An unfortunate casualty from Unlimited Lights Spring Training is the loss of the UL-929 for the Phoenix event. Vince "X-Man" Xaudaro and Jim & Karon Wilmot who own the hull are very encouraged by what they've seen so far, however drive line damage that occured at Spring Training couldn't be repaired in time for Phoenix. The 929 team will open the season next month at Richland WA for Desert Thunder II at Howard Amon Park, May 17th & 18th. The 929 hull is the former Thunder Valley UL-21 that launched supercharged engines in the Unlimited Lights series with driver Nick Badolato back in 2001.

Interesting food for thought on the ABRA website. What driver has the highest winning percentage of all-time (number of wins/divided by races)? It's Dave Villwock with 55 wins in 111 races (a % of .495).

Nobody else even comes close. That's almost a win every other time he hits the water.
