The National Guard / Polaris / Coastal Yokley
Racing Team made an appearance at the 23rd
annual Thunder over Louisville. The 83
foot team hauler and Polaris Ranger RZR XP900
race machines were the main attraction in the
Army National Guard's display area. The 7
hour air show featured 90 aircraft, most of them
military. All types of aircraft
participated including World War II P-51
Mustangs to modern Super Cobra attack
helicopters and F-22 Raptor fighter jets.
The display of more than 70 tons of fireworks
capped the evening off, marking the launch of
festivities culminating in the May 5 running of
the Kentucky Derby.

Even with the temperatures in the 50s, some
405,000 spectators turned out watching from both
sides of the Ohio River and from more than 300
boats. The atmosphere is very family
orientated and the event is supported by the
city of Louisville Kentucky, and many area
corporate sponsors. William Yokley met
with the crowd all day and gave out team
posters. The attached photos were taken in
the morning about 10 hours before the fireworks
show and before most of the crowd arrived.
