Drag Boats are back to Lake Elsinore!!

After about 10 years Drag boats are back to Lake Elsinore in the "Thunder in the Channel"


It was a cloudy chilly morning and afer a long walk to the waters edge we got to see some awesome races! The kids were great and had a fun time.



They learned to cover their ears when the races started.




Sadly we did watch one crash. It was kinda ironic because it was the first boat that had... crap I dont remember what they called it! Its kinda like a pod. Its a built in roll cage that releases from the boat if theres an accident. This is right after the crash with the water still up in the air.

Here is his pod on the rescue boat being raced to the dock for the EMT's to check him out. They said he was conscious but they rushed him to the ER.

Finally the races continued..

Some random cute pictures from the races...




ETA- SO SAD!!
We got an update on the driver of the boat that crashed. He was rushed to the ER and was in surgery for 6 hours. He is paralysed from the neck down. No work if its perminent or not. Sending prayers his way!
