Eastpointe, MI – The APBA is excited to announce the newest Tour stop on the 2010 APBA
Watercross National Tour ? Belle River, Canada. It has been more than 10 years that a
National event has been held in Canada and the APBA is excited to see racing return to Eastern
Canada. The event will take place on July 17-18, 2010 at Lakeview Park in Belle River Canada.
Belle River is just across the border from Detroit, Michigan not far from Windsor Canada. The
event will be held the week after the Harbor Beach, Michigan national event that will make it
easy for racers to attend and save on travel expenses.
The Belle River
event will be a
great race with a
HUGE cash purse
that is expected to
be the largest
offered in many
years. Belle River
is an historic town
in beautiful Lakeshore bordering Lake St. Clair. With an
abundance of sights to see, things to do, and places to shop,
Belle River is an ideal location to host an event. Minutes away are great marine and golf
resorts, inviting beaches, camping, museums, conservation areas, and historic buildings.
Lakeview Park is a first class facility with a pristine white sandy beach and many great
amenities. The city recently received a 3 million grant to upgrade Lakeview Park, so you can
expect many new features to the already beautiful facility.
The event will take place within the boundaries of Lakeview
Park on Lake St. Clair and run in conjunction with the 16th
Annual SunSplash Festival. In addition to professional
watercross racing the annual festival features a classic Car
Cruise with over 500 classic cars that will line the eleven
blocks of downtown. Just a sampling of the other events
includes: a carnival with rides, parade, vendor booths, arts and crafts, refreshment tent with free
fun and continuous entertainment including live bands that start Friday night and will dazzle you
right through Sunday.
The 2010 APBA Watercross National Tour will also have stops in Parker, Arizona – Myrtle
Beach, South Carolina; Harbor Beach, Michigan; Colonial Beach, Virginia; and finish off the
season with the APBA Watercross Nationals in Nashville, Tennessee. The APBA is searching
for one more West Coast stop to complete the 2010 schedule. The APBA has worked hard,
together with its race promoters, to find some of the best race sites in the country with nice
beaches, clean water and fun locations. The 2010 National Tour will have over $90,000 in cash
and prizes up from grabs in 2010.
