A few hundred spectators gathered along the Atlantic City shores, near the old Resorts Casino Hotel, for the Pro Watercross National Tour event on Saturday and Sunday. This was the tour’s first time in Atlantic City and it didn’t disappoint. The event was free and opened to the public. The fans in attendance enjoyed all the thrills, spills, backflips and barrel rolls all weekend long.

The showcase featured amateur races, along with a freestyle event in which competitors were judged on the quality and execution of their tricks instead of their racing.

Chris Macclugage from Naples, Florida finished first in the Pro-Am Ski GP. Jimmy Wilson from Sanford, NC finished second and Rick Sherker from Doylestown, PA finished third.

Dustin Farthing from Acworth, Georgia finished first in the Pro-Am R/A Box Stock. Tim Ducat from Belleview, Florida finished second and Troy Synder from Bradenton, Florida finished third.

Atlantic City is the fifth stop on the Pro Watercross Tour’s seven-week circuit that culminates with the PWT National Championships on August 21 and 22 in Charleston, West Virginia, and the Pro Watercross World Championships in Naples, Florida, from September 20th to the 25th.

Between the crowd and the amazing stunts, many feel the tour will return to Atlantic City next year and many other years to come.
