Area 51 does not exist Teresa, and you would be doing yourself a favor by not asking again :) Try and imagine the theme song to the x-files now.

They get hurt everyday at Area 51. Must be the insurance companies nightmare. Just think how many times Mercy Flight goes there and how much these injuries cost everyone on their insurance premiums. If they can afford to race these machines they should pay for seperate injury riders for their injuries so you and I are not paying for their "fun". They should show proof to the operators they have these riders before they are allowed to run.

Police reports are not required in sanctioned competition and practice situations. If it was in the middle of a farm field it would be

LOL! Thank you Dave, I was going to add: "and that thing you claimed to have seen was a weather balloon, from today to the end of time it was just a weather balloon, nothing else, just a weather balloon" :)
