WHAT IS NAG?
From Mojave. California; to Miami, Florida. From Mexicali in
Mexico, to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan in Canada Volunteer members of
the National Air-racing Group were there, judging, timing,
flagging, keeping score and doing a dozen other behind-the-scene
chores, helping to keep the air races on track
Other NAG volunteers can be found working at Air Race Headquarters
with the NAG EXPRESS. Computing the final results after each
racing event, the NAG EXPRESS will run as many as 1500 to 2000
copies of these results and distribute copies to each racing team
in the pits, the announcers' table, the media compound and several
other individuals as required, all within minutes after the race.
