COCOA BEACH and PORT CANAVERAL, Florida -- Organizers with the 2015 "Thunder on Cocoa Beach" Super Boat race have announced that a third race has been added due to a high number of contestants entering the race this year.  As a result, the start times for the Space Coast Super Boat races on Sunday, May 17, 2015, have changed.

The first super boat race will start at 11 a.m., with a second race at 1:15 p.m., and a third race at 2:30 p.m. 

The race route starts at Shepard Park in Cocoa Beach and heads south for a first turn at Lori Wilson Park then back north for a second turn at The Cocoa Beach Pier, then back south for a finish at Shepard Park.  The race can be viewed from any stretch of the beach between Lori Wilson Park and the Cocoa Beach Pier.
