FLASHBACK: Mike Hanson, 1994

Mike Hanson stepped into to the Miss Budweiser cockpit in '94 and helped injured driver Chip Hanauer and Bernie Little's team gain a National Championship.

Despite some damage to the race boat [right side of photo], Bernie Little was able to laugh about it. Fourteen years later, Hanson again worked his way to a National Championship this time as the Oh Boy! Oberto/Miss Madison Racing crew chief.
