SEATTLE, Wash. – August 28, 2016 – HomeStreet today announced that Miss HomeStreet and championship driver Jimmy Shane placed 2nd the UAW-GM APBA Gold Cup at the 2016 Hydrofest in Detroit, Mich. The winner of this year’s gold cup was J. Michael Kelly driving U-5.
This news follows a second-lace finish at the Albert Lee Appliance Seafair Cup in Seattle and a controversial finish at the 2016 HAPO Columbia Cup in Tri-Cities, Wash. During the first major race of the season, Miss HomeStreet had a fantastic win at the 2016 Indiana Governor’s Cup Race at the Madison Regatta in July.
“It’s always exciting to compete here for the oldest active trophy in motor sports,” said Miss HomeStreet driver Jimmy Shane. “I hope to continue bringing excitement to fans at Bayfair in San Diego, coming up on September 16-18.”
Gold Cup, celebrating the historic event’s centennial celebration this year, is considered by many to be the premiere race in U.S. H1 Unlimited Hydroplane racing. During the race Miss HomeStreet and the rest of the boats thrilled spectators with high speeds and top-notch competition on the 2.5-mile Detroit River course.
“I’d like to thank Jimmy and the entire racing team for another great race,” said HomeStreet Bank CEO and President Mark K. Mason. “We look forward to continuing to take part in this rich tradition for years to come.”
