Villwock to Return to Competition at Columbia Cup
The hydroplane tour's winningest driver of all time is coming out of retirement to return to competition at the Columbia Cup.
Dave Villwock will drive the U-37 Beacon Plumbing, owned by Bill Schumacher. Villwock called it a career after the 2012 season, having won 67 races and ten Gold Cups. He also won eight Columbia Cups.
The U-37 plans to run in the Tri-Cities and Seattle. Villwock became the team manager for the U-37 last year, but will now take over the cockpit.
