1951 APBA Gold Cup
Lake Washington, Seattle WA, August 4, 1951
Set Speed-Boat Record
Seattle, August 2,  (AP) The flame-red speed boat Such Crust set a new Gold Cup race qualifying record of 93.34 miles an hour on Lake Washington today.
The old standard of 92.402 was made in 1949 in Detroit by Wild Bill Cantrell in My Sweetie. Cantrell is here driving Horace Dodges Hornet.
Two other boats, the Hurricane IV of Los Angeles and the Quicksilver of Portland, Ore., qualified before Danny Foster brought up Such Crust, owned by Jack Schafer of Detroit.
