What do stock cars speeding around the track at more than 180 miles per hour, and ski jumpers soaring through the air in excess of 200 feet have in common? They will both be featured at the Pepsi 400.
World WaterSki Pros (WWSP) has announced, together with Daytona International Speedway, they will bring the highest level of professional water skiing back to the “World Center of Racing” during the Pepsi 400 weekend, June 30-July 2.
“I have never seen these world class athletes and water ski fans so pumped as they were in February,” said WWSP president Andy Mapple. “So to be heading back to the Speedway I know we will be in for an awesome display.”
In case fans missed the water skiing exhibition in February at Lake Lloyd, the Speedway's infield lake, they will have another chance to see the action this July 4th weekend. The best professional athletes in water skiing will wow the crowd with slalom, shortboard, and jump events. These world-class athletes will hold nothing back as they demonstrate what it takes to break world records in speed, skill and distance.
“Our guests were treated to an unbelievable water ski exhibition in February,” said Robin Braig, president of Daytona International Speedway. “We are looking forward to another great show by the world-class professionals at WWSP.”
