The Shakey's Special was an unlimited hydroplane first raced in 1973. Tom Martin, Seattle restaurant owner and owner of the first Shakey's Pizza, was a sponsor and a driver of unlimited hydroplane speedboats. Martins's debut race in 1973 was in Shakey's Special; he was unable to finish the race, however, due to mechanical problems.
