Notes about the Model: Craig Bradshaw built his hull and applied one of his awesome paint jobs in 2012/2013. He raced the boat in 2013 and then put it on the shelf. Dead Guy Racing was fortunate to acquire the boat in 2015, with the agreement to provide a competitive ride to a new driver. Sub Sonic Speed Shop modified the sponsons and replaced all the hardware and wings with their signature parts.

 

Notes about the Real Boat:  Built in 2007 by the Miss Madison team and driven by Steve David, this boat won the H1 Season High Points Championship in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2012. Rocketman Jimmy Shane took over as driver in 2014 and has been the Champion with this hull ever since. Many thanks to Art "Oh Boy!" Oberto for 40 years supporting the great sport of unlimited hydroplane racing.

 

Notes about 2016:  Rookie driver Gabriel Kjos will pilot this boat for the 2016 season, intending to challenge for the Championship.
