(June 2010) Madison Regatta race fans are getting
excited about the upcoming Unlimited hydroplane season, which opens
July 4-5 at Madison.
This year, the community-owned Oh Boy!Oberto-Miss Madison will again
wear the U-1 on its helm. For the first time in its 48-year history,
the Oh Boy! Oberto-Miss Madison finished first in National High Points
for Unlimited hydroplanes for the 2008 season. That entitled the team
to carry the coveted U-1 designation throughout the 2009 racing season.
The team again finished first in 2009 and will sport the U-1 in 2010.
The season opens in Madison, moves to Detroit and then out to the West
Coast for races at Tri-Cities, Wash., and Seattle before concluding
in Doha, Qatar.
This years Madison Regatta has a title sponsor in Lucas Oil, which
signed on in April to back the festival and race weekend.
It all kicks off Saturday, June 26, and continues for a week leading
up to Indiana Governors Cup race on Sunday, July 4. For more information,
