View Full Version : Boat with inappropriate name, Evansville OPC race 1975

I remember a big 1975 OPC race in Evansville, IN, a boat showed up with the name Beat in A**,
painted on the deck (the third word, of course, being an expletive).

Jack Lewis made the crew remove that last word of the name before they could compete.
I remember them sanding frantically before the drivers meeting.
Does anyone know who the driver was?

I seem to remember an 1100R from the mid west that had the words " hoppy sits and sh!#s here" I think there was a ACspark plug logo on the boat as well.
funny that at the nationals the next year Winona I think the latter half was removed......

I do recall two boats: Huff Hearted and Ice Melted.....One had a horse painted on the side and the other had ice cubes pained on the other.

The other boa that came to mind was "Liquor Box". It had a picture of a wooden box on the boat....

Dick Buller from Oshawa Ontario Canada had a hot SS class inboard he named "Bullship".
