For the first time, the city will host the AMSOIL Powerboat Championship.

The race will take place on the Superior Bay near Barkers Island.

Some of the fastest, high performance boats will hit the water, reaching speeds of 135 miles per hour to take home to title.

“We feel it’s something that the Northland has never seen,” AMSOIL Speedway board member Joe Stariha said. “It’s going to be something that a lot of people are going to want to see based upon just watching some of the stuff online and how fast these boats go.”

The race will run September 19-20 from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

It is free and open to the public.
