Detroit Lakes, MN (WDAY TV) -- Rev up the engines, some extremely fast and powerful boats are showing what they can do on Big Detroit Lake.

The 6th annual Quake the Lake event is big business for DL. It's being hosted at the Holiday Inn for the 2nd year in a row.

Hotel Manager Jeff Jasperson says this event is a huge summer kick off for the hotel.

Half of the guests this weekend are boat racers along with their families. In other words not a time for employees to ask for a day off, the hotel is at full staff.

One waitress says this weekend is a great way to make up for the slower winter season.

Sasha Peterson says, "usually people do tip pretty well when they are having a good weekend, you know they are having fun, and it's fun outside and, yea they do, for better moods they do tip a little bit better."

The races will start again tomorrow at 1.
