Do you want to race boats? You can! The NBRA Novice classes are a great place to start! They are entry level classes designed to allow new racers to safely gain experience driving a race boat as they learn valuable skills such as race course awareness and starting procedures. Boat racing is a very fun, family oriented sport. Many of our race teams have several generations out on the water with the youngest participants starting as early as 9 years old! A lot of our best drivers started in the Novice classes, but it's not just for kids. Adults that are looking to get into the sport benefit from it as well! We recommend that anyone without boat racing experience start off in the Novice classes and graduate as they get comfortable safely handling their boat in racing conditions.

 Do you want to try it, but don't know if you will enjoy it? Come to a race and talk to the drivers in the pits! All of the racers are excited to talk to people and teach them what racing is all about! You will likely find someone that is willing to let you jump in their boat and try it out. But, be careful...once the racing bug bites you, you're hooked! Come check us out and join our racing family!

Lake Striker Test Run Aug. 26, 2023

Several Texas Race teams met at Lake Striker to put on a test run for a possible race for the 2024 Season. What a day it was! Lot's of interest from the town and plenty of  spectator's turned out to check us out. This site has plenty to offer with a great pit area, plenty of spectator areas, covered judges stand, on site restaurant, RV hook ups, and on site cabins / hotel rooms. The water was great and big enough to do the famous Texas Triangle!
