is a former member of the Spirits who learned to fly Quickie 500 here in
St. Louis. He formerly worked for McDonnell Aircraft, but got a job
offer in Ohio that was too good to refuse. Ohio is "the hot bed"
of pylon racing. Marcus has come a long way...he is also very competitive
in the Q40 event! Way to go Marcus!
Marcus ran an 8 3/4 X 9 1/4 prop to be
compatible with the weather conditions at the NATS. His Nelson
engine was turning a comfortable 19,400 at launch. His caller is Mike Condon.
Below are the top ten winners/competition that
Marcus flew against...the top names in pylon racing. Looks like the
"Vortex" is the current aircraft of choice, and of course a Nelson, or Jett
