Racers won nearly $13,000 in prize money.
With 22 boats reaching speeds upwards of 100 miles per hour, fortunately no one was hurt.
There was just one minor wreck reported.
"It was definitely a successful weekend. Everyone enjoyed themselves we heard nothing but great comments from the spectators. Our safety crews were great. Definitely a successful, successful weekend," says Andrea Zaph, a scorer.
Again, a bit too windy to race Sunday.
Organizers put the racers' safety first and cancelled the event's finale.
A big event this weekend in marietta.
It's the 14th annual riverfront roar.
Over 20 professional boat racers are in Marietta.
Every year it attracts pro-racers from across the country.
Organizers say it's also a great boost for Marietta businesses.
Hundred of people watched from the riverbanks.
"Boating is a big deal here. and as you can see, the people love the river," said Gary Williams, the Event Chair. "They love to come down and if they don't go on the river, and if they don't go on the river and just watch it. So this is just a natural event for our area."
Saturday's races were followed by fireworks and live music.
Today's winners will face off for the championship Sunday, beginning at noon.
