Elected to International Motorsports Hall of Fame Hydro Hero
Seattle, WA (November 10, 2004) -- Chip Hanauer, the most successful driver in American Power Boat Association (APBA) Gold Cup history will be inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in Talladega, Alabama in 2005 it was announced today.
Hanauer, an honors graduate of Washington State University and lifelong resident of the Seattle area, won 11 APBA Gold Cups, seven Unlimited hydroplane national titles and 61 races in his Unlimited hydroplane career.
Hanauer broke the legendary Gar Wood's record of five consecutive Gold Cup victories winning seven consecutive years from 1982-1988.
He becomes only the second powerboat racer ever to be inducted into the IMSHOF.
The late Bill Muncey, inducted into the IMHOF in 2004, was an eight-time Gold Cup winner and won 62 races in his career.
"This is a tremendous and unexpected honor," said Hanauer.
A 120 member IMHOF panel of international motorsports media selects participants from all forms of motorsports. There are no categories. All nominees appear on a single ballot with only the top five elected for induction.
Joining Hanauer in the class of 2005 will be three-time NASCAR champion Darrell Waltrip, drag racing stars Joe Amato and Bob Glidden and former Formula One and CART champion Nigel Mansell.
The 2005 IMHOF Induction ceremonies will take place on April 28, in Talladega, Alabama and broadcast nationally by Speed TV.
