TSR Showdowns Breaking Records!
Two weeks into the Cablewakeboard.com National Points Chase and TSR has hosted the two largest Thursday Night Showdowns in the seven-year history of the weekly grassroots event. Week one saw 50 riders for the weekday evening event, a record at that point. Because of the large amount we decided to move the start time to 5pm in hopes that the attendance would grow. Good thing we did because on Thursday night TSR had 61 riders to role through in just under four hours. In 2010 the TSR cable showdowns have set standards that have never been equaled by boat or cable showdowns of the past. None of this would be possible without the great support group at TSR and the wonderful Texas riders that enjoy pushing each other and the sport!
