Jimmy Shane, J. Michael Kelly win Sunday morning heat races at APBA Detroit Gold Cup

Jimmy Shane kept his APBA Detroit Gold Cup record clean with a heat race victory Sunday morning.
The driver of the U-6 Oberto won Heat 3A.
Shane on Saturday won Heat 1A and Heat 2B.
On Friday, he was the fastest qualifier in the H1 Unlimited event on the Detroit River.
J. Michael Kelly won Heat 3B on Sunday. Only two boats started that heat, Kelly's and the U-21 driven by Brian Perkins.
"It's pretty lumpy out on the course right now," Shane said. "It's white-capping out there a little. This is the Detroit water that I expected to be racing on. We set the boat up for this kind of conditions. The Oberto handled it beautifully."
The wind blew from the north during heats 3A and 3B.
"It can stay in that direction as long as it gets a little bit lighter," Shane said. "Everybody's got to race in it. Hopefully everybody will use their heads. The Belle Isle turn was nice and calm today. The straightaways are pretty lumpy."
