WOW, this is huge huge news for a sport that is really on the rebound.....
This is a perfect opportunity for the sport to pick up popularity and a few major sponsors with Fox. I've always said, Hydroplane racing could be as popular as NASCAR given the right exposure and interest. Sports fans are always looking for the latest and greatest new thing, and hopefully with the Budwieser gone, this sport can pick things up again.
Good luck to the Hydroplanes in 2006 and beyond!
