There was a time when you could witness crazy speedboat racing near Casper. This vintage 8 mm video shows a glimpse at what that was like.

This video was just dropped on YouTube this week. It's a true flashback to a different era when speedboat racing was right in Casper's backyard. According to the description, it's shared directly from this person's personal home movie collection. Here's a tidbit of what they recall about this event:

One team is named "Woods Racing Team". Other names shown in the film are Billy Seebold and Bob McFarland.

The APBA speedboat races are still very much a thing. Unfortunately, the Casper area is not on their schedule anymore.

Do you remember these races? If so, share details and memories of what you recall.
