The second stop of the season will take place at Prairie Springs Park in Pleasant Prairie on June 19-21. Prairie Springs Park has played home to the WWA Wakeboard National Championships for the past several years, but never has served as a Pro Tour stop. This three-day event will feature the second and final round of Tour qualifiers for all three divisions. Final placement in Pleasant Prairie will determine which riders qualify to finish out the rest of the '09 Tour and continue earning points in the Indmar Performance Standings.
The King of Wake is an eight-event series points race. The top athletes who qualify into each contest will compete to earn points towards the series standings. Athletes are ranked according to total points earned throughout the eight-event season. Following the final contest of the season, the highest total points-earner in the series will be crowned the King of Wake.
To keep the points race tight, the King of Wake series features the �Chase for the Crown� format. The Chase limits the eligibility for crown to the top-ten highest points-earners, midway through the season. Following the fifth stop of the series, only the current top-ten ranked athletes in the standings will receive a point bonus, adjusting their totals to keep the points race tight, and making only the top-ten eligible for the King of Wake crown.
All athletes will still compete at each of the remaining contests in the series, but only the ten athletes involved in the Chase will have the remaining three stops to top each other in the standings for the King of Wake crown.
The tour will continue on to the 3rd stop in Knoxville, TN June 27th-28th.
