Villwock Crash

The Miss Beacon Plumbing H1 boat flipped at the start of Heat 2 during Saturday's HAPO Columbia Cup in the Tri-Cities, Washington. Driver Dave Villwock, 68, was not injured.

In a day where two hydroplanes were knocked out of the race with damage, J. Michael Kelly aboard Lynx Healthcare presents Miss Tri-Cities and Jimmy Shane in Miss HomeStreet came away as heat winners in the first day of competition Saturday in the HAPO Columbia Cup.

The fastest race boats in the world continue racing Sunday on the Columbia River in the Tri-Cities, the third stop of the 2022 H1 Unlimited Racing Series. The first stop was in Guntersville in late June.
