Bristol Motor Speedway was not the only great racing colosseum the weekend of April 13-15th in the Tri-Cities! #beatnightfall at NoliFest had lots of action in the 8 mile enduro style course down the Nolichucky Gorge.

There were a total of 25 athletes in the inaugural event and Shane Benedict cheered from the side as the honorary sweep.  The river level was near 1,400 CFS, which was a decent medium flow for the run from Popular, NC to USA Raft Outpost near Erwin, TN (The site of NoliFest).  The GO FAST event was a mass start at the put-in and first one down to the USA Raft landing was the winner!  The real interesting part of the event was the BoaterX did not start till late in the evening at 7:00 PM, so athletes only had about an hour and a half to complete the course before the ran out of daylight.

Athlete’s spirits were high and motivated to go fast when the 3..2..1..GO countdown went down and huge wake was created in the pool at launch!  Rubbing was part to of this BoaterX event as athletes jostled for positions down the course.

There were a few good rowdy moments for sure!  The winning time ended up being right at 1 hour and everyone finished the course before darkness set in for the night.  Good times, good times!!

Last Wed evening saw a great crew come out to compete in a slalom type race on the south channel of the Reno White Water Park.  5 months into the 2017 water year and we have already broken the record for most precipitation since records have been kept.  For example, last year we had about 500 cfs for our first throwdown, on Wed it was 5,000 cfs and has been for over a month.
