2005/2006

 

Our racing experience began in 2005 and 2006 as “Racing For The Kids” with races in Lake Wales on the shores of the Florida Lions Camp at Tiger Lake. This was done as a fundraiser for the camp to raise money for maintenance and repairs after the 3 hurricanes in 2004. These races were a mixture of stock and pro’s in conjunction with Peace River Outboard.

2007

 

2007 began “Race For The Kids”. This race we held at Lake Wales, also benefiting the Florida Lions Camp. The camp is for children and adults with varying abilities. This was in conjunction with the Title Series.


2008

 

2008, “Race For The Kids’ held a race in conjunction with the USTS also at Lake Wailes and the proceeds went to the Kiwanis of Lake Wales. Their project was “Barney’s Dream” an all inclusive playground for children with varying abilities.


Also, in 2008 we held the “Worlds 08” Championship Race in Lake Alfred. The City of Lake Alfred, Lake Alfred Lions Club and the Auburndale Boy Scout Troop 115 all benefited from this.

2009

 

Unfortunately, in 2009 with the economic problems we did not hold any race. But during this time we became a non-profit (501c3) organization and became “RACE FOR THE KIDS FOUNDATION”.


2010

 

March 2010 we held a stock outboard and one Pro class race again on Lake Wailes in Lake Wales. This time we donated to Keep Polk County Beautiful and a church youth group.  Keep Polk County Beautiful website is www.keeppolkcountybeautiful.org

 

We diligently worked toward the “Worlds 10”, also in Lake Alfred. The date for this race was October 22nd – 24th, 2010. Entires from around the world were represented from Italy, Germany, Hungary, Estonia, China, Austria, Holland and of course, the USA!

 

2011

 

We have been working to secure a site in 2011, but due to economic conditions, we have not succeeded.

2012 & 2013 & 2014

We were racing in Winter Haven in 2012, 2013 and 2014!  It was a great site to race!  We also were at Lake Alfred - also an incredible race site.  We once again held the Worlds in 2014 at Lake Alfred!  Anyone that wasn't there for that race missed great racing!


2015 & 2016
We were racing at Lake Alfred Park with our host - Lake Alfred Lions Club.  2015 we had issues with the weather and we were only able to race a few classes on Saturday.  Sunday was cancelled.  In 2016 - we were able to put on a two-day event with testing on Friday!  The Lions Club held a Meet & Greet on Friday night and Saturday we had our banquet in their facility.  Thank you Lions Club for all that you did!

2017

The USTS is back racing at Lake Alfred Park on April 21, 22 and 23, 2017!  Come stop by and see us!
