Racine Extreme Presents:

Blarney Island's "Thunder on the Chain"

Midwest Grassroots Style Drag Boat Racing at its Best!

Welcome back Race Fans for our 2nd year of Blarney Island's 2006 "Thunder on the Chain" Race Coverage!

Those of you who are joining Racine Extreme for the first time get ready to experience the hottest boating stop in the Midwest! Blarney Island is home to their very own "Thunder on the Chain" weekly Drag Boat races and one of the premier stops on the Chain of Lakes in Northern, IL. Blarney Island hosts some of the best entertainment and specials found in the Midwest all week long. Everyone that visits Blarney report that the parties are rock'n and a great time is had by all! If you are searching for a good time Blarney's slogan speaks for it self "A Mile From Reality".


Every Thursday night at Blarney you will find the fastest boats and pilots in the Midwest going head to head for 16 weeks on a liquid drag strip. These drivers and boats come week after week and tally points for end of season titles and to secure the bragging rights for the year as one of Blarney Islands fastest racers on water. These extreme men and women show up with everything from stock outboard boats and motors all the way up to full blown top fuel monsters strapped to not much more than sheet of plywood. When you hear these rockets on water fire up you will understand why the drag boat races have been given the name "Thunder on the Chain"


Visit Blarney Island on any Thursday evening all summer long right around 5pm and you will start to see the migration and hear the hum of outboard and inboard boats as they are all drawn to center of Grass Lake to the Island they call Blarney for the most exciting Thursday night event in the Midwest! Get your race on at "Thunder on the Chain"!
