The Switzer wing they show here, UU23 had a co driver by the name of Gene Lanham. Just a bit later, he was the throttle man for Doc Magoon as they won race after race and began to build a winning reputation for that new offshore boat company called.........CIGARETTE.

Now I know how "cigarette" boats got their name! By the end it made me want a cigarette and a scotch!
