Madison 2022 Preview
|Handsome Transom Motorsports||
The East Coast swing continues as the H1 fleet heads to Madison, Indiana and the tight and rough Wild Bill Cantrell Race Course. The boats will be running under the bridge in a match race “Shootout” format on Saturday and a more traditional heat race format with a final on Sunday. The match race format will provide for one-on-one racing and offer plenty of points to be earned for H1 teams and fantasy players alike. The Indiana Governor’s Cup this coming Independence Day Weekend will feature the following boat roster:
U-1 Miss HomeStreet Bank (Shane)
HydroDan’s Three 2 Think About:
Silver Takes Gold: The silver U-9 Lynx Healthcare took gold in Guntersville as the U-1 HomeStreet Bank and the U-40 Beacon Plumbing knocked themselves out during the race before the race. Although Peabody and the 9 was not the fastest combination in Alabama, they certainly showed reliability and speed that will come in handy on the tight and long 2.5 mile Cantrell Race Course.
What’s Wrong With Miss Tri Cities?: The U-8 did not look right in Guntersville, displaying noticeable handling issues and a lack of top-end speed. The team thrashed to repair a sponson tip on Saturday and also blew a motor in the final.
Home Cooking: After a disappointing Gold Cup loss, Jimmy Shane will defend his Governor’s Cup crown in front of all 13,000 owners of the The U-1 Miss HomeStreet Bank / Miss Madison. If running on his home water is not motivation enough, perhaps the huge letdown at the first race of the season will be.

The races all three days where really good. I still do know why the U-1 and the U-40 got disqualified. The audio from the awards ceremony was very low. It would really be nice if we could be told the top speed of the boats besides the lap speed. Why do the announcers only say the race course has 2 turns. An oval race track has 4 turns water,dirt or asphalt.

40 was DQ’d for leaving the course during pre-race, as Villwock did big S curves to scrub speed because he was too early for the start, he went outside the outer course (insurance) buoys. The 1 got in trouble for going dead and then restarting, Although it was likely not intentional in violated the 80 mph minimum rule for pre-race dicing for lanes. Those were both good calls per the rules. We’d like to see the rule revised so that of a boat goes dead and restarts it can still make a legal start from an outside lane. You are correct, the announcers always announce lap averages but not usually the top end speeds. We agree, that would be a fun number to here over the PA, or on the broadcast. Thanks for playing!
