    I saw images on FB with VERY visible smoke plumes from the "Hungry" wildfire...very close by...and given that the pages for results are once again not changing, I fear the the fires may put the races out this time around.

    Can anyone confirm the status?

    Yes, Race 3 down. Very fast mayday. Extremely hot on 14. Touched about 4000’ down and bounced a few times. One hell of a lot speed. I hope he got out.

    So the plane was having issues after the qual? And then couldn't get the gear down? Ugh

    I’m not sure. We heard mayday and he was already on final. Not even close to making it. Way too fast, way too short. We were in the VOS so really hard to see. No more flights after.

    Looks like a nice qualifying lap for 924 at 372. Anyone know what day Dreadnought is going to qualify? Hopefully Dennis can finally get that trophy.

    Quals have been really tough. There’s a new fire just two valleys away and the Air Tractors we’re running all afternoon. Priority traffic means everyone has to pull off the course and wait. Many ran out of time. I assume the big fire ers are running out of Reno.
