IMPORTANT SITE INFORMATION

PARKING/RACE SITE LOCATION CHANGE

Due to extenuating circumstances, the location for the race this weekend has been changed to South Indiana and the Boardwalk.


USE SOUTH INDIANA AVE FOR PIT PARKING - the pit parking area will be the fenced in area in between S Indiana and S Dr Martin Luther King Blvd. DO NOT USE MARTIN LUTHER KING 


If you are arriving prior to Friday, please call Nick at 585-794-6549, as we continue to work through the evolving specifics for the new location

RACE SITE LOCATION:

S Indiana Ave and the Boardwalk, AC, NJ

Please note that the race site and pit parking change was a result of the Army Corps of Engineers installing a 30” pipe from the beach extending into the ocean approximately 100’, which would have created a hazard for our competitors.


This pipe was not scheduled to be installed until after the event this weekend, city’s officials and the Atlantic City Sports Commission have bent over backwards to find Pro Watercross and its competitors this new race site location and secure parking.


We are incredibly thankful to Atlantic City and the Atlantic City Sports Commission for all of their help and support over the last week.
