Championship caliber powerboat racing returns to Huntington, West Virginia July 26-28, 2013 and you will want to make sure you are part of the excitement surrounding the annual Huntington Classic as powerboat racing returns to downtown Huntington!
Formula 2 and Formula 3 outboard tunnel boats representing the best teams from across the U.S. and Canada will converge on Harris Riverfront Park in Huntington's downtown to compete in the third event on the 2013 American Performance Racing Superleague schedule. The events are sanctioned by the American Powerboat Association and conducted by APR Events Group, the country's premier promoter of outboard powerboat racing.
"Huntington has hosted some of the most exciting and action-packed racing on the Superleague tour in year's past and we are confident this year's event will make the fans, the citizens of the Huntington area and the racers themselves want to make Huntington an annual stop on the tour again," said Dan Ferguson, organizer of the Huntington Classic events. "We used to have powerboat racing as part of Summerfest and Ribfest at Harris Riverfront Park several years ago and we are excited to again have the opportunity to bring the highest caliber of boat racing available in American back to Huntington’s downtown riverfront park. Join us for an exciting weekend of family fun and heart-pounding entertainment."
Many corporate sponsorship packages are available for the events that can include VIP tickets to the races, your company logos on the race boats and private tours and social events with the race boat pilots. Be one of just 500 VIP ticket-holders who will spend the weekend with a front row look at all of the race action or spend some time with the race teams in the pit area as they prepare their world class boats for battle. Contact us now because only a limited number of VIP packages are available to the public.
If a lazy afternoon under a shade tree watching the race action is more your style then bring your lounge chair and an umbrella and watch a full weekend of race action on July 26-28, 2013 from the West Virginia shoreline of the mighty Ohio River at Harris Riverfront Park. Admission to all of the outdoor testing, qualifying and race events are included in your admission ticket to the Huntington Rib and Music Fest and are available at the gate or in advance from the Big Sandy Superstore Arena box office.
Make sure you and your family are part of Huntington's return as a host city for the world's premier touring series for Formula 2 and Formula 3 outboard tunnel boats. Join us for some outdoor fun at the second annual Huntington Classic!
