Kayaking's version of NASCAR where rubbin' is racin'. The Bud Light Lime 8 Ball Kayak Sprint features as many as ten kayakers pushing, shoving and rubbin' their way through a 200 meter sprint in the narrow confines of Gore Creek. Along the way, boaters must avoid being knocked off by the 8 Ball'ers - loathsome kayakers in full body armor waiting to attack the sprinters.
