A July 18th press release from IJSBA reads that the organization is excited to announce that East Coast Watercross will host the 2018 U.S. National Championships on August 25-26 at Clute Memorial Park in Watkins Glen, NY.
The National Championships were slated to be held in Chicago. However, it became apparent that the location would not have adequate space for pit crews due to the venue reducing the space. IJSBA is thankful for P1 Aqua X bringing this flaw in the venue to their attention. East Coast Watecross quickly stepped in and took the reigns and got it together in order to host the 2018 competitors. The group was also able to give racers plenty of time to change their travel plans.
The competition will be comprised of some of the top Personal Watercraft racers competing in Closed Course and Freestyle events as they vie for the Number 1 plate at the 2018 Blowsion World Finals and the 2019 season.
Twenty-six categories are set in the contest and champions will be crowned in each one. Super Chicken ( Kawasaki SC650) will be recognized by the IJSBA for the first time as an eligible category for championship glory. IJSBA thanks P1 Aqua X for all of the hard work they have put into the last two U.S. National Championships.
