Southland Sweepstakes Invitational 1976
Tom D'Eath driving Gone Heavy was out in front & rolling. Larry Lauterbach driving the "original" Edelwiess (not the birch boat) got wet down in the first turn, but came roaring back to take the money in 5 laps. Billy Gwynn was working hard that day.

Miss Goodwin 3-N
Lake Goodwin, Washington September 1960
Owned & driven by Doug Whitley. A great read about the story on how Doug and his boat ended up making the trip to Cape Coral, Florida for the 1960 Nationals and how Billy Schumacher got to drive it and won the National Championship & set a World Speed Competition Record of 73.710 mph. This and other neat stories on
Thanks to Doug for all your hard work as the APBA V&H chairman.
