Many course records including Mission Bay, Long Beach Marine Stadium, Decatur and Dayton.
We campaigned the entire USA in 1977 without losing a single heat.
The boat has always campigned as Yaller Dawg but we have had a few number changes over the years: Joe G. Schulte ran as 44-S the first few years, then S-44.
We did not register in 1974 and lost the number. For 1975, we campaigned under S-441.
Then finally as S-55 in 1976 and 1977. The Schulte family has a long tradition of boat racing.
The boat originally ran 144ci 6-cylinder Ford Falcon per 145 stock class rules.
We installed a 1971 Pinto 2000cc when the class rules changed.
