Peninsula Daily News

Extreme Sports Park hosts two sprint boat races Park to host U.S. Sprint Boat Association series points race and national finals championship race this summer. Here are a few tips for spectators. Watching a sprint boat race can be exhilarating. This year the Extreme Sports Park will host two U.S. Sprint Boat Association races — a series point race on Saturday, Aug. 11, and the national finals championship on Saturday, Sept. 8. As you turn into the Extreme Sports Park, located at 2917 W. Edgewood Drive in Port Angeles, you will see the main entrance gates and parking attendants directing you. Parking is plentiful and free of charge. At the entrance gates, you can purchase tickets and get your arm stamped, which will provide you access to the day’s races. “We are using entrance stamps rather than wristbands so the lines move faster to get people into the races quickly,” says Kelie Morrison, one of four owners of Extreme Sports Park. General admission tickets cost $20, which includes admission and access to the pits where the drivers, navigators and boats are located. Admission for youth 12 and younger is $10. Children 6 and younger enter for free. >>> continued on Page 3

If you have small children in your group, bring along a toy or two. Racing doesn’t seem to hold their attention and you will be able to enjoy more of the racing if you bring a bag of tricks to entertain them.

ABCs and DNFs of sprint boat racing Sprint boat racing is a timed race through a maze of channels that are three feet deep. The night before the race at the Show & Shine Tech Event (held at Price Ford Lincoln, see Page 13), the rotation through the channels is released to the race teams. For the Aug. 11 series points race and the Sept. 8 national finals championships in Port Angeles, there are three possible rotations, which are found on Page 9. By waiting until the evening before to announce which rotation they will use, teams are prevented from having an unfair advantage.

DNF, DNQ & DNS

All sprint boats have four chances to qualify for the elimination race in the afternoon. Each boat has a strict requirement to be in line and get in the water on time. If there is trouble for some reason, they are put on a 5-minute clock. If they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t resolve the problem in 5 minutes, they get a DNS or Did Not Start.

All the boats will be running the same rotation through the track. If a boat misses a turn or doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complete the course in the designated path, it gets a DNF or Did Not Finish. If a boat comes out of the water, as soon as the safety crew touches the boat, it also gets a DNF. If the boat is only out of the water a little bit, you may see the driver wave off the safety crew at first so the driver and navigator can attempt to shimmy and shake the boat back into the water. After four tries, if a boat does not complete the course in the right rotation, it gets a DNQ or Did Not Qualify. After the qualification runs, the boats with the top eight times in each class move on to eliminations. The eight boats take their first elimination run. The fastest four boats to complete the rotation accurately move on. The four run a second time, and the slowest two are cut. photo provided by TWISTED MOTORSPORTS Finally, the last two boats run a third and final time to determine first and Twisted Motorsports No. 18 driver Wayne Brown and navigator Nicole Brown race during the U.S. Sprint second place. >>> continued on Page 5 Boat Association Finals in 2011.

Boat classes

There are three classes of boats, mainly determined by engine size. The first class of boats is the Super Modified class. The Super Mods are boats with engines up to 367 cubic inches (cid). The middle group is the A-400 class with engines from 368 to 412 cid. The fastest boats are the Super Boats (also called the Unlimiteds class) with engines from 350 cid to 419 cid that are mechanically fuel-injected or multicarbureted, running on methanol. Super boats with engines 420 cid and higher have no restrictions. These are just the very basics of the sprint boat classes. To see all the specific class factors like fuel, induction and heads, visit the U.S. Sprint Boat Association website at www.ussbaracing.com.

The main focus of the race rules is safety. The safety of the drivers starts with their gear. All drivers are in a full fire suit with neck restraint and helmet. Then they are strapped into the boat with a 5-point harness and a strap to restrain their outside arm. This setup has prevented many drivers and navigators from receiving injuries when their boats roll while missing a turn. There is also a safety crew inside the track positioned along the sides and on the islands. They are there to push the boats back in the water when they get beached. You can see the crew run fast if a boat lands upside down. — by Kary Brown

RACING TO THE FINISH

Clallam County is home to three sprint boat teams whose drivers and navigators are recognized names in the racing circuit By day, you can find sprint boat drivers, navigators and crew members working behind the counter at a North Olympic Peninsula hardware store, building houses, teaching second-grade students or farming. On certain weekends you will find these same folks participating in one of the nation’s fastest growing and muddiest extreme sports — sprint boat racing. Three teams from Clallam County have made names for themselves by clinching a number of regional and national titles in the sport. The teams say they are thrilled to race on their home turf this summer at the Extreme Sports Park, 2917 W. Edgewood Drive in Port Angeles.

A series point race will be held Saturday, Aug. 11, and the association’s national finals championship will be held at the park on Saturday, Sept. 8. “We are just thrilled to host two sprint boat races, including the national finals championship, at our track,” says Kelie Morrison, one of the owners of Extreme Sports Park. “We were thrilled with how many people turned out for the race last year and promise to make this year’s races bigger and better for our participants and fans of the sport.” Kelie’s husband, Dan Morrison, drives Wicked

The Track Sprint boat tracks are man-made courses approximately 14 feet wide that hold 3 to 4 feet of water. A boat comprised of a driver and a navigator has to race against the clock as they maneuver through the watery course built around a maze of islands. The Port Angeles track is designed to be the fastest in the sprint boat circuit, allowing speeds up to 100 miles per hour in some spots. Other Northwest tracks are located in St. John, Wash., and Albany, Ore. While there is only one track, there are different course routes. The driver and navigator are given a map the night before the race, which shows the route they have to take. They have to memorize the course, which they’ll be traveling through at 90 miles per hour. They do not get to practice before the qualification runs. The driver must rely on the navigator, who communicates directions through hand signals. Mere seconds and accuracy count!

Track Rotations As the boats make their way through the course, follow along with this layout of the track. Pretty soon you’ll know when they’ve missed a turn as it happens, or which spots have been troublesome for the teams!
