    I'm just not sure how "retired" Voodoo is. With it at POF and being worked on day in and day out, I feel it was more of a Button retirement rather than Voodoo. We shall see...?

    The Bear was parked with a healthy engine. It wasn't a crazy hot engine, but it did finish healthy. 232 needs an engine. Hopefully we will see both return. If no Voodoo or Strega, the Bear walks onto the 1st place podium pretty easily (There is nothing easy about getting the Bear through the weekend...)

    As for Voodoo being done, hard to say. Time will tell. Strega is being flown somewhat regularly lately so we know they are healthy airframe wise.

    Could be an interesting year.

    Rod needs to race the Bear or sell it someone who will. Unlimited Air Racing is not complete without the Bear.

It does look like they’re making good progress on their restorations either way. I think rather than time being the issue, does Bear even have a pilot??
    Rod having great fun with his son doing off road racing,(Spitfire Off Road Racing).Doing all the major off road races with two trucks,a Caravan support aircraft and helicopter for chase.A whole lot less money than air racing and major television coverage and on natural gas (Lewis Energy).

    The Tigercat is always a welcome sight and sound at Reno.

    Didn't The Bear have a stock engine that was intended for FIFI, but "borrowed".

    Back in 2009. Had a few more "mods" before being installed.
