Bernard Beats Out Steve David at Madison Regatta

Posted: Updated:
MADISON, Wis. -- Jeff Bernard, of Kent, Wash., won the Indiana Governor's Cup hydroplane race on the Ohio River today.

It's Bernard's first career victory, as he and teammate Mike Allen teamed up to outmaneuver  Steve David for the win.

The victory makes the 23-year-old Bernard one of the youngest winners in the history of hydroplane racing. He piloted the Formulaboats.com boat.

David, driving Oh Boy! Oberto, finished second, and Allen finished third.

The hydros will be in the Tri-Cities for the Columbia Cup on July 25-27, and at Seattle on Lake Washington on Aug. 1-3.
