by Mark S. Daniels

World of Wings, Inc. (WOW), have announced that they will be holding three separate prize drawings on Sunday, September 17th, after the Unlimited Gold Race at the 2000 Reno National Championship Air Races.

The first drawing is sponsored by the Miss America Air Racing Team and features a package deal for one person that includes:

  • A day with Dr. Brent Hisey and the Team talking and learning about "Miss America" operations;

  • A selection of "Miss America" Racing Apparel.

  • A ride in Race 11, the North American P-51D Mustang "Miss America;"

  • Dinner that same evening with Dr. Brent Hisey and the "Miss America" crew;

  • One night's hotel accommodations;

  • Up to $400.00 for round trip air fare to and from Wiley Post Airport, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

The Miss America Air Racing Team is based at Wiley Post Airport, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, where one winner will travel to by air to claim their prize. The "Miss America" racer – an icon of Reno Air Racing – is considered the most recognized P-51 in the world, and is one of the few, dual-control P-51 racers, both in existence and currently racing at Reno.

The second drawing is sponsored by Tomos Products, the North American distributor for Kymco Motor Scooters, and features a Kymco Motor Scooter painted up in "Miss America" Team colors. The Motor Scooter will be autographed by Dr. Bent Hisey, the pilot of "Miss America," and presented by Dr. Hisey and Bruce Ramsey, Sales Manager for Tomos Products in North America.

The final drawing is sponsored by TiVo and features a TiVo unit for the winner's home television set. More information about TiVo and its products can be found on the internet at: http://www.tivo.com

The drawings will be held at the World of Wings Pavilion, a 30 x 40 foot tented facility which will be located behind the main grandstands, adjacent to the entry gate for the Pits. World of Wings will be at the Pavilion selling merchandise from six of the top contenders in Unlimited Class Air Racing, including Dago Red, Strega, Critical Mass, Voodoo, Miss America and Rare Bear.

The pilots from all six teams will also be on hand throughout the races to meet and have their pictures taken with fans, sign autographs, and "just talk." A schedule will be posted at the Pavilion announcing the day and time of each pilot's appearance.

General Paul Tibbets Jr. is also scheduled to be at the Pavilion all day Saturday, to sign copies of his book "Return of the Enola Gay" for his readers.
