    Default Miss America: RENO AIR RACES 2022 - Exciting Things Happening

    I've been cleared by Doc Hisey to give a little tease about what their RENO 2022 plans are..

    I have NOT been cleared to give any technical details, however, I have been invited to "embed" with the team to get an inside look at their, hopefully, victorious RNO22 campaign...

    So, I've been cleared to say their are significant changes to the airplane and they are getting ready for a major run at the trophy..

    That's it...

    Are the unlimiteds dead.. Not as long as guys like Doc are possessing the desire to win!

    I do not have all the details yet, many, enough to know it's going to mean a significant speed increase...

    Dunno about you but this really is exciting to me!!

    I'm looking forward to this... Both Dr. Hisey taking the trophy, and Wayne writing about it!

    A few days back when Wayne hinted, "I've got one more project at RENO and it's Mic Drop" I thought just maybe RARA had a new announcer for the Unlimiteds. LOL Maybe I wasn't so far off.

    Knowing what I know about Miss A, I hope this is the beginning of a new chapter in its racing history, rather than the last chapter. The Unlimiteds aren't dead, we have Sport class guys dropping BiG $$$$$$$$$$ to make the step up (I know of 4 Sport racers who are all in, Jim Rust and Jeff Lavelle are the two known, and I'm not going to let the cat out of the bag for the other two.) plus we have Robert Dickson with Swamp Fox coming out for the first time, as well as another who's name I can't think of. We have Scotty Crandlemire with his Yak (He raced IF1 with Dusty years ago, so he's not really a new comer to Reno.) There is interest from Sam Davis with his Yak, Graeme Frew would really like to come back and race someone's Yak if he can't get Full Noise back. Tsunami is still making progress. We need to have some faith that the new faces will continue to return. We don't know what Jim and Jeff are up to, but they are both very competitive and I can't see them both being happy to race each other at the front of the Silver, going slower than they would in their Sport class birds yet with a much higher cost.

    If things play out like I think they will, we will see only one Sea Fury on the podium this year. (Unless Sawbones comes back, or an unexpected return of Czechmate, Strega or Voodoo.) Yep the silly season has arrived, and I think we have lots to be excited about.

    I'd really like to see Miss A take home the trophy this year.

    Will

    I would be very happy to see Miss A on the top step of the box this year.
