We are pleased to announce the return of Jimmy Shane to the cockpit of the HomeStreet Bank sponsored U-1 unlimited hydroplane and the promotion of Dan Hoover to Crew Chief for the 2016 season. Jimmy’s return is based on the planning and preparation under Team Manager Charlie Grooms, new Crew Chief Dan Hoover and the experienced Miss Madison team.

“Miss Madison Inc. and our racing partner, HomeStreet Bank are extremely pleased that Jimmy Shane will continue to pilot the world’s only community owned hydroplane. Events of the last several weeks have reshaped our focus and with the promotion of Dan Hoover as crew chief we couldn’t be more excited to start a campaign to repeat our National Champion efforts. Jimmy and Dan have worked together for many years, are close friends and have been a part of our team’s success the last 2 years which makes Dan’s promotion to crew chief very seamless,” said Charlie Grooms, Team Manager of Miss Madison Inc.

Jimmy added, “The team has made great strides over the last few weeks in its racing plan for the 2016 season. The team is once again setting itself up to be a top contender and looking forward to defending both our H1 Unlimited National High Points Championships and APBA Gold Cup victories. I am also looking forward to the new partnership with HomeStreet Bank and working to promote their company. The past month has raised some awareness in keeping the team focused on continued success and I would like to extend a big thank you to the fans and supporters of the team who helped to make my decision to return as the driver for such a great team an easy one.”

Primary goals for the U-1 this season will be to represent new sponsor HomeStreet Bank well and to extend the team’s streak of H1 Unlimited National High Points Championships and APBA Gold Cup wins to three in a row.
