scream will be held at the USA Water Ski Complex in Polk County, Florida, November 4th-6th. This year, the event will feature a trio of powersports, “Speed Alley” radar run, a bikini contest, live music, Hooter Girls, and plenty of giveaways. This event will attract thousands from far and wide across the USA and beyond vying for a share of the $5,000 cash and prize purse, 2 USA National Titles and one prestigious International Title. There will be four separate events this year, including the US “Flatwater Freestyle” National Championships, Crazy Ramp Jump, Speed Alley, Dual Slalom National Championships, and the Drag Racing World Cup Championships as recognized by the International Jet Sports Boating Association (IJSBA).
The current RIVA Racing HydroDrag Pro Champion is Julio Rivera of Puerto Rico, who also had a Speed Alley radar run of over 100 mph two seasons ago. There will be four divisions in the Drag Racing program this year which will include Hydro Box Stock, Hydro Pro Stock, Hydro Super Stock, and finally Hydro Unlimited which will feature a Cash Purse and only the first 50 entries will be accepted in the Hydro Unlimited Class. The Drag Racing will take place on Saturday and Sunday and there will be practice on Friday afternoon only between 1pm and 4pm.
The Flat-water Freestyle Championships will feature 3 Classes, Junior, Amateur and Pro, subject to IJSBA rules (and there will be a technical inspection after the event). The qualifying for both of these classes will be on Saturday and the Finals on Sunday, with the Pro class earning a cash purse. Although this is a new event to the Hydro-Drags a lot of the top US Pro Freestylers like Jason “The Destroyer” Stoyer, Jeremy “Parr Daddy” Parr, and Michael “Rat Tat Tatti” Ratti will be in attendance vying for the coveted title of the IJSBA USA National Freestyle Champion.
This also is the first time that the HydroDrags will feature the Dual Slalom competition and we are bringing it back by popular demand. The Slalom completion will boast 6 popular classes…Ski Stock, Ski Modified, Sport Open, Runabout Stock, and Pro Runabout Open. This competition will be held on Saturday morning and the complete schedule is attached to this release. FYI…Admission to this event is $5.00 per day or $10.00 for a weekend pass and Pit Passes will be available onsite for $25.00 for the weekend. Interested racers and competitors must have their entry forms in no later than October 20th to avoid a hefty late fee. Spectators are encouraged to bring their own seating and plenty of tanning butter. Finally, there will be a “Racer’s Party” on Saturday night at Hooter’s / Lakeland West across the street from the host hotel in which everyone is invited! Entry forms may be obtained by contacting Mike Young at email@example.com. Hope to see you there!!!
