    If 232 has a healthy powerplant he can walk away from the Buick all day. I think 480+ laps are not out of the question if everything is up to snuff (IMHO).

    Hoot looked like he was just cruisin' around. 232 can go 470+ when it's time to put the cards on the table.....Nice run by the Buick!

    What's with the Sea Furies and the tail wheels?

    232 was nipping at the Buick's heels the whole race today....not sure of pylon cuts.... was watching on live feed.

    Well.... IF its a racing 3350 and not just a -26WD. 232 might be the fastest Sea Fury ever to fly a stock -26WD (or maybe its Spirit of Texas), but that's still not enough to pass the Buick if the Buick doesn't want to be passed. ;-)

    All the news we kept hearing was that 232 was getting a "hot" powerplant with rumors of a slow gearcase, though, so yeah. Shoulda been able to get around, if that's indeed what's under the cowl.

    Hummn... see this thread

    From where I was (general admission lawn chair seating next to heritage)... and from what I see in the photo in the linked post.. hard to tell.. I guess, no real reason to push to win today.. Sure looked like Hoot wanted by though..

    GREAT racing, really bringing back the spirit, good vibe here this year, if you're not here yet, or were not thinking of coming, better get on that airplane or in your car and get here.. gonna be a great weekend of Reno National Championship Air Racing!!!!!!!!
