History

The city's founder, Robert P. McCullough, Jr. was the first to initiate the outboard championships at Lake Havasu in 1964, and with his visionary skills, the race soon became a Lake Havasu Thanksgiving weekend tradition, drawing competitors from every corner of the globe for high stakes cash and prizes. Lake Havasu City continued to host the Lake Havasu Classic Outboard Championships through 1990.

The NGK Spark Plugs Formula 1 Powerboat Series, and its director Tim Seebold, aim to resurrect this historic event and reignite the prestige of world class powerboat racing to the city's beckoning shores.
