HXR Watercraft Racing Series Cancelled for 2015
Well, this sucks. Just when you think it’s safe to start getting excited for the 2015 racing season, we get news like this: Unfortunately, all HXR Watercraft Racing Series for 2015 have been cancelled. That includes the newly announced HXR Arena Racing, HXR HydroCross Racing and HXR HydroDrag Racing series. Undoubtedly, it comes with a heavy heart for organizer and fellow racer Brent Venderley, who poured a considerable deal of blood, sweat and tears into developing the HXR series’ 2015 season into what could’ve been something massive, but alas, fate would say otherwise.
In light of significant increases in new watercraft unit sales in 2014, the interest and funding necessary to support an aggressive racing program such as what Venderley was proposing appears to have all but vanished. This news of course, comes as turmoil between sanctioning bodies and private event promoters has left many racers and spectators to query the station of organized PWC racing in the United States as a whole. With regional promoters slowly backing out of the IJSBA or racing altogether, would-be participants are left wondering whether the sport has much of a chance at all.
