COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho -- After a 45 year hiatus, a successful Diamond Cup came to a close Sunday.
The hydroplane races provided an economic boost for the Coeur d’Alene area.
Oh Boy! Oberto racer Steve David said it was exciting to be part of the Lake City’s history.
"A lot of drivers weren't born then,” David said, “so it's kind of interesting there's old guys and young guys.”
“There's a great legacy here, tremendous fan base - you would think there were a race that had been going on forever,” David added. “It's great for the sport and we look forward to bring it back next year."
The first year back brought more than 50 thousand people to the shores of Coeur d’Alene for the three-day event.
