    Yep, watched it there back in the day....I agree it's probably the best for spectators but Margitaville would be a good alternative if it would entice more race teams. WP would probably prefer Margitaville since it's a less traveled part of the lake vs downstream

    It would attract the same amount of racers, unless margaritaville would offer a dumb amount of money for travel

    What are the issues? Who is getting in the way? Is there a group that is attempting to hold this event hostage? It seems like it is a great event on an off week that brings a ton of cash to the lake area.

    You did notice there were quite a bit of subtle changes .... No Major Sponsor, No Nikki, No Alvin....... Seems odd ....

    They are blaming Covid, but it sure seems like there is more to the story.

    I thought something was up. Organizationally, things seemed missing this year. Planning meetings we had in the past, we did not have this winter. Lake Race socials were missing.
