The Texas Outlaw Challenge, which will be held June 21–25, is in its 16th year of bringing speed boat fans from all over the country to the Lone Star State. Yesterday, registration opened. Kemah and Seabrook, which are the host towns, are already getting ready for the action, which will take place mostly on Clear Lake and Galveston Bay.
The four-day event starts with a welcome party on Thursday night. On Friday, there will be a fast-paced battle. Gary Smith and his now-fiancee Patty Rich of Lake Havasu City, Arizona, won first place in 2022 with a 175-mph run on the three-quarter-mile course in Predator III, his Skater 388 catamaran driven by twin 2,04-hp turbocharged engines from Brummett Marine in Southern California.
As speedonthewater.com has said before, Smith ran at 204.1 mph during the Desert Storm Poker Run top-speed race a week ago today. Click here if you want to join the Texas Outlaw Challenge speed race.
