Lake Dallas, Texas – The Lake Dallas Watercross Jet Ski Championships will be held at the city’s Willow Grove Park on Saturday, July 7 through Sunday, July 8, 2012. Exciting watercross races will fill the park along the shores of Lake Lewisville.

This year’s 2-day race organized by R5WaterXRacing, a regional jet ski race promoter in Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and New Mexico, will feature some of the world’s fastest and greatest riders in ski (stand up) and runabout (sit-down) style watercraft reaching speeds in excess of 85 plus mph as they negotiate around a technical closed course track that pits racer versus machine and water conditions.

R5WaterXRacing owner Brian Smith, himself a professional jet skier and National Champion from the 2010 International Jet Sports Boating Association Endurance Nationals, is the race’s organizer and said of the area, “Lake Lewisville has always proved to be a very challenging body of water to race in as it gets rough and unpredictable – a prime spot to hold jet ski races.”

Food vendors will feature menus with a variety of choices for all tastes and visitors are encouraged to bring their beach chairs and plan for a fun day at the lake. A $5 gate fee will be charged for each vehicle and the boat launch will be closed to the public during the event. First-time jet ski racers are welcome to enter the beginner class and their first race is free.
