SUNDAY LOWDOWN: Weird Things on the Water

Your 2022 Kinetic Grand Championship racers made it through Day One mostly unscathed, but the danger levels raise on Day Two. For it is Sunday morning when the machines make their way into Humboldt Bay for a wet slog along Eureka's waterfront. Will their flotation devices stay secured? Make your way down anytime from mid- to late-morning to find out.

If they manage to emerge from the drink, the kompetitors will make their way south on Highway 101, up Table Bluff and down into Loleta before turning on Cannibal Island Road on their way to their final destination, Crab Park. Once there, racers will immediately fall asleep and dream of Day Three glory.
