Despite plentiful rains that have now filled Lake Nasworthy to full capacity, organizers of the annual Showdown in San Angelo Drag Boat Races have confirmed that the race will still take place the weekend of September 12-14, rescheduled dates that were selected when drought conditions made the original June dates doubtful.
“Even though Lake Nasworthy is now full, Chamber and race organization staff and volunteers are behind the curve as far as race promotions, ticket sales, sponsorship solicitations and volunteer commitments for a June event,” said Chamber President Phil Neighbors.  “But the recent rains now virtually guarantee that the race venue will be excellent for September’s event.”

Tickets sales will begin on August 1st at the Chamber of Commerce office, 418 W. Avenue B, and at multiple locations throughout San Angelo.  Sponsorship opportunities are still available, and reserved RV spaces and VIP seating remain on sale at the Chamber.
