J. Michael Kelly Captures Bill Muncey Cup at Bayfair

Michael Champ2J. Michael Kelly won the Bill Muncey Cup at San Diego Bayfair on Sunday, capping the 50th anniversary celebration for the three-day event on Mission Bay.

Kelly was declared the winner after the leader Jimmy Shane was ruled by H1 Unlimited officials to have veered into Kelly’s lane on Lap 4 in the Final. Shane, who won Bayfair in 2013, was penalized one lap and received a monetary fine.

An emotional Kelly soaked in the victory that became official about 30 minutes after the final was completed on the 2 ½-mile Bill Muncey course. Fran Muncey, wife of the late Bill Muncey, presented the trophy to Kelly on the 50th anniversary.

“It’s very cool to be a part of the history of Bill Muncey,” Kelly said. “Knowing I’ll never have what he’s done, but to be part of that history is pretty special.”
