UWP Tour Heads To Racine; Sea-Doo Ups Bounty Allowance To Match APBA TourBy Jeff Hemmel
Stop #3 of the UWP-IJSBA National Tour heads to Racine, Wisconsin this weekend, with racers taking on the waves of mighty Lake Michigan. Spectators are urged to bring their beach chairs and enjoy free admission to check out the racing off Racine’s North Park. The event is part of the Toyota U.S. Grand Prix of Watercross, and will pay out over $15,000 in cash and prizes for winners of select Pro-Am and Expert classes.
UWP also just announced that they have moved forward with a proposed “Tour Point Champion” program, which will allow participants in non-tour classes to gain points toward a championship. Tour Points Champions will be decided from Rounds 1-6, with the National Champion title reserved solely for the National Championship race in Charleston, West Virginia.
Last but not least, Sea-Doo officials have decided to elevate the UWP-IJSBA National Tour and National Championship to the next level in the company’s Bounty program to match the APBA National Tour and Championship. Plain and simple, that means Sea-Doo pilots now stand to earn more money at these events, a fact that should make life on the road a little bit easier.

And now, to give you a taste of UWP tour action, here are some highlights of the tour’s opening round in Panama City, FL. Yes, I know it’s labeled Racine for some reason…but trust me, that’s Florida.
