Currently, the forecast is calling for clouds on Saturday as well as rain on Sunday, but Wolsey explained a little rain won’t stop the competitors.

“The weather seems to be changing daily so who knows what the heck it’ll do,” said Wolsey. “It definitely won’t scare anyone, everyone will throw the rain suits on and away we go.”

The event starts at 6:00 p.m. on Friday with registration and the show and shine. Featured at the boat launch will be a beer garden all weekend.

Races start on Saturday at 9:00 a.m. at Peace Island Park.
