The Owensboro HydroFair returns to Owensboro August 19-21! The races are bigger and better than ever this year, with more than 60 teams traveling to the US and Canada to compete.
The 60 hydroplane teams are separated into seven classes in which they will compete for the titles. The boats are fast, powerful and loud, reaching up to 170 MPH and spraying water high into the air as they rip through the river. The race course will be an oval-shaped track of 1.25 miles beginning and ending in front of the Owensboro Convention Center, and drivers will cycle the track four times.
