1958 Detroit Memorial
Detroit River, Detroit MI, June 14, 1958
Gale Blows Race Thriftway Wins
Willard Rhodes unexpectedly entered Miss Thriftway in the Detroit Memorial Trophy Race, June 14. Driver Bill Muncey, nursing a sick engine around the course, brought the Seattle boat home a winner. Driver Lee Schoenith made a costly mistake when he jumped the gun with his Gale VI in the final heat; Muncey limped home ahead behind him. The Detroit boat had to take an extra lap.
