I've seen these races on TV a few times, once over the River Thames. I always thought the Detroit River and our skyline would be an excellent venue for these races. Now, it a looks like it will happen. Should be fun.

Looks like the race is officially a go. Just wish all these internationals had a better facility to take off from than Coleman A young Municipal field (i.e City Airport). And by better, I'm referring to the area and not so much the airport itself.

I think naming after Jimmy Carter is much more offensible than Reagan, but I will agree on your C.A.Y. statement.

Whatever city you're in, stay away from Martin Luther King Blvd.
