    I think that was Graeme's thinking. I've been a fan of his Yak for years and it was amazing to see it in the Gold!

    By the way: did the announcing team ever tell the crowd that Full Noise used to belong to Tiger from '96 til '97, then went to James Nezgoda with whom it had an accident at Reno in 1999? I'm sure some of the old hands will remember it: https://abpic.co.uk/pictures/view/1235442

    Question

    Will they ship Full Noise back home, or leave it in Reno or Chino?

    Last place Gold gets more money than first place silver.

    Thanks for the feedback. Makes sense, plus that should create more NZ fans for Reno in 2018.

    Hey, enough rides and they can pay for a full race Yak for 2018!

    Yes the last place gold check is bigger, plus the prestige of racing in the gold. Given the choice would one rather win the silver with the smaller check or come in last, get lapped twice for a larger check in the gold? Being this was their first time racing at Reno, possibly a different choice in 2018 on bumping up?

    I am looking forward to seeing Full Noise next year.

    Good Question. Just for the fun of it someone should do a AAFO pole on this question, be interesting to see where we stand on this?

    Based on the money difference, does anyone know the prize money?

    Departure to Chino on Monday noon (the ferry pilot was flying, I talked to him before but I can't remember to his name).
