    So Miss America is back. Good to see that. I know that her ownership kept her away for a few years due to a dispute with race management. With Voodoo and Strega not racing this year, her presence is a great addition.

    Should make for some interesting racing with some of the heavy hitters not showing.
    A few people have had disputes with race commission

    Next year hang out in section 3. They are the ones that make all the noise and hold that huge American flag every day at opening ceremonies.

    We were there for the first time this year from Thursday to Sunday. Had a great time. Reno’s a great town to visit.
