Tulsa Air and Space Museum Announces First QuikTrip Air & Rocket Racing Show

Partners With Rocket Racing League For A "Glimpse Of The Future"

Jim Bridenstine, the Executive Director of the Tulsa Air and Space Museum and Planetarium (TASM), announced the first-ever QuikTrip Air and Rocket Racing Show, and a new partnership with the Rocket Racing League in a news conference Tuesday. The QuikTrip Air and Rocket Show will be held at Tulsa International Airport on Saturday, April 24, 2010, beginning at 0930(CT), and a preview of the Rocket Racing League will highlight the show.

"The Tulsa Air and Space Museum is thrilled to host the inaugural QuikTrip Air and Rocket Racing Show," said Bridenstine, a Rocket Racing Team owner and Navy pilot, decorated for combat operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. "We will be hosting nationally acclaimed air show acts including the Franklin Flying Circus and Younkin Aerobatics, as well as giving our audience a true "sneak peak" at the future of air racing as the Rocket Racers take flight."

"Rocket Racers are designed to provide the most exciting form of space-age entertainment to spectators and fans, and we're excited to be a part of the QuikTrip Air and Rocket Racing Show," said Dr. Peter Diamandis, Co-Founder and Chairman of Rocket Racing League. "We look forward to a long and successful partnership with QuikTrip, the Tulsa Air and Space Museum, and the city of Tulsa. This will truly be an amazing event for fans of all ages."

Bridenstine also will use this event to showcase Tulsa as a prime location to permanently display one of NASA's retiring Space Shuttles. "As NASA looks to private companies to advance rocket science and space technology, we are honored that the Rocket Racing League will be visiting Tulsa. With our city's history of supporting NASA and this new partnership with the RRL, we are continuing to position Tulsa as an ideal location to preserve a shuttle."

The Rocket Racing League is a new and unique sports and gaming franchise based on competitions of piloted rocket-powered aircraft. Rocket Racing combines the exhilaration of racing with the power of rocket engines, creating thrilling entertainment for racing fans, gamers, and technology enthusiasts. To be held at venues across the country, Rocket Racers will compete live, in head-to-head races through a 3D Raceway-In-The-Sky. Fans will witness the live action in real time on large projection screens fed by the Ground Based Augmented Reality System. Through the use of unique remote and rocket-mounted cameras, fans at home will have the unique sensation of riding right alongside famed Rocket Racing League pilots.

The Tulsa Air and Rocket Show will be held on the Tulsa International Airports' western runway located directly behind the Tulsa Air and Space Museum.
