Steve David to Retire

Steve David has announced his retirement from the sport of unlimited hydroplane racing following this weekend's Bayfair event in San Diego. 

David, who has been the driver of the Oh Boy! Oberto hydroplane for the last twelve years, has 18 overall wins entering the weekend, including four national titles and six tour driver championships as well as twelve second place finishes in the Gold Cup.

David and the Oberto team enter the weekend 43 points ahead of Jimmy Shane and the Graham Trucking team in the closest race for a national championship that anyone can remember on the hydros tour.

San Diego is the final event of the season.
