Notes about the Real Boat: The eighth Miss Budweiser was originally built by Ron Jones for George Walther, who never raced it. Sold to Bernie Little, it first appeared in 1976, winning one race with Mickey Remund driving. In 1977, this Miss Budweiser won three races on its way to the APBA National Championship with a remarkable season in which she completed all 28 heats she started. In 1978 Ron Snyder took over the driving duties, winning one race. The hull was replaced in 1979 by Little’s first Griffon-powered cabover.
The hull went on to race under many names including Miss Tri-Cities. Prior to the 1981 season it was converted to a cabover configuration and raced under several other names including Thousand Trails, Budweiser Light and American Speedy Printing.
