The race airplane I work on Rare Bear set fastest qualifier at the Reno air races this week at an AVERAGE course speed of 470.2 mph. Friday she won the gold race by a country mile, and today she lapped half the field.
We won todays gold final and it looks like I will be named the crew chief for next season. The only bad thing is that now I must retire from racing DH. Oh well not like a 33 year old mid pack pro has a long shelf life. It has been a great ten year haul on the NORBA circuit.
P.S. Hey Stickman... This is how I measure success... If you ever go to the Air and Space museum and see the Rare Bear with my name on it you can eat your words on what a two time loser I WAS neaky:
