The hull debuted in 2000 as the T-6 Miss Budweiser, one of the winningest hulls in hydroplane history. The boat was built for the fuel restrictions that were being levied on the Miss Budweiser team, and was campaigned by the team until they dropped after 2004. Ted Porter and the Precision Performance Equipment LLC team purchased the boat prior to the 2006 season, and Rob Graham continues to run it to this day as the Graham Trucking.
In 2011, the team acquired sponsorship from Valken Sports, a paintball company. Scott Liddycoat drove the boat to a fourth place finish in national high points, including a win at the season-ending UIM World Championship in Doha, Qatar.
