Mike Webster's U-22 Making Progress

Work continues on the U-22 of Mike Webster. Mike tells me in an email, "I am really working hard to try and make this all happen." The goal is the 2009 ABRA season for the Webster Racing Team from Reading, PA.

Matrix System Automotive Finishes has joined the Webster Racing Team for the 2009 season as a sponsor. The team is currently painting the bottom of the U-22 hull. Stage one is complete, with the completion scheduled for this weekend (Sept. 20-21). Mike writes, "The running bottoms are being coated currently and will be ready to be installed shortly." When all the painting is complete, the hull will be turned right side up and work will continue on top of the unlimited hydroplane.
