Anybody know the story on the attempt to build a hydroplane race course at the August International Raceway? It's billed as the "World's largest public motorsports memorial project."

Evansville, the site of the first stop on the 2008 Unlimited Hydroplane racing tour, seems to have settled down after feeling the effects of a nearby earthquake in the southern Illinois. The quake actually happened while WFIE-TV was on the air. Watch the VIDEO below to see how it played out on TV.

ABRA, KNDO/KNDU-TV and announce partnership to increase video on and for the 2008 season. You'll see video of every heat race from every race site with same-day turnaround.
