JOHNNY WEHRLE AWARD

In his first season, Johnny Were, of Hackensack, NJ, took two first places and as he says, "about three seconds and thirds, including approximately eight flips." The second year, 1954, he did better, taking twelve firsts and being high point winner in New Jersey for runabouts and hydro and second place in high point winner for the U.S.

During the 1955 racing season, twenty-year-old Wehrle and his crew traveled slightly over 35,000 miles in pursuit of points, trophies and glory, and when the totals were added up it was a clear cut decision for Wehrle, with an over-all high point scoring of 27,687 markers during the season. Johnny drove four classes, A Runabout, B Runabout, A Hydro, and B Hydro using Mercury motors in all four classes. He used Sid-Craft boats in the runabout division and Jacoby Flyaway three pointers in the hydro division.
