Mich. Drag Boat Racer Dies In Crash

A drag-boat racer from Michigan was killed when his boat crashed during a Southern Drag Boat Association race on Grand River in Mayes County.

John Haas was on his second qualifying pass when his boat crashed on the water about 2:00 p.m. Saturday. Southern Drag Boat Association inspectors released Haas’ vessel back to the group Saturday night after examining it.

They found nothing wrong with the boat, but they didn’t know what caused the crash.
