Buckle up, hydroplane racing enthusiasts! We're taking you on an exhilarating trip down memory lane, back to the golden era of Thriftway Racing, the team that dominated the sport in the 1950s and 60s. With the help of a vintage 1994 audio cassette from Thunder on the Water, we'll explore the legacy of Thriftway Racing through the eyes of the legendary Don Poier. You'll get to relive the triumphs of the Miss Thriftway team and understand why this brand still resonates with hydroplane fans today.

But that's not all, folks! We've got some thrilling news about the return of Thriftway to the scene, thanks to a newfound partnership with the U-21 Go Fast Turn Left Racing team. We'll share the emotional story of Greg O'Farrell, the determined owner of Go Fast Turn Left, and his lifelong connection to Thriftway. With a mix of nostalgia and newfound excitement, you're in for a real treat with this episode!
