It was difficult day for hydroplane racing fans in the Tri-State, after the board of directors of the Evansville Convention & Visitors Bureau voted not to continue with hydroplane racing during this year’s HydroFest.

The decision came down to not enough sponsorship money and no contract with the racing commission.

Racers and fans are now missing a tradition with a deep history in Evansville.

The Roar on the River is no more for 2019.
