Pay 'n Pak Wins Hydroplane Event

Madison, Ind., July 6 [1975] (UPI) — Pay 'n Pak, chalking up two course records en route, won the $30,000 Indiana Governor's Cup race for unlimited hydroplanes today on the Ohio River.

George Henley of Eatonville, Wash., steered the Seattle-based craft to a first and two seconds in its three heats to beat Weisfield's driven by Billy Schumacher of Seattle.

Pay 'n Pak cruised the 2-mile river course at an average speed of 115.148 mph in the fourth of the day's five heats for one mark.

Henley's fastest lap in the five-lap 12-mile event of 116.883 mph also was a record.
