Boat racers gear up for ‘Duel on the Brazos’


The Duel on the Brazos is back in Waco after three years!

Dozens of contestants tested the waters on Friday as they prepared for two days of races.

Drag racing is an exciting sport which takes boats from a standing stop to 150 – 220 miles an hour on water. The event is expected to draw thousands this weekend.

“There is over 100 boats pre-registered, and this is just one of the greatest places to race because of the back drop and the cliffs. It’s very competitive here, and [there’s] a lot of history here. They have been racing here since the ’80s and we are back now. We are pretty excited to be here.”

The Duel on the Brazos ends on Sunday. Tickets for the event will be sold on East Brazos for $30 each day and $50 for both. Kids 12 and under can go for free!
