Driver Profile: Dave Villwock
Dave Villwock joined Schumacher Racing during the 2013 season as a consultant and became the team manager. This followed a driving career that produced 67 wins, the most by any driver in the history of the sport, including 10 National Championships and 10 Gold Cup victories.
In the summer of 2014, Villwock returned to the driver's seat as pilot of the 37 Miss Beacon Plumbing.
A boat racer since age 16, Dave accepted his first Unlimited Class assignment in 1989 as crew chief for Bill Bennett's MISS CIRCUS CIRCUS.
In 1990, Chip and Dave emerged as National High Point Champions with six wins in eleven races.
Following years of success in the flat-bottom inboard category, Villwock was High Point Champion in the 6-Litre Hydroplane Class in 1988 with Jerry Yoder's SUNSET CHEVROLET SPECIAL and set a 6-Litre heat record on a 1.25-mile course at 104.320 miles per hour.
At San Diego in 1992, Villwock made his Unlimited driving debut aboard an experimental tandem-wing boat, COORS DRY, owned by Ron Jones, Jr.
Dave scored an upset victory and became the first driver since Howie Benns in 1974 to win his first-ever Unlimited race.
Over the years, Villwock has driven some of the sport's greatest boats. At the very first Unlimited race in which he ever competed, Dave steered the underrated COORS DRY to victory on San Diego's Mission Bay in 1992.
Driving Fred Leland's PICO AMERICAN DREAM from 1994 to 1996, he claimed first-place in eight races, including one Gold Cup and the National Championship.
As pilot of Bernie Little's legendary MISS BUDWEISER from 1997 to 2004, he won 37 races, four Gold Cups and six National Championships.
And with SPIRIT OF QATAR (formerly ELLSTROM E-LAM PLUS) from2005 to 2012, he won 23 races, five Gold Cups, and two National Championships.
In 2011, Dave was National High Point Driver and triumphed in the APBA Gold Cup at Detroit, the Lamb-Weston Columbia Cup at the Tri-Cities (Washington), and the Bill Muncey Cup at San Diego.
In 2012, Villwock added wins in the season opener at Madison, Indiana and the APBA Gold Cup in Detroit, the tenth time his name was added to the historic trophy.

Sacramento, Ca - May 21, 2013 - When asked about his plans for the 2013 racing season, Dave Villwock said, " I don't plan to drive again but I will always be around boat racing. If someone is trying to figure out why they don't go fast, I might be able to help."
Villwock added, "I want to thank the Ellstrom family for the tremendous opportunity they gave me to be part of a great team with great equipment.
We are not aware of his future plans, but we wish Dave nothing but the best in his future endeavors."
Villwock was the H1 Unlimited National High Point Driving Champion in 2011, scoring wins in the Ellstrom family's Spirit of Qatar at the APBA Gold Cup at Detroit, the Lamb-Weston Columbia Cup at the Tri-Cities and the Bill Muncey Cup at San Diego Bayfair.
He ended that season with 65 career victories, surpassing the late Bill Muncey, who accumulated 62 victories between 1956 and 1981, and the retired Chip Hanauer, who won 61 races between 1979 and 1999.
In 2012, Villwock took the checkered flag in the season opener at Madison, Indiana and the APBA Gold Cup in Detroit, the tenth time his name has been added to the historic trophy, raising his career total to 67 wins.
Prior to his involvement as a crew chief and driver in the unlimited ranks, Villwock was one of the top drivers and engine builders in inboard hydro and flat-bottom racing.
In 1989, he became crew chief of Miss Circus Circus - driven by Hanauer. He quickly learned the fine points of tuning hydroplane hulls and propellers and managed the team to the 1990 National Championship.
While acting as Hanauer's crew chief, Villwock qualified for his unlimited driver's license and at San Diego in 1992, made his debut as an Unlimited driver with an experimental two-wing boat, owned by Ron Jones, Jr. Villwock scored an upset victory and, in so doing, became the first driver since Howie Benns in 1974 to win his first-ever Unlimited race.
After winning the Gold Cup and the national championship in Fred Leland's Pico American Dream in 1996, Villwock was hired by Bernie Little to pilot the legendary Miss Budweiser.
Steve David, Villwock's arch rival for more than a decade, commented, "Dave made every team he ever joined competitive and in some cases dominant.
There is no doubt that history will remember Dave Villwock as one of the greatest drivers in the history of the sport."
