While there is sure to be plenty of on-track action at the 27th-Annual World Crown 300, there will be a host of thrills in the skies above Gresham Motorsports Park as well during the Saturday, November 13 portion of the four-day racefest.
Thanks to the Autumn Fly-In and Aviation Day at the Jackson County Airport, the skies around GMP will be loaded with airplanes on November 13. Presented by the Jackson County Aviation Association, the fifth-annual event will feature somewhere between 50 and 100 single engine experimental, vintage and modern airplanes. There will also a car show with more than 50 vehicles, airplane rides, exhibits, vendors and kid activities.
Last year’s Fly In at the Lyle Field location drew a crowd of more than 3,000 and attendance estimates for this fall’s Autumn Fly In on Saturday, November 13 are in the 4,000-5,000 range.
“This is a free event, no admission charged,” said Glenn Boyd, Jackson County Airport Manager. “We do request people give a donation and this year, those monies will be donated to the Jackson County Boys and Girls Club. It’s going to be a great event.”
