17 Nov, 2014
Pro Watercross Tour will make its first visit to North Texas when the popular racing circuit comes to Lewisville Lake in 2015 under an agreement with Lewisville Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The event, being called “The Liberty Cup,” will be held July 17-19 at Lewisville Lake Park with an opening-day Corporate Challenge followed by two days of professional racing. Competitors will contend for cash and other prizes and earn points toward the overall tour championship.
“Lewisville Lake is a tremendous tourism asset and we’re always looking for ways to bring more visitors and activity to the lake,” said Lewisville CVB Director James Kunke. “The Pro Watercross Tour is a great opportunity for us and we’re excited to bring such a high-profile event to the area.”
The annual Pro Watercross Tour visits lakes and beaches across the country each summer. It is the featured national tour for personal watercraft racing, combining the finest professional and amateur athletes in the United States and internationally for extreme racing on challenging closed courses. Tour events draw hundreds of spectators on site, plus thousands more for television and online video broadcasts.
