    Any idea of how much money was actually raised?

    The gofund me is still live. It's not like they took in millions of dollars worth of donations and ran off with the money...I guarantee you he didn't buy a new P-40 for $21,000.

    I dont anyone thinks they ran off with a pile of money. Its one of those things where we all feel PM belongs to all of us. Just like any of the famous race planes. Weve all invested in PM in one way or another, be it donations, t-shirts, or just cheering them on. Its hurts when parts and pieces start showing up on other racers. At the end of the day, were all sure hed be racing it if he could.
    You'll get your chance, smart guy!

    A little change up in the 2020 Yak Attack. N261MS or Race 26 previously owned by sport class pilot Olivier Langeard has a new owner!

    Scotty Crandlemire took ownership of the R-2000 Yak and it is now registered N3X. I'm hoping this is another one of the guys that Dusty is pulling into Unlimited racing. Seems too ironic that he was a F1 racer a few decades ago like Dusty.

    I have no confirmation on if Scotty will be racing it, but it seems pretty likely if Dusty is involved in any caliber!

    I wonder the same thing. I just wonder why they're working on it, if it wasn't going to make a comeback. It would be an easy winner with the last year class. I'm thinking perhaps some other fast racer may be thinking "a shoe in" and will hopefully show for 2020. Maybe wishful thinking, but can always hope.

    I don't think they've really touched it. Ezell/Lewis focus is still the Hellcat first I'm 95% sure.
