Hydroplane racing is apparently returning to Owensboro. 

The Facebook page “American Hydroplane Events” posted an advisory about a news conference planned for Wednesday afternoon at the Owensboro Convention Center.

The advisory says the conference will announce “a new community event for 2020.”

Owensboro last hosted hydroplane racing on the Ohio River in the 1970’s.

Evansville’s HydroFest was last held in 2018, before the Convention and Visitors Bureau dropped its support for the event in 2019.

The new Owensboro event is expected to be held in August of this year.
