    Neal,

    Good thing RARA/Washoe County secured the land and fenced the course off.

    Thanks for taking shots like that and sharing them.

    What a time, I bet the 3 boys on the roof of the suburban have good memories and tell stories of being there.

    Great look, Neal.

    Good catch with the two people on the right foreground holding their ears.

    No doubt the folks on top of the Jimmy are FAA, right?

    2018 - Sport Class Pits

    Beautiful planes

    So sleek and still they find minor adjustments here and there to gain better airflow.

    Strega, Voodoo and the Bearcat, the last really fast air racers and they're not going to race. Who would've thought it would end like this?

    Do you believe it's ending, or are you referring only to the level of competition in the UNL class?
