The Mid-America Summer Nationals will take place July 28 and 29, at Chouteau Bend Recreation Area on Grand River in Chouteau. The race is being promoted by Green Country Drag Boat LLC., and sanctioned by the Southern Drag Boat Association (SDBA), the oldest and largest drag boat sanctioning body in the nation. More than 100 race teams will compete on the liquid quarter-mile, making the Mid-America Summer Nationals one of the largest drag boat races in the nation. The event is comprised of 12 racing classes of competition ranging from personal water craft (Jet Ski) to Top Fuel Hydro, and speeds ranging from 70 miles per hour to over 240 miles per hour. The Chouteau Bend Recreation Area offers an up-close view of the races, as well as large shade trees that keep the hot Oklahoma sun and July heat at bay while spectators watch Top Fuel Hydro’s try to set new world records. “Show-N-Shine,” an event showcasing featured drag boats is July 27, on Main Street in downtown Chouteau from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
