On behalf of our Board, Teams and officials, we are excited about yesterday's announcement that GPW will headline the Evansville HydroFest on Labor Day weekend. Our entire organization is looking forward to bringing the "Roar to the Shore" along the Ohio River. We have a great deal to do in the months ahead and paramount is ensuring that we engage with new and long term race fans to help make this a long term event. Our commitment to "Fans Come First" is a key in all of our efforts this year- introducing our sport, teams and supercharged hydroplanes at every stop we make is a priority. The North American Championships will bring the best competitors to this event from several categories of Inboard racing. We will do all we can to help encourage participation and to assist in supporting Evansville's vision for the future of the event. We look forward to working with APBA and other organizations in creating the premier racing event for Inboards in the USA. Our thanks to the organizers in Evansville as well as to the Teams of GPW who have committed to making 2017 a banner yet at for boat racing. We will have another event to announce in the weeks ahead and look forward to bringing the worlds fastest automotive powered boats to new venues as we move forward. See you at The Evansville Hydrofest, Oak Harbor Hydros for Heroes, Tri Cities Columbia Cup, the Madison Regatta and other stops along the way!
