    OT-2 Jay Leno Sponsorship

    I notice Jay Leno will be at the Nugget in Reno on Nov. 25. Maybe RARA or the" Unlimited" group could talk him into sponsoring them and/or a plane. He does have a Merlin engine on a test stand that he has run in the past so he is aware of things that go fast. Just a thought.

    While it's typically impossible to speak for somebody else, I have a hard time time disagreeing here. More money than sense, a fitting passion, a museum and TV show to receive any attention given to him. I think somebody who's influential like Jay is could be a big deal if it's handled properly. The money side is one thing, and the promotional end of it could also be huge. he's got lots of fans with lots of passion. Maybe film some sort of episode featuring a racer to really get people's attention? Hell, Jay should buy a racer!

    Last I heard it had been discussed with him and he has no interest whatsoever.

    He went for a ride with the Blue Angels. Someone should invite him to go for a ride during race week and take him out on the unlimited course.

    His TV show "Jay Leno's Garage" needs to do an episode at NCAR and take that ride in Dreadnaught around the sticks.

    A T-6, Sport Class and a Jet would also be cool. Really impress this guy. Not just a segment on the "Garage" show but a whole show.

    This was my understanding as well. If he had any interest at all, I would think he'd already be around. It's not like he hasn't heard of Reno.
    You'll get your chance, smart guy!
