This weekend Sulphur Springs jet ski racers Brian Snyder and Andrew Vo will travel to Somerville, Texas, to compete in the first rounds of the Jettribe Mid-America WaterX Championship series.
Brian Snyder and Andrew Vo successfully competed in this series in 2021, and after long winter hibernation, both are ready to compete. Both will be moving up a class from their beginner classes last season. Brian will move up to Ski Masters, and Andrew will be in 13-15 Lites and Ski Amateur Four Stroke Lites. They will face a formidable line-up of Texas and the Midwest region competitors. These classes will be their race classes for the next 3-4 years with many other experienced riders.
At Welch Park, Somerville Lake, the race venue will be a fun, family-friendly atmosphere with a welcome party Friday night at Hwy 36 Icehouse & Grill, live music Saturday night, and food vendors all weekend. Spectators can watch the race action on Saturday and Sunday, with primary races starting at 11:00 am each day.
