Detroit — In three unusually close qualifying rounds Friday, Andrew Tate of Walled Lake qualified first, at 163.141 mph, for Sunday’s Gold Cup race on the Detroit River.
Tate, a 28-year-old, second year driver bred for unlimited hydroplane racing, also drove the U-9 Les Schwab Tires (known, too, as Realtac/Delta Gear) fastest in qualifying for Saturday’s President’s Cup.
