BAY CITY, Mich — Mike Seebold drove his Team Australian Gold Formula One tunnel boat to victory at the Dobson Heavy Haul Bay City River Roar. The June 24 race was the second stop on the Laughlin Formula One P.R.O.P. Tour Presented by Bud Light.

Seebold, Formula One P.R.O.P. Tour's defending series champion, prevailed on the rough waters of the Saginaw River for his 12th career Formula One P.R.O.P. Tour victory. Seebold was challenged during the 40-lap race by his younger brother Tim, Terry Rinker, Max Toler and a handful of other drivers.

Greg Foster led the early part of the race until he was passed by Rinker on
lap 12. Rinker held the lead for the next ten laps until he was passed by
Mike Seebold. Seebold was able to hold off Rinker during the last few laps
for the victory. Rinker finished second and Toler secured his
second consecutive third-place finish. Rounding out the top five were Jason
Campbell and Garrett Armstrong.

The Dobson Heavy Haul Bay City River Roar Formula One race will be televised
on ESPN2 on Saturday, July 14 at 6:30 PM (EDT). The next stop on the 2001 Laughlin Formula One P.R.O.P. Tour Presented by Bud Light is the Great Northern River Roar July 21-22 at Saskatoon, Canada.
