Marty Wolfe wins Grand Prix National Championship at Chelan

Posted: Updated:

CHELAN, Wash. - Wow!!  What a day.  Especially for Marty Wolfe.  All the way from Illinois, and he made the trip worth while. 

He won the "whole ball of wax" -- the Grand Prix National High Points for the whole season, and the Grand Prix National Championship. 

The first heat was all Greg Hopp in the Graham Trucking-Happy Go Lucky-Pumptech.  Unfortunately Greg jumped the gun.  Not by much, but he did. 

Jeff Bernard followed his San Diego Unlimited win last week with a strong second place in the heat driving Bob Schellhase's Mill Bay Casino. Greg finished third. 

In the final, Dustin Echols appeared to be the winner, but he was penalized for bearing out. 

The deck to deck show lap after lap between Dustin and Marty Wolfe had the crowd on pins and needles.  After the excitement was over the referees made their ruling. 

Marty Wolfe --  Great guy, fast boat, and Grand Prix Champion
