Hull #8255

One of the most-sponsored hulls in history, the U-40 American Speedy Printing was born in 1982 as the U-8 Executone. It raced two races as the Executone with George Johnson at the wheel. Then for the northwest races, it raced as the U-55 Oh Boy! Oberto with Scott Pierce driving.

In 1983, Fred Leland took over the cockpit and the boat was returned to its familiar blue and white scheme. Leland drove the boat for the first six races of the season, then it became the U-100 KISW / Miss Rock andfinally the U-40 Miss Houston.

The boat finished ninth in national high points during the 1983 season, with a best finish of fifth at the Atlas Van Lines Cup in Romulus, New York.
