  • Oberto/Miss Madison wins Gold Cup

    Staff Report
    KENNEWICK, Wash. --- In unlimited hydroplane racing, the start of the race many times determines the champion. Little did 2015 HAPO APBA Gold Cup champion Jimmy Shane realize that when he radioed to his spotter Jeff Bernard a possible pre-race violation against competing driver Jean Theoret, that call would be the deciding factor in Shane winning his second consecutive Gold Cup title.
