A total of 38 teams from three countries and several states converged on the Extreme Sports Park west of Port Angeles for two days of racing in late July, in the biggest American Sprint Boat Racing event held locally in years.
The action was wild during qualifying race on July 29, with a harrowing rollover crash by the Jeepers Creepers boat out of Sequim.
The Jeepers Creepers boat with a crew of Teri Cummings and stepson Dillon Cummings was on its second qualifying run Saturday afternoon when the boat hit the bank, left the water, flipped over once and landed very hard on its hull.
Neither crew member got out of the boat and were attended by race officials and medics for about 20 minutes.
One member of the boat was taken out of the boat on a backboard and stretcher while the other was able to walk away.
After a delay of about 45 minutes, qualifying continued.
According to the ASBR broadcast, driver Dillon had minor injuries while navigator Teri was awake and aware and receiving medical treatment.
Teri Cummings commented on the ASBR livestream on Sunday saying she was fine.
“I’m fine, bruised lungs. really hurting. Hopefully start walking around tomorrow,” she said on the livestream.
