Experimenters:  Jay Jones

Argument:  Jay Jones is a long time racer in the Formula class at the Reno National Championship Air Races.  Jay is passionate about the sport and has gone to great lengths to share the sport with others.  Since Reno Jay has been busy tearing into his racer to ready it for the upcoming AirRace1 international race series.  His posted mods include a 4-into-1 exhaust and associated new cowl, a CFD study of his wing, a new submerged tailwheel assembly, and he appears to be in the process of repainting the airplane.  What's even better is he keeps his friends and family up to date on all the cool work that he is doing via his FB team page.
