Default Red Chose not to enter this year

I don't wonder that you ask about Red. He and Marilyn and Wittman W10 Tailwind Race #37 are most popular and extremely FAST! I missed see them as well. They flew in the Great Northwest Air Race III in Ephrata, WA and the Big Sky Air Race II in Three Forks, Montana earlier this year and set a new FX Red speed record each time. There is no doubt in my mind that they would have topped 250 mph in the AVC race this past Sunday. As it turned out their record of 236.18 was broken by Jeff Mallia in a Cozy Mk III at 237.43 mph and an opportunity like this may never come again.
