Head to Head

Two legends of unlimited hydroplane meet head to head.  Could Jimmy Shane make it three wins in a row in the 5 Graham Trucking?  And would the 63 point lead in 2013 season standings that Steve David carried into the Sunday heats driving the 1 Oh Boy! Oberto still be there at the end of the day, giving the retiring veteran his seventh driver’s championship?
