Shane Outduels David for Seafair Win

With a little help from his friends, Jimmy Shane combined the inside advantage, great boat speed and an outstanding job of driving to hold off defending Seafair champion Steve David in the 1 Oh Boy! Oberto and put the 5 Graham Trucking in the winner’s circle Sunday at the 2013 Albert Lee Appliance Cup on Seattle’s Lake Washington.
The help from friends came during the scoring up for the Championship Final Heat when Graham had secured lane one and was joined in lane two by Kip Brown in the 95 Spirit of Qatar in lane two and  J. Michael Kelly in the 37 Miss Beacon Plumbing who took lane three, forcing David out to lane four.jimmyJimmy Shane celebrates his win in Seattle last Sunday. Rod Smith photo.
David was asked about all the “kids” taking the good lanes and forcing him out to four and replied, “Yes I think we might have had a shot at him from lane two but four was just too far out.  I made a run to catch him once I got over into two but he’s just too fast to catch if he’s that far ahead.”
For Shane, the fourth win in his young career was doubly sweet, coming in the hometown of his sponsor Rob Graham of Graham Trucking.
“It’s incredible!” exclaimed an excited Shane. “Ted Porter has owned boats for a long time and Rob Graham has been sponsoring his boats for years but neither one of them had won in Seattle.  To win here in one of the biggest events on our tour is so special I can’t put it into words.”
Asked about his plans for celebrating, Shane added, “I’m going to celebrate with Colton!”  Colton is the baby son of Shane and fiancé Bianca Bononcini who are planning an October wedding in Chelan.
Brown finished third in the Spirit of Qatar and Kelly was fourth in Miss Beacon Plumbing. Jon Zimmerman was the trailer boat in the Final by virtue of a win in the provisional heat but drove from seventh to fifth in the 9 Fox Plumbing & Heating presents Team RedDOT powered by Les Schwab.
Earlier in the day, preliminary heats produced some great racing, especially in Heat 3A which saw Shane secure the inside but run a close second to Brown in lane 2 for all three laps.
David won all three of his preliminaries with Shane, Brown and Mike Webster in the 22 Boitano Homes presents Performance Tools also scoring wins in the qualifiers.
Next stop on the H1 Unlimited Hydroplane tour will be Labor Day weekend in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

When Steve David drove top qualifier 1 Oh Boy! Oberto to victory in Heat 1A of the Albert Lee Appliance Cup on Seattle’s Lake Washington Saturday – no one was surprised.

But Mike Webster’s win in Heat 1B driving the 22 Boitano Homes presents Performance Tools, Webster and his new sponsors were surprised and very pleased.1 37seaSteve David and J. Michael Kelly battle Saturday at the Albert Lee Cup in Seattle. Todd Tamayao photo.

Jon Zimmerman in the 9 Fox Plumbing presents Team RedDOT powered by Les Schwab secured lane one before the start and staged a deck-to-deck battle with Kip Brown in the 95 Spirit of Qatar for the lead.  But officials ruled both had jumped the start clock, sending them back to fourth and fifth.

Pre-race favorite Jimmy Shane in the 5 Graham Trucking was washed down before the start and did not make the start of the heat.

The penalties on Zimmerman and Brown moved third place Webster up to first.  Rookie Jamie Nilsen, in his first racer as a qualified driver, finished second.

Heat 1A began with J Michael Kelly in the 37 Miss Beacon Plumbing and Brian Perkins in the 21 Albert Lee Appliance parking in the inside lanes and moving slowly around to the one minute “score up” buoy. David drove around them in lane three and achieved the overlap on Perkins, taking over lane two at the start. Kelly challenged from the inside for two laps before dropping back to second with Perkins third and Mark Evans in the 57 Fedco fourth and Tom Thompson in the 11 Peters and May fifth.

Racing will resume Sunday with Heat 2A at 11:10 am.  Saturday Results –
