This past weekend marked the 4th stop of the IWA season in beautiful Ely,MN. Although the weather was a little temperamental on Saturday, it didn’t stop the IWA from running a great race weekend along with Arena Rock cover band Hairball taking the stage Saturday night to help ring in the 10th year of racing on Fall Lake. The weekend brought some missing racers while others carried their momentum from Grantsburg and continued to post good results. With only one race left in the season and rumored big payouts in the final race, everyone will be looking to leave their mark on the 2015 Watercross season.

The final stop of the IWA will be in Rock Valley, IA August 21-22nd. For more info visit www.iwaracing.com

Brian McCurdy Jr. gave us a familiar sight while sealing the deal on the 2015 Points Championship. McCurdy Jr. now aims to go undefeated in a 5 race season which has only been done by Mark Maki if our memory serves us right.
