Tim (Hambone) told us yesterday that PWC have a class in these drag races. He seemed pretty sure that PWC will be racing in this race next weekend.

I found rules but none specifically tied to PWC. One of the rules that caught my attention was that you have to have a physical before the event, not sure if PWC would be included in that. Also another one was that part of getting licenced you had to make 2 passes by yourself infront of an offical prior to to the event. Again I dont know if that would apply to PWC. I personally dont see why it would.
PWC appears to be included, check the links I posted earlier, there are ski pics and overall points results.
Hambone told me that this is the same group that will be running in Marble falls, I cant say how possitive about that he was though. Oddly I can not find any race promotor info for the Marble falls event other than the city of Marble falls. I emailed them and asked. I did find that when click on pics from both sites that they both take you to the same exact pic sites and referance the same events. I also dont see ski info in the Marble falls event
Lake Bryan is deffenitly closer, I think its worth checking it out even if we can compete just yet.

Neither the physical or the liscensing passes pertain to the PWC classes. I am quoting from memory, but I think the E.T. requirements for those rules are 10.0 and faster.
