Rony Rawk Racing
The Sacandaga River. Benson, NY. The Saturday evening awards banquet will be held at a local establishment in a banquet room.
This race is I.J.S.B.A. & N.E.W.A. Sanctioned & will be a N.E.W.A. bonus round. Final standing points based upon timed run will count towards overall Region 8 Jetski tour points for the 2014 Closed-course race season.
1.) The race will be executed on a tributary river that flows into The Great Sacandaga Lake.
2.) Start/Stop will be same point with a closed loop run.
3.) The waterway consists of a half mile up-river run and half mile back thru a diverted side stream aptly named "Riders Choice".
4.) Although the concept sounds intimidating, this particular waterway is honestly not as violent as you may imagine. Those who have ridden rapids before will find the descent entertaining rather than dangerously exciting.
5.) Racers will compete for the best time in their respective classes. Every racer in each class will get three runs down - your best time is your score. Class structures are as follows;
Ski stock spec
X2 800 spec
6.) The awards ceremony will be held at the host establishment in a banquet room the same evening of the races - Top three racers in each class will receive trophies. All entrants will receive participation decals and a “Swagbag” of promotional goodies from our sponsors.
7.) We are currently finalizing, entry fees, awards & banquet costs, so again, as soon as we have that hammered out, we will post further details when available or visit :
8.) Registration is ON-SITE the day-of only, but please feel free to post on forums, message boards, Facebook, Twitter, or elsewhere to spread the word that you are attending this groundbreaking event.
