(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 year’s 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 Governor’s Cup race on Sunday, July 4. For more information, visit: www.MadisonRegatta.com.
