That's one he should have on his wall for sure, or his wife's wall, or the wall of the hangar...or something...maybe I'm vane, but I would totally have a picture like that of myself hanging on my wall.

Clay Lacy's 1970 winner was in Reno this week. The plane has not flown for probably 15yrs. It is a real time capsule wearing it's original paint.

Another really nice one, do you know who had the honors of flying it over from KVNY?

I think it was John Penney. John did most of the flight testing during the week.

The thrash begins. Thom Richard got to Reno from Florida with only 15 minutes to spare before the deadline. The reason the motor is yellow and red is because the race motor seized on the bottom end after only a 10 minute ground run. The race motor was built in about three weeks over in England.
The repaired motor you see here was built by the crew in Florida in about 47hrs. Red case is last years motor, yellow banks and heads from the race motor. Precious had people crawling all over it all week.

Looking forward to a chance to do that Jim.

Tim, nobody brings the flavor of Reno home like you do. That shot of Stevo is otherworldly.

Shooting at Reno is easy. I just follow Tim around, and when he raises his camera ...





What an amazing week at Stead.
