Some Hydros May Not Race At Water Follies

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. -- Many people were out at Howard Ammon Park watching the hydros on Sunday.

The Unlimited Light and the Lighter than Lights hit the water. The problem is: Water Follies officials say these particular boats may not be back for the July event.

For the last few years, these smaller hydros had been sponsored but this year they haven't found a company to help them out. Water Follies officials used a sponsorship to bring vintage boats to the event this year and they now do not have the money for the Unlimited Light and Lighter than Light Hydros.

Unlimited Light President Joe Frauenheim says this type of situation is not uncommon though. He says that often sponsorship deals aren't made until the last minute.
