Sarah Dittman, center, and Erin Conner, right, raced for Purdue University. They are both students, Sarah's first race and Erin's second.

Teammates Ruby Sheldon and Mary Rawlings take a break. The other airplanes had plain, block numbers affixed to their tails for the race. The Cirrus Corp. added a little extra style for their entrant.

All competitors must sign in here and turn in their keys to race officials.
