The 2012 edition of the Showdown on the Sabine had plenty of excitement to offer fans, especially on Sunday.
The Fifth Annual Showdown on the Sabine featured numerous bumps, near-collisions, broken motors, and high speed racing action much to the delight of the thousands of fans who attended the weekend event.
The new addition of a carnival offered several new attractions for the already-popular family event, but the real event was the dozens of speeding boats and roaring engines circling the course on the Sabine River.
