    Default No Strega, No Voodoo, No Bear and Maybe No Sanders

    Good luck with this years “races” the story is now breaking in the new Warbirds Intl. Team Sanders are currently grounded due to a situation and if it’s not resolved by Sept they are out too. Jay is done racing and Strega is not coming. ( Jay is still the 7 Pilot). So the winner is SAwbones? No thanks . The Sanders issue is the reason Dennis did not fly at Chino. Voodoo are an open question at this point and haven’t said yes or no under their new situation. Rod isn’t coming back - that’s not even news anymore.

    This years race was shaping up to be Dreadnought, Sawbones, Miss A, and Goldfinger for gold. No one was expecting Voodoo obviously, no one was expecting Bear obviously even though Rod has Reno listed its either a stocker or nothing, even if Strega cane it would be boring to watch a repeat of Voodoo and Czech Mate (but not even Czech Mate to compete)... no one has had high expectations for this years Super Unlimiteds, I think I have support in saying that a good and VERY competitive gold race will be held just by some slower planes that still do over 400. Itíll be a bummer if Dreadnought doesnít show, but Iím in full support of Brown and Hisey racing for gold in super stockers. And add in a stock Bearcat when we havenít had a stocker since 2009 and a Kingcobra which we havenít seen since....? AND a very competitive sport class. This year is gonna be awesome!!!!

    Really, everyone that competes at Reno is a winner.

    There will most definitely be people cheering for Sawbones and any other team that takes the checked flag.

    Go Sawbones Go

    Sawbones can win if second place is six inches behind and diving to overtake at the finish...

    The "races" are about more than 3 airplanes, or even a whole class for that matter.

    It will be nice to see a new winner for a change. It's been Strega and Voodoo swapping first place the past....12 years or so?

    Think it has anything to do with the midair collision a few years ago?

    Got word directly from a team member today that the Sander's airplanes will be at Reno.
