National Boat Racing Association


WELCOME to the official site of the National Boat Racing Association. A site dedicated to the enjoyment and racing of Stock and Modified (Mod) outboard hydroplanes and runabouts.

Our site is packed with information about racing these boats, joining our racing family and our upcoming events.
Melissa Backward, Jeff Ruth and Len Miller in association with the director of the Clarksville, Arkansas Chamber of Commerce have finalized plans for the North South championship race on May 15 through the 17th at Lake Ludwig. This lake is an ideal size for boat racing and offers great viewing opportunities. We will break up into two equal teams drivers select the class that they believe they will score the most points in on Saturday the winning team will have the name of the drivers placed on a plaque that will be placed in the chamber office Jeff Ruth said that he was set up a 1 mile course so dig in the prop box for a long course.

OBRA is excited to announce that Ray Rodda will be announcing their thunder on Wolf Creek race June 19 through the 21st

Note that the dates have changed on the Garnett, Kansas race to July 17th, 18th and 19th.

Please be advised the 25 Mod class has been reinstated starting this 2015 season. Until the rule book catches up with this development use the 2012 Rule Book for details if needed as the 25 Mod will be run under those same rules.

The competition may only last for three laps but the friendships made here will last forever.  There are clubs all across the United States and everyone is welcome to come and join us at a race.  We frequently offer classes about racing at our events and perhaps you will choose to join us.  Those who complete ground school successfully may receive the opportunity to take a ride in one of these amazing boats.
