Firebird International Raceway’s fans turn their attention to the 1.1-mile oval of Firebird Lake for the 30th annual NAPA World Finals. During this end-of-season event, super-powered speedboats send rooster tails of water into the air as they race at speeds that approach 250 miles per hour. Elimination rounds, semifinals, and final events run throughout the day in boat classes that include Top Fuel Hydro, Sportsman, and Cracker Box. Spectators watch from a lakeside pavilion at the starting line and can wipe their faces clean after lunch with the corners of their commemorative T-shirts.
