San Angelo: 9th Annual Showdown in San Angelo Drag Boat Races

June 26, 2015 - 8:00am to June 28, 2015 - 11:00pm

On Friday, June 26, Saturday, June 27, and Sunday June 28, 2015, San Angelo, Texas will put on its ninth annual drag boat races. Come see one of the fastest shows on the water, SHOWDOWN IN SAN ANGELO. This venue is one of the most popular of the Lucas Oil Drag Boat Series and has been seen by many of the regular boat racers and spectators as the BEST on the circuit. Boats will line up side by side and run a liquid quarter mile at speeds of up to and sometimes exceeding 250 miles per hour in less than 4 seconds. The liquid quarter mile lies between two of the most awesome spectator areas that you will see on the Lucas Oil circuit. Walk the pits and see the boats up close. Talk to the drivers and crew and see them working on the boats for the next round. Buy t-shirts, photos, cards or posters and have your favorite driver autograph them.
