(Lake Hamilton, Fla.) - Hydro-Prop, Inc., announced today that Anheuser-Busch has renewed its sponsorships of both Unlimited Hydroplanes and the Formula One P.R.O.P. Tour for the 2002 season. Budweiser, the world's best-selling beer brewed by Anheuser-Busch, Inc., will serve as the title sponsor of the Budweiser Unlimited Hydroplane Series for the third consecutive year. Additionally, Bud Light will again be the presenting sponsor for the Formula One P.R.O.P. Tour while the O'Doul's brand will support the Hydros Year-End Driver High Points Championship Fund.

"Having Anheuser-Busch on board for another year as a major sponsor is great news," said Bart Garbrecht, CEO of Hydro-Prop. "They have supported Unlimited Hydroplanes for a number of years, and we look forward to much success as we continue to build our relationship with Anheuser-Busch."

The Laughlin Tourism Committee, a division of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, has signed on for the fourth consecutive year as the title sponsor of the Formula One P.R.O.P. Tour. Laughlin also hosted its own event on June 1-2, the Laughlin River Days, the first race of the Laughlin Formula One P.R.O.P. Tour Presented By Bud Light.

"We are fortunate to have Laughlin continue their role as the title sponsor of Formula One," Garbrecht continued. "Sponsoring the entire series and the first race of the season shows the dedication they have for this sport. We are pleased about our deepening relationship and are happy to have found a partner like Laughlin."

The Budweiser Unlimited Hydroplane Series has also secured the following sponsorships for the 2002 season: Northwest Jet Boats (Official Rescue Boat), Plunkett & Cooney, P.C. (Official Legal Service Provider), Data-Linc Group (Official Wireless Modem), Race Against Drugs and AFMIM (Association for Minorities in Motorsports).

The Formula One P.R.O.P. Tour will also have support from Telmex and Amsoil (Official Two-Cycle Oil) as Associate Sponsors for the 2002 season. In addition, VP Fuels (Official Fuel) will sponsor The Year-End High Point Fund for the series, which last year produced the closest championship points battle in the history of the Formula One P.R.O.P. Tour.

Hydro-Prop has also secured sponsorships with a number of corporations for both the Hydros and Formula One P.R.O.P. Tour including, ESPN2, Atlanta TeleProductions (Production Company), Racing Communications (Official Radio), Powerboat Racing Rescue (Official Rescue Team), Yamaha Outboards (Official Rescue Engine and Rescue Watercraft), Motor Racing Outreach (Official Motorsports Ministry Service), Formula Fashion (Uniform Supplier), Pure Image (National Program) and Custom Solutions (Merchandise Supplier).
