    Joe... any discussion or possibility of sanctioned Drag event at these shows...?..I emailed NEWA in early Dec. before they start scheduling for 2013....no response...website's still 2012 for race sched...

    I find it ridiculous that such a growing sport in PWC racing cannot be included even as a side show or small event as part of the watercross series...

    Water cond problems?...tide issues...? Ins risk ?

    Maybe you would not get a turnout of racers like Fla (50-100) ...but 20-30 and a few classes absolutely..

    Gonna call this week and see what's up,,,,

    Dave,

    This is only the second year for newa to do a 3 race schedule. This is all volunteer work. The runner of newa was out of the country for the entire month of December. I know nothing about drag racing. Is it ijsba sanctioned?

    Great to see some events up there. Best of luck with a successful second season.
    Mr. Jetdave, get out there and give the buoys a shot. Feel the full potential of your ski.
