Columbia Drag Boat Association

The Columbia Drag Boat Association (CDBA) is a non-profit organization that promotes the sport of drag boat racing in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. The organization was founded in the late 1960’s by a group of drag boat enthusiasts who wanted to create a safe and organized environment for their sport.

The CDBA hosts several drag boat racing events throughout the year on Dexter Reservoir in Lowell, Oregon and one race hosted at Haystack Reservoir in Culver, Oregon. The Summer Clash is held each July and co-sanctioned with other drag boat racing associations, which brings racers and spectators from all over the United States and Canada. Prior to the July race there is a test and tune session which allows racers to test and fine-tune their boats before the main even.

Decades of Drag Boat Racing!

 CDBA is made up of a dedicated group of volunteers who work hard all year to promote the sport of drag boat racing in the Pacific Northwest region. The organization relies on the support of sponsors, volunteers, and the community to continue hosting high-quality drag boat racing events.
