by Courtney Hedlund and Leslie Treppa

MESA, Ariz.--We're off to bed early to get a good night's sleep before start the big race. Tomorrow begins with breakfast at 5:30 a.m. with all of the other racers. The 2006 Air Race Classic will kick-off here in Mesa at 8 a.m. local time, with planes taking off at 30-second intervals. We are team No. 22, so we'll be the 22nd plane in the air. We are very excited to begin the race.
