John Parker Will Race Thunder Mustang 351 at Reno 2004
Reno Stead Airport
June 23, 2004

The other day on the AAFO Hangar Talk Message board, Jon Sharp spoke of the dream start that it would be if he, Darryl Greenamyer and John Parker, were all together at the beginning of the Gold finals on Sunday at Reno 2004.

It looks like that dream start could become a reality!

In a press release just received at AAFO, John Parker was able to confirm the hope he had expressed last week at Pylon Racing School, that all was well this year for his entry into competition once again...

Press Release Content:
"American Air Racing is pleased to announce the participation of John Parker and American Air Racing in the 2004 National Championship Air Races and Air Show in Reno, Nevada. Following a candid and very positive meeting between Tom Robinson, Joey Scolari of RARA and John Parker, it has been decided to move forward with preparations for the air races in September 2004. American Air Racing is looking forward to competing in the Sport Class and is committed to raising the level of competition."

Welcome back John Parker!

With earlier announced increase in the Sport Division purse for the 2004 event, (see details here) the addition of Parker, and if all goes well with NemesisNXT and Greenamyer's Lancair Legacy, the competition in the Sport Division for the Gold trophy should be the best since the inception of the Kit-Built racers in 1998.

The Reno National Championship Air Races will be held this year on September 16-17-18-19 at the Reno-Stead airport, Reno, Nevada. For tickets and up-to-date scheduling information, visit the Reno Air Racing Association's website at
