Lewisville, TX: The Pro Watercross Tour’s “Liberty Cup” event scheduled for July 17-19 at Lewisville Lake in Lewisville, Texas has been cancelled due to historically-high water levels.
Unprecedented rainfall in May led to the lake swelling to a historic high of 537.02 feet. According to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, it may take a couple of months for the water level to fall to normal. The lake is closed to boaters in order to survey damage and ensure lake safety before allowing boaters back in the water.
Pro Watercross Tour was to make its first visit to North Texas for the event. The annual tour visits lakes and beaches across the country each summer. It is the featured national tour for personal watercraft racing, combining the finest professional and amateur athletes in the United States and internationally for extreme racing on challenging closed courses. Tour events draw thousands of spectators on site, plus millions more for television and online video broadcasts.
