          Super yak, r2000 power, should be extremely close to rushin thunder and steadfast in terms of performance.

            MIss Trinidad should be a 400+ mph contender. R2000 powered, Nearly identical to Rushin Thunder. Those two should have an epic race.

            Other entries of interest, race 43... I believe it is the H model Mustang. Race 69 is no stranger to Reno either. Has clean wings, and was formerly known as Georgia Mae. I'll list 69 as a wild card. Likely running a stock engine, but back in the day, running a not so hopped up engine, it was fast for its power. It could be a surprise for the Sea Furies.

            RT Dickson flies a really nice line, he should be fun to watch.

            Needless to say we won't have a parade for the gold race. The silver should be pretty good as well. The Bronze will be a bronze race until someone decides they want to take the final bronze trophy home.

              Some initial thoughts/predictions after diving deep into the entry list -

              Unlimited: Bardahl Special, Miss America, Dreadnought, Argonaut, 924, Rushin’ Thunder, & Miss Trinidad is the Gold field. That’s 7 so if everyone holds together the Silver winner can bump to round it out. Considering that’ll likely be the H Model or Boise Bee, that probably won’t happen. I don’t expect Plum Crazy to be able to keep up with either of those two, but Miss Mavel might be able to if Jim’s doing bare minimum Goldfinger mods (not confirmed, but possible). Should be good racing in the rest of the field, glad to see Lady Jo back! Lady B was on the very first list that came out and it fell off so we’ll see if we end up with 23 or 22 entries.

              Sport: Race 39, One Moment, Havoc, & Too Much, should all be gunning for 400mph. I’m hesitant to say that Kevin’s new Race 7 is going to be able to run at the top with the experimental engine. Race 8 will be nice to have back to keep the top dogs honest. Race 28, we’ll have to see… A surprise I was hoping would come to frutition is Peter Balmer in Race 44 which should be Miss Karen II. Another Super Legacy good for 350+. Very curious to see what Guardian Angel can do since they’ve been fine tuning it all offseason. All said and done with the other Thunder Mustang added we should have 10 “Gold” planes. With a full field of 8 who knows we might finally have a Gold field without any NA Legacy’s in it. The only plane I’m missing is the beautiful Race 77 Super Legacy that was at PRS.

              T6: Not much to say here. All of the fastest Gold racers plus Miss TNT, and a nearly full field.

              Jet: This small class was expected. Gold should be American Spirit vs. Just Lucky. The Silver might be all stock L-29’s for once.

              F1: Limitless for the win? Fraed Naught is fast in the right hands, and we’ll see if that is Josh. Last year was his rookie year and I would assume there’s a steep learning curve from a pretty stock Cassutt to a top Gold racer. Without Miss Min and Endeavor, those are at the top. ACME Special II (Ex-Invictus) could be a surprise contender and Matt is a very experienced pilot.

              Is it September yet?

                Nice post Will! I'm up to my neck getting the motorhome ready but I'll be there with 48x18 foot site... lots of room for you! bringing my little kitty...She is totally deaf and won't mind the "music" of the airplanes.. She is too fussy and has to be fed separately from out much younger kitty who is scared of her own shadow! Buddy Allen is going to take care of that one while we're

                  Even though it's mostly stockers it is great to see a pretty good size field of unlimiteds.. Hopefully, everybody stays together and it's a safe week. That would be a good way for this chapter to close.

                    Can't remember what happened to Saw Bones, but kinda expected to see that plane on the list. Can someone please update her status/condition?
                    Thank you.

                      There was a fallout between the owner and Curt Brown a few years ago. Plane is up for sale.
