powerboating

The American Power Boat Association (APBA) offered another season of racing for all types of boats in 1993. The big Unlimited hydroplanes were again dominated by Chip Hanauer (see BIOGRAPHIES), who chalked up another stellar season driving Miss Budweiser to a national title and an unprecedented nine APBA Gold Cup victories. Finishing second in the national standings was Kellogg's Frosted Flakes, piloted by Mike Hanson, and Mark Tate in Winston Eagle followed.
