Elam, Villwock To Race In Tri-Cities....ABRA Press Release

The Miss Ellstrom Elam Plus will be ready to get back into action next weekend in the ABRA Unlimited Hydroplane Lamb Weston Columbia Cup. Dave Villwock, the winningest active driver in all of hydroplane racing, will once again pilot the 2007 National High Point championship boat.

Between 1992 and 2007, Dave Villwock won a total 55 first-place trophies. Only the late Bill Muncey (with 62) and the retired Chip Hanauer (with 61) have more in the Unlimited Class. No one else is even close.

Villwock won the very first Unlimited race he ever drove (San Diego 1992). He has six Gold Cups and nine National High Point Driver titles and, of course, is driving the defending national high point championship boat.

The Ellstrom Racing Team did not make the Eastern Swing this year since they will be going to Dubai late this year for some exhibition runs.

With the Ellstrom team, a total of 13 boats will race in the first ABRA event on the western swing.
