wake the lake 2020


The APBA kneeldown outboard categories have been invited to present demonstration races for our format of family-friendly, financially accessible racing in conjunction with the Wake the Lake F1 Tunnel Boat races at Champions Park Lake in Springfield, OH at the Clark County Fairground.  

Due to a fixed race schedule covering many spectator events we have a limited set of windows each day to race.  For 2020 we are inviting 200MH, 350MH, 500MH, 750MH, and 800MH to join us for this exciting weekend.   Note that once the registrations are finalized we may elect to merge classes, as appropriate for schedule efficiency. 

Wake the Lake is taking precautions to administer compliance with COVID-19 social distancing protocols.  ALL RACERS, THEIR CREW, AND ATTENDEES MUST ADHERE TO PROTOCOLS OR THEY MAY BE ASKED TO LEAVE WITHOUT REFUND. Information about the COVID-19 response plan is available at http://www.wakethelakeohio.com/.

Note that for 2020, the pit location for the kneel-down categories is being relocated to the northeast corner of the lake. The property has been physically inspected and allows the racers and their crews to be socially distanced from the tailgaters and spectator areas.  Water access, viewing, race trailer, and RV proximity is excellent and we appreciate everything the Wake the Lake organizers have done to make our participation a safe and enjoyable experience!


Information about arrival and location will be sent to registered racers the week prior to the event.
