The races and racers were all insured, and this is an ugly and unfortunate although not unexpected fallout. The attorney's statement is typical in its' inflammatory and emotional hyperbole - hopefully there will be a honorable jury selected and justice will be done for all parties involved with a minimum of ridiculous enrichment for this ambulance chaser. Meanwhile, supporters of the Air Races are working behind the scenes with many of those affected by the accident by volunteering their time, treasure and talent - I remain hopeful that this will all work out, and am doing my little part to aid the process where I can and I suggest everyone else who cares to does so as well. You can give directly to the charity established for victims and survivors at Home | ThinkKindness.org | Helping | Children | Donate. Anyone interested in volunteering directly to the efforts from the Reno area or for victims around the US can PM me and I will put you in touch with the appropriate folks.
