The 2010 Hydro-Turf APBA National Tour moves to Belle River, Canada this weekend, July 17-18, and promises one of the biggest purses of the summer for PWC racers. This marks the first time in a decade that the national tour has ventured north of the border.

Dubbed the Naut Wukin Racing Eastern Canadian Nationals, the race is offering a $30,000 cash purse, a number which should bring out an impressive field of racers. The race is happening in conjunction with the 16th Annual SunSplash Festival, an event that includes a classic car show, parade, lawnmower races (yeah, you read right), arts and crafts, and live entertainment throughout the weekend.
