"Winningest" - The Bill Muncey Chronicles

For over 30 years, the great Bill Muncey held the record as the winningest driver in the history of Unlimited Hydroplane Racing.

Wil Muncey was born before his father achieved fame and watched the entire story unfold from an up close and personal point of view. He has chronicled his memories in a new book which long time fans of the sport will find to be a fascinating read.

In the book, Muncey's son gives fans a behind the scenes look at the life and career of the man, boat racer, musician, broadcaster and father.

The book is titled "Winningest" and is available through Amazon or can be ordered through the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum:
