2021 Mount Pleasant 150 Race Info

2021 is a most exciting year for the Sport Air Racing League.  The Annual League air race will have a new date and format. THE SPORT AIR RACING LEAGUE SUMMIT, our new annual event is scheduled for Sept, 4-5, 2021.

The Sport Air Racing League Hall of Fame will be on display.   THERE WILL BE AN INDUCTION INTO THE HALL OF FAME DURING THE AWARDS CEREMONY.  Every racer that has won an annual point championship has an individual plaque with photo.  You may be in the Hall of Fame!!!


There are more new and exciting things happening.   New traditions and recognitions will make it fun for all.

The League has commissioned Jo Hunter, Hall of Fame member, photographer and artist to do some special things for us.  Starting in 2022 the League will be providing to sanctioned races an exclusive air racer BUTTON only given to racers at individual event and also there are event buttons for the racers and will be on sale to the public.   These are one year only editions… designs each year.   No peeking for now…..the designs are Jo Hunter originals and spectacular.   


In the past, this event was the final race of the year where League Point Championships were awarded.   The past few years the membership and the number of active racers has declined to the point where there have not been enough pilots earning points to warrant a Point Championship competition.

This year I am still keeping track of points…so far, we’ve only had one race that had 6 League members.  If there is enough participation to warrant awarding these Championships, it will be done at the final race of the season, the Mark Hardin Memorial Air Race in November.   We are waiting on the city of Terrell for the final date, will be either Nov 6 or 13.

The Mount Pleasant 150 Air Race (9/5/21)course takes you down Lake Fork and around East Texas.   Both long and short courses are set.  

I am offering the HANDICAP CLASS again….you race to beat your own top speed.  Open to all prop driven planes that allow a check pilot full view and access to controls and instruments.  No competition in your class handicap is for you……one class with all planes equalized as they are flying against their top speed.  No extra charge for this class.

I will recognize aircraft of the same make and model with a Challenge Class which takes 3 planes to make a class.


 NEW this year, fees have changed, race entry is $50.00 and I need to charge $25 for copilot. I have always given copilots all the perks etc that the pilot gets but with the cost of everything going up I must ask for your help here. Even if you do not race, joining the League for only $25 will be a great help.   I always have extra t-shirts and will sell for $10…a real bargain.

Cash or Check best as credit cards using my Pay Pal depends on local wifi connections.

A New TRADITION is being established.  Collectible exclusive design BUTTONS!  Air Racers only receive a racer button and all may have an event button.  Our own Jo Hunter has designed these and produces them.  No peeking now….a nice surprise for all when you arrive. 

Who will be the new member of the Hall of Fame?   Come and see first hand.

SO, Labor Day weekend head for the ANNUAL League gathering event with an air race.  Do not miss out.


I am very excited about holding this event at Mount Pleasant Regional Airport in Texas.  All I can say is that this facility has all we could want and more.

KOSA is home to the Mid America Flight Museum. This museum is privately owned and funded and all aircraft are kept in flying condition.  No admission is ever charged.  The collection is HUGE.   NEWS FLASH   The Museum just won Grand Champion Antique at Air Venture.

 KOSA is an uncontrolled field and has wonderful facilities and tons of parking.   You will be in Texas where no one is ever a stranger.

Come on Saturday to enjoy the museum which is free and open to public 8am-noon (special racer tour on Sunday morning).  Early registration and meet and greet on Saturday… is a long weekend so come and enjoy the company of your fellow racers and some exciting racing.

The League Hall of Fame will be on display so look for lots to see there! Every racer that has won a Point Championship has a plaque with photos in the Hall.  Come and you may see yourself.   I am launching some new traditions and recognitions too.  Just want to have the best gathering for all pilots/racers.
