That's a ton of airplanes. Are RVs saving Reno?

I think it is fair to say that the Sport Class is a major force at the Reno Air Races (Lancairs/Glasairs/Thunder Mustangs/RVs). While the Unlimiteds are still fun to watch, from this spectator's point of view they need more competition, and competition in that class takes verrrry deep pockets.

Default more than just Reno???

I came from a small track stock car experience in my teens....
there was NO doubt the impact a few dozen teams made to the local economy, all booking hotels, buying parts, fuel, & the fans who travelled etc. etc.

The bigger deal!?....could the Sport Class run places BESIDES Reno?
of course!.....they don't need the huge course and massive investment in bleachers and security etc. etc.

OMG! shades of 1920!...there could be nationwide air races!

No need to back to the 20's to find lots of races. Unlimiteds have run at Cape May NJ, So Florida, Texas, San Diego, Lancaster, and Boulder City. MANY races for F1, biplanes and sometimes T6's at many other locations.
F1's raced at Reading PA, White Plains NY, Dansville, Niagara Falls and Fulton NY just to name a few in late 40's early 50's.
