Drivers Prepare for Roar on the River

Hydrofest has finally arrived in Evansville, but before the weekend of races officially kicks off, there are plenty of preparations to be done for the drivers and their crews. 

Drivers travel from all across the country to take place in this weekend's races. Once they arrive, they have even more work ahead as they must put together and double-check every aspect of their boats. 

The long list of work takes days or even weeks of preparation for each boat, but the drivers on the river this weekend say it's worth it once they get out on the water. 

Fifty-seven boats are registered for the races so far. Racing begins Saturday, while practice rounds kick off Friday afternoon.
