No Strings Attached, Race 79, pulled up and out about lap 4. Landed safely. Looks like Justin and the crew have some work to do.

News from the hangar...

No Strings Attached

Ran out first race this morning and had to pull out mid race due to faulty oil pressure readings. Chased it all down to electrical gremlins and it's all sorted and ready to go for tomorrow. Will start at the back of the silver at 8am and work to get back into the gold for Sunday. Stay tuned at Reno Air Races.

My guys are back in the game...

Today's Results...

No Strings Attached

So this is just our year to face challenges. After our mayday due to a erroneous oil pressure indication we had a good oil leak today which forced us to pull out while leading. The airplanes body work is so tight that we just kept all of our oil on the cowl and fuselage. 😩. Anyway I'm now getting good at maydays and now it's time to clean the oil out

Bronze and Silver Results...

No Strings Attached finally got going and lapped the Bronze field twice. They were First Alternate for the Silver but the cards didn't fall their way. Next year.
