OMG, I suspect the entry road will be supremely muddy and boggy once again. Oh no.........

With all that humidity in the air plus the cold temperatures, there could be fog also. Batten down the hatches.
I don't have tire chains but maybe I should get some for the annual pilgrimage into the Tucson field.

Thanks Tucson for hosting a wonderful Warbird race. Congratulations to John G. and Timpa for hosting a first class event. The dirt road to the field was very manageable and the Mexican Cold Front brought in mild cold winds but the contestants and the contest management overcame these issues.
Loads of fun at 10 times the cost. More Tequila please!!!!!
See you all at the next race in Victorville March 30th.
The Canadians are bringing their "eh" game so watch out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Default Fun race.

The Tucson race was great. It had everything. It was a real break-out, crash, and cut fest. The weather was actually pretty good. The sun came out for the first time all week and it turned out to be a really nice day with very light winds. John picked the best day of the month for this event. See all you guys next month in Calif.

Thanks to all the workers and pilots who put up with the cold and muddy road to attend and work the race. I was impressed with the high degree of competition among the contestants with all the breakouts and near breakouts in all the classes. Good start to a new race season, thanks again.
