The suffocating humidity of this weekend could not compare to the thick, electric tension that quietly loomed over the racers as the Hydro-Turf Pro Watercross National Tour came into its concluding round. Racers from all over the world converged on the bustling town of Charleston, West Virginia, prepared to fight tooth and nail for what each and every one of them desired – the glory of a 2014 National Title.
