Schumacher Racing announced today that the team’s return to competition at the HAPO Columbia Cup in the Tri-Cities July 25 – 27 will also mark the return of Dave Villwock to the driver’s seat of an Unlimited Hydroplane.
Villwock joined Schumacher Racing during the 2013 season as a consultant and became the team manager. This followed a driving career that produced 67 wins, the most by any driver in the history of the sport, including 10 National Championships and 10 Gold Cup victories.
Team owner Billy Schumacher explained, “In the past year, a lot of people have asked me how it made sense to have the best driver in the history of the sport as a backup driver. Why not put him in the boat?’
