Maple City Grand Prix in LaPorte this weekend

LAPORTE, Ind. -- This weekend is the Maple City Grand Prix in LaPorte, Indiana. Racers will be driving their Formula One power boats around Stone Lake.

The 16-foot boats can reach maximum speeds of 160 miles per hour.

One of the racers is Tami Wolf, the only female participating.

We asked her what it’s like to be a role model to young women looking to get into racing.

"People are watching you everywhere you go, everything you say. You have to put yourself on a different level and just really be cautious how you put yourself out there,” said Wolf.
