LUCAS OIL MISSION BAY BAYFAIR, SAN DIEGO CA. Sept. 14,15,16, 2012
NJBA LAKE MING, BAKERSFIELD CA. Sept. 22, 23, 2012
Lucas Oil Mission Bay Event Edelbrock Boats competing:
Chris Starkweather: Edelbrock Race Team, Edelbrock Nitrous, QwikData 2
Jordan Woods: QwikData 2, 18 Deg. Big Victor Cylinder heads, Big Victor 2 Intake Manifold, Edelbrock Nitrous
This is historically a big event in San Diego sponsored by Lucas Oil. The hot weather inland drew an especially large crowd to the bay this year to watch the boats. This event has classes of boats including Unlimited Hydroplanes and Off Shore Boats running on a open course at speeds close to 200 mph, K Boats, Outboard F1 Boats and Jet skis on a smaller course and Drag Boats including 250mph Top Fuelers running on a 1/4 mile stretch of beach. All the racing is very visible from the beach.
This is not an NJBA point’s race so not a lot of our regular west coast customers were competing. Attending this event was a good opportunity to market some of our products to the Lucas Oil Series Racers. Chris Starkweather and Jordan Woods are great about showing off the Edelbrock products on their boats and explaining the advantages they bring.

I was only able to attend this event on Saturday. The interest in Edelbrock products is continuing to increase. QwikData 2 is extremely popular and recognized as a must have product in boat racing. I expect several orders during this year’s off season. Most every Nitrous boat is equipped with our systems and I am also recently noticing an increase in cylinder head inquiries.
