Debris in the Ohio River forced the U-6 Oh Boy! Oberto/Miss Madison team to cancel its highly-anticipated test session that was scheduled for Tuesday morning.

According to Oh Boy! Oberto crew chief Mike Hanson, the risk of damage to the half-million dollar hydroplane was just too great.

"We're disappointed, but we don't want to break it," Hanson said.

Hanson said that the team has no immediate plans to reschedule the test session. The season opener in Evansville begins on Friday, June 27, less than two weeks away.
