There's not much we love more than going to the lake during the summer here in Texas. But, going to the lake to watch speed boat races could very well top that. That's just what you'll get at Lake Nasworthy, in San Angelo, at The Showdown in San Angelo.

Just imagine the adrenaline that goes through each racer as they go side by side at about 250 miles per hour in this 'liquid quarter mile' event. Considering it's going to be really hot this summer, might as well enjoy it at the lake while watching these crazy athletes go for the glory.
