1967 Miss Budweiser

The Hydroplane & Raceboat Museum's 1967 Miss Budwieser was built by Les Staudacher in 1962 for Shirley Mendelson McDonald. She ran in 1962 and 1963 as the Notre Dame.

Doha, Day 5 - Winding Down

Posted on November 22, 2010 at 10:59am 2 Comments

On our last full day in Doha, as planned, we went down to the pits and did the final prep on the boat for shipment. Hatches were given a final dry-out where needed, covers put in place, hatch screw plates and internal hardware was sprayed down with rust inhibitor, and we placed the big plastic cover on the trip to keep it clean on journey home. Last word is that the boats won’t head out…

We had a caravan of about 8 vehicles, mostly Toyota Landcruisers, Nissan…

The two big winners as you all probably know by now were Dave Villwock, who not only won the Oryx Cup but picked up his 62nd career win, tying him with Bill Muncey for the sport’s winningest driver…..and Steven David who brought home his third consecutive Team High Point Championship for The Oberto/Madison gang. These are both HUGE accomplishments by any measure, and my hat is off to both drivers and teams for having such great… Continue

Hi friends,

Your obedient correspondent is a little woofed tonight, so I don’t have a ton of piffle for you. The U-17 struggling with some overheating and fuel issues, so it was another late night in the pits while we pulled the motor, pulled the PT wheel out, changed a fuel control and got…
