    Was Steve Senegal unable to get Endeavor started today? That airplane certainly doesn't belong in the Silver! I remember at least once years ago when something like this happened and the Silver was actually won at a faster speed than the Gold winner got. This could be one of those years.

    I do love seeing Slatter's airplane running so well. Dan Gilbert, who originally designed and built the airplane is an old friend of ours, and I watched the airplane come together. Somewhere I've got a bunch of pictures of the partially completed fuselage in Dan's garage, and the wings in a trailer in the back yard -- that must have been in the late 1990s. Dan really wanted to beat Nemesis. He just started the racer too late in life...

    I was very disappointed that they did not get the Livestream feed going in time for the big IF1 heat -- I set my alarm, got up early, and then no race to watch! That and the Sport Gold heat werere the two races I really wanted to watch. I think the Gold is not til 10:40 Sunday morning -- I'm really hoping they get the feed going for that Race...

    An interesting (to me, anyway) factoid that I just found out this evening is that Lowell Slatter, who's been going so fast the last couple of years, got his start in Air Racing as a pickup crew member for Race #17. He apparently ran into Carl Swenson back in Texas and expressed an interest in the Races. Carl invited him to help out, and years later here he is at the top of the heap. Another reason that it's nice to see Philip Goforth bring Carl's old Racer to Reno...
