Dave Villwock has won just about everything out there for an Unlimited Hydroplane driver to capture. He comes into this weekend's series stop in Madison, Ind. as the defending champion and qualified second to Steve David in Friday's speed runs.

Defending Madison Regatta Champion Dave Villwock was happy with the performance of his newly named and numbered U-96 Spirit of Qatar, in spite of qualifying second to Steve David in the U-1 Oh Boy Oberto.

Villwock recorded a 153.152 to David's 154.575.  in 2009, Villwock was top qualifier and ran the table in heat racing, including the championship final.

"Over all we had a good day," said Villwock." We had some first day electrical issues that kept us from running more laps but, in the 11th hour, we pulled a rabbit out of the hat.  The boat ride is great and I think we'll race even better than we qualified.  It should be a good weekend."
