On September 9, 2023, the Upper Midwest Powerboat Association ended its season in Fremont, Wis. To set the landscape of the course, between the start and finish, there are three different restaurants with river deck viewing and the finish line ends in front of the Web Footers Water Ski Team grandstands. With more than 50 entries, the racers and the more than 1,000 spectators came out in full force as the weather held off on a sunny 75-degree day. Mercury power took first place finishes in five out of the six classes run.
The results of the final race in the UMPBA 2023 season are listed below. Stay tuned as the UMPBA looks to expand for the 2024 season!
