    If I remember correctly PM showed up REALLY late one year and was part of the reason for the rule change. The following year they barely made it by the new deadline that had been set.

    I've been watching FlightAware and haven't seen any action yet. For the past few years every flight has been tracked so I would assume it'll show up when she's in the air.

    I sort of get the feeling that we're collectively all on the same exact page today! I've been on the edge of my seat for days now. Counting the minutes until Markers gets off work!

    Only further proving that, just maybe, if you're going through the effort to bring your raceplane from far from RENO, you're given a bit of slack.. maybe even a bit more slack. I know the crowd would love being a part of a countdown... a thing like this could bring great excitement if properly executed , meaning, set the clock for when you're sure they are "getting close" then start it... WOW... everyone would be on the same edge of their seats that we are today! There can be a bit of "show business" in sport and still be sport!

    With the extended deadline the crew seems to be taking their time with the engine testing. The crew will be doing a test flight later tomorrow, do a final check, then fly out to Stead. So far most everything is going well for the most part. The one exception to this would be that the team did find a very minor leak in the prop governor which will be monitored and if needed, repaired after arrival at Stead.

    Great news - after 4+ hours run time the screen "looked really good" according to engine builder Rick Shanholtzer. This was the second check of the screen (first one shows good as well) so Rick told Scotty to get Miss A tied down for the final run-in. With everything looking good, this last test will be when Rick adds some serious power to the aircraft... gotta be tied down for that.

    More soon!!!!!!
