The field is set for the 42nd Annual Air Race Classic (ARC), the annual all-women cross-country airplane race. Fifty-six teams, consisting of 121 women pilots from across the country and around the world, will take off at 8:00 a.m., Tuesday, June 19, 2018 from Sweetwater, Texas, for a 2,656-mile sprint across the United States that ends Friday, June 22 in Fryeburg, Maine.
At each of the eight intermediate stops – Alva, Oklahoma; Beatrice, Nebraska; Faribault, Minnesota; Galesburg, Illinois; Auburn, Indiana; Cadillac, Michigan; Newark, Ohio; and Penn Yan, New York – teams will execute high-speed flybys over a timing line as they race against the clock.
