Victoria Holt and Dianna Stanger

Flying a Cirrus SR 22

The race consists of two-person teams flying over the course of four days. All teams are required to check in at each of nine stops along the route, and must be at one of these stops by nightfall. Because the teams fly a variety of different aircraft, the race is based on a handicap for each team, not necessarily who crosses the finish line first.

Completing the 4 day race, Dianna & Victoria were the 20th team to make it to the finish at Batavia, Ohio on Friday. They would not find out their final standing until Sunday night though.
