Miss HomeStreet Hydroplane Takes Home the 2017 National Championship

September 18, 2017

SEATTLE, Wash. – Wrapping up an intense season of hydroplane racing, Miss HomeStreet and championship driver Jimmy Shane clinched the title of H1 Unlimited National Champion today after a strong performance at San Diego Bayfair. This is Shane's fifth national championship in his 10-year racing career.

 

"Bringing home the national championship is a proud moment for the entire HomeStreet team," said Miss HomeStreet driver Jimmy Shane. "We want to thank San Diego for cheering us on this weekend and the rest of our supporters for sticking with us for the entire season."

San Diego Bayfair brings thousands of hydroplane fans to Mission Bay each summer. Miss HomeStreet and the rest of the boats thrilled spectators with high speeds and top-notch competition on the longest and fastest race course in the sport.  

"Congratulations to Jimmy and the entire Miss HomeStreet team for once again earning the highest honor in hydroplane racing," said HomeStreet Bank CEO and President Mark K. Mason. "This has been an incredible season, and we're looking forward to starting off strong next year with a new Miss HomeStreet boat."
