    I think the first thing RARA needs to do is come up with Sponsor/Revenue to substantially increase the Sunday Gold Prize money for all classes, before we ask them to expand!

    Bronze
    Silver
    Gold

    Then for warbird class

    Bronze - Museum Class
    Silver
    Gold (up to 450 mph)

    Then a new Class with a $500,000.00 payout on Sunday, maybe have a requirement that a minimum of 4 planes entered?
    Super Modified (450+ mph)

    Just thinking out loud here.

    It could be called the "Super Gold Shootout".

    Update on the Ely race. Exciting to see a new venue being developed.

    I talked to Dennis Buehn the other day and it sounds like they are going to do a T6 demo race out there as well. The organizers are looking for pylon judges. Iím going to be somewhere else that weekend so I canít do it.

    Remiss in my reporting duties here... Somehow, I entirely missed this thread! This really is good news, although the 34 years thing is not "quite" true... Tunica and others come to mind.

    But hey... I think I can make it to that one!

    That's great news, I'm all for additional race venues............with that said, what kind of crowds are they going to attract at such a remote site?
