July 30, 1998|By Peter Baker

Midsummer power boat racing continues on the Chesapeake on Saturday and Sunday with Thunder on the Narrows, an APBA-sanctioned hydroplane event that each year draws a strong field.

Among the Maryland drivers at the top of their class and expected to compete are Ken McMullen of Arnold in the 1.5-liter class and Alicia Cheezum of Centerville in 5-liter.

Racing classes include 1.5-liter, 2.5-liter stock, 2.5-liter modified and 5-liter, as well as Jersey Speed Skiff, Super Stock and Pro Stock.

The competition is sponsored by the Kent Narrows Racing Association.

Racing begins at noon each day. Free parking and shuttles from lots under the new U.S. 50-301 bridge to the Kent Narrows Yacht Club Grounds will be available.

Admission is $5, with children under 12 admitted free.
