2008 Air Race Classic “Top 10” Drawing As scheduled, on February 9, 2008, the drawing for the first 10 race numbers was held at the Vernon Conly Air Service Hanger at LaBelle Municipal Airport (X14). All racers whose applications were postmarked on or before January 31 st and who were received were in the hunt for the low numbers. In all, 16 race teams were in the drawing and we had 3 other teams purchase numbers after Classic 10.
