U-6 Oh Boy! Oberto / Miss Madison is the 2008 National High Points Champion Unlimited Hydroplane
SAN DIEGO, Cali - The U-6 Oh Boy! Oberto/Miss Madison, driven by Steve David (Lighthouse, Fla.) placed second in Sunday's heat 2B on Mission Bay, but it gave the team enough points to lock up the U-1 designation for 2009, bringing the team their first ABRA National Championship since the team began 47 years ago.
"Oh Boy! This is bigger than winning a single race. More than one boat can win a race during the year, but at the end of the season, there will only be one U-1. The city [of Madison] is planning a big celebration on the first weekend of October."

"We can't wait to bring the American Boat Racing Association (ABRA) National Championship home to the town of Madison, Ind., I hope Mayor Tim Armstrong and the city have the new sign ready to change Milton Avenue to U-1 National Champion," Bob Hughes the town's representative said. The team's boat shop in Madison, Ind is located on Milton Ave.
